The Arizona Ranger (self portrait)

The Arizona Ranger (self portrait)

Jim Sweazy, 2014
I have always followed the winds of fate, and tried to make do as I was swept along. Over the last four years I have volunteered as a Park Steward in the Phoenix Mountain Preserves, and I hope have found a new destiny. How to ensure a job as a Park Ranger? Well, I'm not going to sell my soul. But I did make a picture of myself as an old time Arizona Ranger, just to test the waters. If this works my next self portrait will be of me living it up, rich and successful. Nice clean garage full of new motorcycles, and cool old cars that never break down. Nice, huh?
