Things Were Looking Up

Things Were Looking Up

The Westward Ho in downtown Phoenix. A familiar local landmark originally opened as a Hotel in 1928. The tower mast added in 1949 to broadcast Phoenix's first television station. These days, after undergoing restoration, the building serves as residential space.

I've always loved the architecture and have shot it quite a few times. This particular one taken of its backside after wandering down a dodgy alley on a photo walk in 100° heat.

Fireworks, Right?

We moved into Phoenix proper a couple years back. It's a pretty big City. We live in a nice community but it's somewhat adjacent to "a bad part". So of an evening it's not unheard of to be watching TV and hear a bang.

To which we look at each other and go "firework or shotgun?". Americana.
