One From the Playground

I snapped this photo while attending a concert by the band Jayden's Playground. My niece, lead vocalist and on keys, can truly draw a crowd into the music and leave them with an incredibly lasting impression of the band's quality and her ethereal voice.

You can check out the band at

or search for Jayden's Playground on the MySpace home page!

San Xavier Mission : Prayer of Faith

Anyone visiting Tucson should not miss the opportunity to visit one of the most decorated missions in the U.S.

Nicknamed the "White Dove of the Desert" because of its bright white external facade, the San Xavier del Bac south of Tucson, Arizona is well known for the incredible detail of sculptures on its walls.

It's nothing less than a photographer's dream with all the brilliant colors scattered throughout. Just don't forget to bring your tripod, the sanctuary is generally lit with diffused sunlight and candles only. Oh, and if you have an ultra wide or fisheye lens, bring that too. You're gonna need it to capture more of the details in such a small space.
