a few years ago, the residents of the Maple-Ash neighborhood west of ASU commissioned an artist to craft irrigation standpipes into works of art.

and so, with this shot of tempe's new pedestrian bridge spanning the western end of the lake, my attempt to re-engage the tempe photo blog. i could say i was just released from prison...the reason i haven't posted in a year...the truth is not quite that exciting...
all four sections of the bridge are installed. the sprinkler system is sprinkling cool water onto the bladder dam. the bridge is beautiful, not quite ready for crossing yet, but the scoop is it will be available for short cutting the lake by October.
