Mary Ward, Phoenix Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement As you could probably guess, my "day job" is at night. I work the graveyard shift as police officer in the suburbs of Phoenix. While I work, I sometimes across things most people don't see, because being sane, they work during the day. Phoenix is hotter than hell most of the time, but it does make for some great sunrises, especially when there are overnight storms.Right now I'm having a lot of fun, learning every night about taking pictures without artificial light, and seeing what works and what doesn't. I'm still learning and working at finding new and unique images.
