Wind chimes

It's been stormy in the evenings here, due to our monsoon season - makes for hot, humid days, but the storms are fun. These windchimes hang outside my kids' Grandmother's house, with the monsoon clouds building in the background

ASU Research park

I pass by this entrance once in awhile, and I think it's pretty - it's home to research and development companies, and corporate headquarters; there's also a nice lake to walk around

Alien landing pad?

No, it's just part of the water park at the Tempe Town Lake - it's probably the best spray pad in town but can get a little crowded.

I'm not sure what made these palm trees grow in a curve, but if you look closely, you'll see that they are needing support to stay up
