Lake Vallecito

Yesterday was the first day of fall and the end of lazy summer days at the lake, picnics in the mountains and barbeques in the back yard. Time to pack up the toys of summer and get back to business.

Synchronized Swimming

This week my home town of Tucson, Arizona is hosting the U.S. Open Sychronized Swimming Competition, which¬†makes me think of this photo I¬†created of some wanna-be competitors out at Agua Caliente Park. They’ve got good form, sychronization & even a nice overall design element … on a 10.0 scoring scale I give them a 9.85!
