Burlap Elephant

Burlap Elephant

I made it back home from Arizona today. I had some meetings in Phoenix that I was very apprehensive about, but it turned out to be quite productive. I am not at liberty to talk about details, as these are private gigs scheduled throughout the next year. But let’s just say, I’ll be busy.

Alou picked me up at the airport and we stopped off at Pulau Tikus for some Char Kway Teow and Laksa. On the way into the food court I saw this man selling mango on a burlap sack. He was just packing up. I whipped out my iPhone and shot this. I could not have staged a better still life.

Good to be home for awhile.

    Great shot… I need an iphone for moments like this.

    Glad your trip went well. I see you have the iPhone 3GS now?

    I'm curious as to what you thought of Phoenix, I've been here for 15 years myself, I like it but wish it was a littler greener. 🙂 Either way you got some good weather, unseasonably cool this for this time of year.

    And speaking of iPhone, has anyone tried the Hipstamatic App yet? Great little app, takes me back to my first years of photography, when I knew nothing and didn't care, just loved taking pictures!

    You need to tell me when you return to the states. I've got a fridge full of ice cold Shiner Bock just waiting. 🙂

    I lived in Mesa years back, just after I got married. I have had some family in the Valley for the past 30 years; parents, brother or sister. I really like PHX other than it is killer hot for most of the year.



  1. Сергей - Мда.... С одной стороны сообщение интересное, но с другой очень мало фактических обоснований......
