Tucson Travels = What I saw on my vacation – Weekly Photo Challenge

Tucson has incredible light, sunsets and just about anything that is not northern forests. I really like the desert. My companions said they liked it, but could not live where there were no big trees. I get that. The desert has an appeal and a mystery for me.

Since my camera was croaked, I have been taking pictures with my phone…bouncing along in the car on the highway was a real challenge of photographic effort. It makes me laugh to think of it. The outcome was a lighter attitude about making  pictures, which has carried over now that I am back in the snow and the cold.

Here’s some shots that are more playful from my travels in an around Tucson.

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge oddly seems to fit an Out of this world with its contrasting views.

    Glad you liked Tucson (I live here). It’s cool seeing what someone who is visiting finds interesting.

  3. I just love the pomegranate! It’s been decades since I traveled around that area and you caught so much. I remember a lot of desolation. And houses with chickens in the front yard!

    Tuscon has a lot of character.
    The desolation is actually breath-taking.
