Today I took this beautiful Great Horned Owl out for a test flight. After it landed, I was heading over to pick it up and I saw a bird swoop down out of the corner of my eye. It was a Peregrine Falcon! The falcon dove twice and then circled as I got the owl off the ground. Luckily everyone’s ok. .
Have you ever thought about volunteering at Wildlife Rehabilitation in Northwest Tucson? There will be an orientation on Sunday November 18th for new volunteers. Message them on their Facebook page for more information. Volunteers need to be available for one 3-4 hour shift a week.
Whenever we are in Tucson, we try to make time for a meal at el Charro. Their carne seca is a house specialty which is seasoned beef that is dried in metal cages up on the roof of the restaurant. The meat is delicious in their sour cream enchiladas or just on a plate with beans, rice and tortillas on the side. They have three locations and we usually go to the downtown location near U of A, but we also have gone to the location on the NW side of town a few times. We have been going here ever since we lived in Tucson 20 years ago and still love it.
Tip: Make a reservation if you know ahead of time that you will be going. They don’t take same day reservations, so plan ahead! #tucsonfood#visittucson#carneseca#roadtrip#thistraveltribeaz
Here a portrait of #jonathan_rothschild (Tucson Governor) giving a speech in a charity cause event for the families in need for their children. I had done some photographs from the front with a soft flash to get the safe shots and as I was getting behind so I wouldn’t be in between the audience, I saw this photo and I had to take, take it with available light to capture it as I saw it. To me this photos speaks a lot and I think is a representation of a fraction of the responsibility Jonathan deals with every day. It is always a pleasure to photograph him.

Christmas is in the air! I’m getting so excited! I absolutely LOVE Christmas and all holidays for that matter. I am planning on putting up my tree early this year because what is too early?! I’m really digging the minimalist Christmas trees as is in this photo from @pinterest. I think they look lovely! Get ready for tomorrow! First release of the christmas earrings collection. I kept it simple. I’m going to be removing some collections from my website to make room for the new ones. Happy Monday! ❤️🎄
Yesterday was free admission to national parks so we took advantage of that and asked @samr7 to take our Christmas card photos at Saguaro National Park. I couldn't help but also bring my camera along for the scenery.
