Viewing the Valley: Phoenix in Pics

avatarthumbnail.jpgGiving credit where credit is due, I’ve essentially lifted an idea from my good friend Ines in an effort to help give folks a better feel for the Valley.

Aside from being a damn good agent in Miami, Ines is responsible for the website MiamismPix, which is a photo blog of the Miami area. The idea is brilliant for its simplicity … she takes photos from her iPhone and they post to the site. Scan through the archives and it’s hard not to feel the humidity see the beauty.

My own attempt to do the same thing for Phoenix launched yesterday. There only are a handful of photos so far but the plan is to post at least one a day, maybe more on those days like last week where I’m travelling from the Biltmore to Buckeye in the same day.

The only rule is all of the photos are going to be taken with my Samsung Instinct (I’m still futilely resisting the iPhone revolution) and that’s really the key. One of the reasons that I never have had a lot of pictures here is I don’t always have my camera on me and then I tend to forget to download and blah blah blah.

With the new website there are no excuses.

So while you’re waiting for the usual market stats (coming later today) I hope you’ll take a moment to see the beginnings of the Phoenix in Pix website.

What I hope to discover is that in trying to allow you to see the Valley, I’ll open my own eyes to some of the things you take for granted after 32 years.

  • My friend has already been doing this for Portland. His site PDXPhotoBlog is pretty cool and there have been some very funny pictures that have made their way into the blog. All of our agents at the office are welcome to post to it, although only a couple of people have actually submitted anything yet.

  • For the record……humidity is great for your skin 🙂 I wish I could take the credit for the photoblog though – a few had them before me (tboard, gotbob, twitterzilla, respres). But thanks for the kudos….maybe you like mine better or it’s the “cupholders” that come with it 🙂
