We had have a short break with Jason, when we went back to Phoenix from the Grand canyon.
Flagstaff is a city located in northern Arizona, in the southwestern United States. In 2012, the city's estimated population was 67,468. The combined metropolitan area of Flagstaff has an estimated population 134,421. It is the county seat of Coconino County. The city is named after a Ponderosa Pine flagpole made by a scouting party from Boston (known as the "Second Boston Party") to celebrate the United States Centennial on July 4, 1876.
Flagstaff lies near the southwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau, along the western side of the largest contiguous Ponderosa Pine forest in the continental United States. Flagstaff is located adjacent to Mount Elden, just south of the San Francisco Peaks, the highest mountain range in the state of Arizona. Humphreys Peak, the highest point in Arizona at 12,633 feet (3,851 m), is located about 10 miles (16 km) north of Flagstaff in Kachina Peaks Wilderness.
Flagstaff's early economy was based on the lumber, railroad, and ranching industries. Today, the city remains an important distribution hub for companies such as Nestlé Purina PetCare and Walgreens, and is home to Lowell Observatory, The U.S. Naval Observatory, the United States Geological Survey Flagstaff Station, and Northern Arizona University. Flagstaff has a strong tourism sector, due to its proximity to Grand Canyon National Park, Oak Creek Canyon, the Arizona Snowbowl, Meteor Crater, and historic Route 66. The city is also a center for medical device manufacturing, since Flagstaff is home to W. L. Gore and Associates.

Hello Serghei, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with the car, pretty interesting tree and clock tower, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Like the wonderful mix of old church and shining modern car in the composition. They contrast each other well in terms of color and texture. The clock tower presents nice contrast with the superb blue sky. Good one with vibrant colors and great luminosity. Thanks for sharing.

Ha! Ha! Serge, before I read your notes, I was searching the photograph for a flagpole!
I like how you have included the car in the f/g; it sort of symbolises that Flagstaff is quite a racy place! It gives depth the building, which is sharply exposed, with fine details of the stonework and decorations.
I see the date is carved over the door but just covered by the branch of the tree.
Have a great w/e,
You had quite an extensive exploration with Jason.

Excellent arrangement, nice combination of modern technique with old architecture. The view up is perfect, creating superb contrast against blue sky.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.

Cette voiture n'est pas indiquée si on veut passer inaperçu.Mais ses lignes sont belles et elle cadre bien devant cette belle église de pierres. Le ciel très bleu est un superbe contraste.

Another simple but attractive composition of a well spotted view with distinct features. A clock-tower, a parked car, a tree. Strong and interesting contrasts of colours. I like it.

Impressive car and building. As for the car, if I could afford one of those, I am not sure this would be choice of colour, but one thing it does well is create a very striking scene. I don't think I have ever seen a combination of this green with vivid red and blue, and it looks amazing. This image just jumps out of the gallery! Very nicely seen.

Interesting combination of the classical government building (?) red block architecture tower with a green Mustang, which to many of us westerners represents trips on the Route 66 connecting California with the mid west U.S.
Thanks for sharing,

Ahh yes, I remember this vividly...and "vivid" is the key word, taking into consideration this chemical green car. :) This brings back good memories, I have a picture of you taking this picture. :) I never quite saw a finished product like this, and your keen awareness has put together an interesting mix of color and element. The rich blue sky sure makes the stonework and car stand out in contrast. As Ray mentioned, this conveys a nice, modern slice from the famous Route 66. Bright and beautiful, time for a ride! Have a great day ahead partner. Take it easy.
Cheers from rainy Phoenix,

To be honest,I can´t decide what I like more-the building with its beautiful,red brick architecture or this "beautiful beast" in the FG.
Both are just magnificent and thanks to so strong contrasting colors also very attracitve and complementing each other subjects.
Well seen and executed!
Have a nice sunday
