Reflecting on Tucson

with a Side of Palm Trees

Tower and Palm Trees

The first time we wandered around downtown Tucson we were caught in the middle of a cloudburst. It was one of the two cloudy days we saw in Arizona. Two out of ten – not too bad!

We went back the morning we were flying back to Wisconsin. Sunday in downtown Tucson is, well, very quiet. But this time the sun was shining, and so I took advantage of that last bit of Arizona light for a few last photos.

This was a fun shot. I loved the reflections and distortions in the plate glass, but I also loved the added attraction (for me, anyway) of those lovely palm trees.

  1. I LOVE this shot, Bo. The way the building across the street, obviously lit by the sun, reflects in stairstep manner up the left side of the shaded building. Yeah, the palm trees rock this shot, like exclamation points!!!! I’m crazy about this image.

  3. Beautiful reflections here. I was surprised by the Palm trees. I’ve only been to Arizona once and it was when I was a kid.

  5. That is a very pretty shot, Bo. Despite the big building, those tall palms give it a relaxed feeling for me.
