Gourds and hand-carved totems and faces and the U.S. Postal Service; mailbox as installation art, somewhere near midtown.

For all the boosters boasting of Tucson's financial turnaround, I walk these streets almost nightly and am quietly taken by the levels of abandonment—hollowed out storefronts, houses, gas stations, on major and minor streets. No craft cocktails on 22nd Street and Alvernon.

Lovely trailer court between Flower and Grant Rd. We turned pink and orange for a whole five minutes as the sun dropped.

This little photo series will feature random pics I take on long walks through Tucson—to sort of coincide with my column Tucson Salvage. It's called "Streets of this Town" and it begins today.

I met this guy Dan at Navajo near Stone Ave. He was selling is lovely blue-nose pit Romeo for $200. I didn't have $200.

2. Tasting Tucson 
For all my Tucson foodies, this is the account for you. From sweet to savory, from fast food to high end, Tasting Tucson has the posts to make your stomach grumble.

With the San Diego Comic Con now in full swing, the Range is bringing you a collection of photos from this summer's Phoenix Comicon, which drew at least 100,000 people and has become one of the biggest events in downtown Phoenix. (A hotel manager told us it was second only to the Super Bowl—and even the Super Bowl wasn't as big in some ways, since so many of the events were off in Glendale.)

Photos by Scott Smith, who had the most massive stash of comics I'd ever seen in my life when I met him in the sixth grade at Lineweaver Elementary.

By the way, if you want a chance to celebrate geek culture at a cooler time of the year, the Phoenix Comicon folks now have a fall event, the Phoenix Fan Fest, coming up Oct. 22-23. Learn all about it here.
