Many thanks to Belita for hosting this week. An intriguing theme, that could be interpreted many different ways!! I think that what makes a good photographer is recording the 'things they saw' where others may not have even seen things. I think that's true of all the members of this group. My entry is an example of that. When visiting the Grand Canyon most folks spend all their time looking at the spectacle of the canyon itself, and in so doing may miss other things, if only they had looked. All my shots were taken within a few yards of the canyon rim.
1) A traditional Hopi communal house.
2) A piece of petrified wood.
3) A ground-squirrel.
4) A traditional smokehouse chimney.
