Cactus Pottery – Art in Tubac Arizona

Tubac Arizona

Another Memoir Container (in Metaphor)

Here is another photograph of pottery to announce another article on collecting memories and assembling them into a multimedia memoir.

This cactus pottery was seen on an adobe window in the town of Tubac, a few miles south of Tucson. I love how it appears to have a palo verde tree growing out of the container.

Rather metaphorical, like memoirs that can grow from writing just a few words every day.

    Love that photo! Simply lovely and great composition. I’ve clicked over and looked over the article at Memoir Space. I’m interested in something like this. I bookmarked this and will read more tomorrow morning when I am rested.

  13. Bo,

    I don’t know how I missed this one… it’s probably because even in the 21st century, we’re still stuck on dial-up and I didn’t wait for your entire front page to load.

    It’s a classic composition and I love the soft focus of the background. Ya gotta love the colors of the southwest. ๐Ÿ™‚
