As I was driving down 7th Street I saw the corporate headquarters for O’Reilly Autoparts. A fancy new building with a cool copper sculpture. Then I notice water flowing from the center into a pool. I had to stop.
Then I see the water going down into the underground garage. What do you think? I’m impressed.
There are Saguaro’s everywhere in Arizona. There protected, so you just cannot cut one down or even move it in your yard without a permit.
Here’s some with arms and without. Do you know how long it takes before a Saguaro will start growing an arm?
Robert Body is a local photographer that has taken thousands of photographs of the East Valley, Arizona and all across America. His website is a treat to see and you can buy individual prints too. Every other Wednesday is Robert Body’s East Valley day and we are honored to show some of his work.
Robert Body took this photo of the Mesa Arts Center back in 2008. Is it me, or does it seem like we have lots to choose from when it comes to art centers?
Chandler, Tempe, Scottsdale, Phoenix, all the cities have them. Which one is your favorite?

I wish I could take photos like this. Robert Body is a local photographer that has taken some beautiful photos of the East Valley. He has been gracious to allow us to showcase some of his photos. I could probably do one a day for the next 5 years and not showcase all his work. So, here’s my plan.
Every other week on Wednesday we will have “Robert Body’s East Valley”. Starting today. You can click on the labels to see all his work or you can visit his website
to see his Arizona photos and photos from all over America. Enjoy them online or you can even purchase pictures from him to give as gifts or to hang on your own walls.
Want to see a daily photo for your favorite Arizona town? These bloggers post one photo each day about their town or Arizona. On the fifteenth of every month they collaborate and do a common theme.
The winter months in this part of Arizona will give you sunny days in the 60′s. With chilly mornings and the occasional freeze warning. This is a view of downtown Phoenix from Tempe Town Lake.
But, as you look northeast, you might just catch a glimpse of the ‘other Arizona’, one that is 5000 feet in elevation and covered in snow. This is Four Peaks, the closest mountain range to the Phoenix metro area that gets any significant amount of snow.
If you read a lot of blogs you might have come across photo hunts or picture of the day blogs. They’re pretty cool. You can see photos from all over the world from amateur and/or professional photographers. Here’s two you should check out. The first one is called: Tnchick.com. Each Friday she has a theme and people from all over the country will put pictures on their blogs. Today it is “Old Fashioned” and I have these three pictures:
This is the old church in the town of Guadalupe, Arizona. This is a small town next to Tempe. I think this is the prettiest church around. I hope you do too.
Just to the north is the Double Butte Cemetery. What most people don’t know is that there is a cemetery on the east side of the highway. Only flat markers are allowed and the entire plot is gravel. Very Arizona. Looks like most of the people died around 1978.
Finally, back in Guadalupe
are two shrines on a hill. I took all three pictures with my camera phone, so sorry about the quality.
