[August 11, 2010, Arizona Biltmore, Scottsdale, Arizona]

I “met” Mary at JPG a year ago. She uploaded a shot of Italy’s Amalfi Coast that I liked very much, and I told her so in the “comment” section under her photo. She returned the favor, and soon after that we were JPG “contacts.” Since that time, we have stayed in touch through JPG.

When I wrote Mary a month ago that I might be in the Phoenix area in August, we made arrangements to meet, and we decided to meet at Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece, the Arizona Biltmore. I had stayed there several times on business trips and it was just a few minutes from Mary’s home, so it was the ideal location.

We met this morning and spent two hours enjoying a cold drink, great conversation, and photography. (Mary shoots with a very impressive looking Nikon!) We had a wonderful time.

Thank you, Mary!

I have linked Mary’s page. Please have a look. Mary has been traveling for a month, but she promises to get active again this week. I am also linking a page to the Arizona Biltmore, if you have an interest. It is quite a resort.

I have met some wonderful folks at JPG.

(My thanks also to the JPG staff for the great site and for encouraging the JPG meet-ups!)

    Thank you, everyone, for your kind remarks. Lady D, I bought that bolo tie at "The Cradleboard" in West Yellowstone, Montana, about five years ago. It is a unique piece, signed by the artist, and accompanied by papers. (It is "AKC" registered, LOL.) Although it depicts a Northern Plains Indian in a full war bonnet, the artist is either a member of the Navajo or Zuni Nation, where so much Indian jewelry is made. It is sterling, Thanks again, everyone. .
