… one of my favorite flowers, a daffodil that I shot last year in Filoli Gardens in the Bay area … the original image I finished with some painterly type work and decided that I like it better as a straight shot with white vignetting to finish it off. Reason for the redo is that I want to use this as an 11 x 17 wood print in the kitchen where I used to have the bulletin board (now in the office) so I did the rework and uploaded the image and ordered the print. I think it will be pretty cool with the wood grain coming through the image and will soon find out. A little late finishing it so I just down sized the image, added a border and special effects and here it is. If you like this photo it is uploaded and can be ordered in any size up to 20 x 30 inches and on Kodak Pro Luster paper, metal, canvas or wood.

Water for the development raises significant issues in both the Prescott Active Management Area (AMA) and the Big Chino Valley.

Sedona City Talk: John Currivan, City Councilor

City of Sedona ArizonaSedona AZ (September 28, 2017) – As most Sedona residents know, our long-awaited traffic study is nearing completion. Rather than focus on suggestions that have already been the subject of extended discussion, such as improvements in Uptown and at the Y, I would like to turn to two areas that need special attention because they extend beyond our city limits:  Route 89A through Oak Creek Canyon, and Route 179 through the Village of Oak Creek.

When I ran for office last year, I stressed that long-term solutions to Sedona’s traffic congestion would have to look beyond the city’s borders. Skeptics insisted that solutions north and south of the city would be impossible because of the number of governmental bodies that would have to be involved. I believed that we needed to try.
