Marilyn found them. An entire folder of my pictures from January 2016 in Arizona. Apparently, they were never opened since she downloaded them.

Nice surprise. She fixed them up and here they are. Hope you like them!


A cactus sunset – near the Superstitions

Author: Garry Armstrong

As a reporter for Channel 7 in Boston for 31 years, I was witness to most of the major events affecting the region. I met a lot of people ... politicians, actors, moguls, criminals and many regular folks caught up in extraordinary situations. Sometimes, I write about the people I've met and places I've been. Sometimes, I write about life, my family, my dogs and me. Or what might otherwise be called Life.


    1. Leslie, I remember seeing and taking the shot, thinking “The LAST SUNSET” (’59/UI) Kirk Douglas, Rock Hudson, Dorothy Malone, Carol Lynley, Joseph Cotten, Neville Brand, Jack Elam.
      Robert Aldrich directed..3 years before he did “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?”

      Kirk was the classic, singing Irish villain, Brendan O’Malley, dressed all in black. He fell in love with his daughter, Carol Lynley. Rock was Rock the hero, Dana Stribling. Kirk carried a hidden derringer in his belt. The last sunset shootout was a beaut. Great crane pull out shot at the end.

      How do I remember all this stuff from a movie I first saw almost half a century ago?

  1. Reminds me of a couple winter trips we made to Arizona… Last a couple years ago when we flew into Phoenix to visit friends and then took a one day road trip up to the rim , around and down when I got my little kokopelli painting on rock that lives in my kitchen., the other when we went to New Mexico and drove across to Arizona and visited the petrified forest and adjacent parks..

    1. We took one trip to Arizona in the summer — which was an ecological experience — and the other in January, two years ago. I loved being there. I think it’s too dry for me all the time, but my body really appreciated the dry, warm air. My back hurt less and my sinuses finally dried up. But we northeasters tend to need to be near water. I need an occasional ocean breeze 🙂

    1. It was a ghost town/gold mine/tourist joint. But it had an incredible view of the Superstitions, too … You know, I have a genuine fondness for tourist joints. They have places to eat, convenient places to buy stuff. Parking. Shade. Places to take pictures and chairs for the less hardy amongst us. And toilets. Which can be very hard to find, out there in the wilds. Just saying.
