Lifesize Last Supper ~

Over the many years that I have been posting Tucson photos I have come back to this "Garden of Gethsemane" many times. Sometimes the scultpures of Jesus and the apostles are smashed and in disrepair; sometimes they look fantastic. This image is about as good as it gets! Whomever did the recent restoration did an awesome job. Want to know more about this oddity? Click here.

Dine in a Garden!

When you next visit the Tucson Botanical Gardens try to schedule your visit to include a meal at the charming Cafe Botanica. The menu, the service, and the ambiance will provide you with a wonderful experience!

Feeling a little peckish, are we?


This magnificent life-size vulture keeps an eye on things at Tucson's Tohono Chul Park. Created with recycled materials, it is the world of Kenyan sculptor, Kioko Mwitiki. I think it's particularly fun that the Park has strung fairy lights on this carnivore! (:

Sunset at Picture Rocks

THEN:
What a classic Western image ~ sunset at the corral. This unusual striped sky sunset photo was taken from a friend's property in the beautiful Picture Rocks area north and west of Tucson.

This sky-with-striped-light photo kind of reminds me of the Arizona flag!

More Trompe L'Oeil! Fun!


One of the many things I love about Tucson is the amount of public art that adds a note of fun to the landscape. Here is a wonderful mural that decorates Dale's Doors on S Kino Parkway. The figure in the doorway is NOT a ghost - it's Shana, the daughter of the store's owner, Leslie Bray. The artwork was done by "Murals by Jos."
