Downtown Phoenix: Arizona Ghost Town or a Work in Progress?
Skyscrapers are scarce in downtown Phoenix because air-conditioning
can be cost-prohibitive.
A few weeks ago I had some time on my hands, so I went on a jaunt into the heart of Phoenix to take some photos of city architecture.

I remember being almost deafened by the silence of the city center, which appeared to be completely abandoned that Sunday afternoon. Except for a few tourists and pigeons, there wasn't a soul to be seen. I'm sure the situation is entirely different on a weekday, but still, the lack of activity seemed unnatural and a little bit eerie.
