Q: Why does JPGMAG drag the competitions on so much.

A: Do you know?

I learned a lot of things during my four days in Phoenix. Everyday the sky seems to be a different color blue. You need eyes on the back of your head when photographing cactus. But most importantly, there are plants that grow giant asparagus and mini pineapples. I just love Phoenix, it's a whole different wonderful world.
