Corner View - Cityscapes

Yuma, Arizona
My home is in the Southwest U.S. - in Arizona where it borders California and Mexico. It's not a big city, but we are about 3 hours from the capital of Arizona in one direction, and 3 hours from San Diego, California, in the opposite direction. We thrive on agriculture, the military (a Marine base and an Army base are located here), and tourism during the winter months.

While I will not have an opportunity to go out with my camera this week, I have a couple pictures to share that I took last year when I was lucky enough to get a ride on a Marine helicopter. And I can share with you the next best thing to a personal photo - a postcard. I hope you enjoy them and I can't wait to see all of your Corner views.
