Theme Day: Look Down


For today's theme of "Look Down", I found this photo that I took a few years ago while visiting an office high up in one of the towers at Central Avenue and Thomas Road.  You can see that the left turn arrows were on when I snapped the shot because there are cars making left turns off of Central Avenue onto Thomas Road in both directions.  On the right of the photo, just below half you can see a statue.  That is a huge statue paying tribute to the Navajo Code Talkers.  I featured that statue in my 11th post on this blog, way back in 2008.  In the upper left of this photo you see the base of another high-rise building which happens to be the building with the huge mural on the back of it.  I feature that mural back in September of 2014.  Before I moved two years ago, this used to be my neighborhood.  I've posted many photos from around this location in the past.

As most of you know, the first of every month is a theme day for all City Daily Photo Bloggers.  To see how other bloggers have depicted the "Look Down" subject, click here.

That's a super shot. And it brings back some memories. I used to work just south of Camelback on Central. And I worked part-time for awhile at Ken Flowers Store for Men on Camelback and Central.

Have a great weekend. Stay cool!

An amazing look from on high! I also like the news item that read today about your anniversary on the City Daily Photo site.

Nice one, Sharon! It is always fascinating to look down on a street scene like that.

What a great shot Sharon. I like looking down at the tops of the palm trees from this angle!

Looking down is sometimes as fun as looking up! Nice view from up there.
