Desert Rats : Sonoran Desert Arizona : USA


I seem to have given up shooting the photographs displayed here on Jezblog……. from now on only pictures by my friends :-))) hehehehe …….. here is a selfie shot by Alex Hannaford on his iPhone ……… featuring me and him as the intrepid desert reporting team down here in Arizona ………. this track we were driving on was consistently the worst road I have ever driven on anywhere …… We had to first dump the trailer then the other vehicle itself a hardcore 4 wheel drive thingy …….. but only the most capable vehicle and most ambitious driver could actually make it …….. more about all this when the actual story appears ….. then I will put up some of my pictures :-))) …… meantime we can rely on Alex ……… he reminded me of the great and very true line by The Libertines ‘There are fewer more distressing sights than that of an Englishman in a baseball cap‘ hehehehehe………

  • Wheres your hat Bro? Out there the heat will get to you and before you know it, your find yourself doing all sorts of strange things…Like praising the law enforcement officers of a certain State, and playing with the local Rattlesnakes… Hope you managed to reach the endof the road,so to speak.. Stay Safe Mate xx

  • Well we made it to the end of the road to complete the mission but then there was the slight problem of getting back down that road/donkey track in the dark :-/////// You will be glad to know I was wearing a spectacular hat …… a Kepi thingy one of those French Foreign legion things with a back of the neck sun protector flap ……. looks pretty silly but hey I’ve had it years its mega …… I only took it off to pour water on my head hehehehe ……. it was necessary bro :-))) No matter how hot it got I am unlikely to ever praise the Law enforcement community of Virginia or indeed begin Snake handling……. although I nearly went in for a bit of tranchelor spider handling ……. by accident I hasten to add …….. agggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhCheers bro Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

  • Great meeting you guys in Shot in the Dark Cafe earlier today in downtown Tucson. Also great that someone is working on the horrific tale of the militarized American border.While it would be better if the world were happy bunnies and dancing elves, I’m glad I met you because I’ve gone through your site and your photos are quite amazing. I especially loved the English Defense Pig and Nelson Mandela.

    Be well.

  • Hehehehe…….. Nice to hear from you Scott……. thanks for checking out the blog ……. nice to meet you earlier on :-)))))) …….. I love it that you especially liked the EDL pig …… I loved that image when I made it but the magazine that commissioned it miserably failed to run it ??????? :-))))))) On the other hand that Mandela pic has had a fair bit of usage :-))))))))Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXX

  • I meet folks who don’t like to take a photo if I am present thinking I should be doing it ……. but in this case I don’t like to write an essay about the Libertines in the presence of Alex Hannaford who’s selfie is pictured above …….. he is the writer of a book published by Random House …… ‘a biography of Pete Doherty ‘The Last of the Rock Romantics’ ‘ hehehehe…….. former music editor of London’s Evening Standard …… No wonder he can quote obscure bits of Libertines songs hehehehe…… Alex is surely the man for this essay ……..hehehehehehe………..Cheers bro Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXX
