The Corner Of Arizona And Sixth

The Corner Of Arizona And Sixth

Tucson has a disappointing lack of respect for its history. Small enclaves of restoration and gentrification exist, but large swaths of our history have been bulldozed for a convention center, cheaply made highrise dorms, and student housing disguised as six bedroom houses with four car garages. This building will doubtless be gone soon, solid brick construction replaced by cheap stick and stucco.

Walking to have coffee at a friend’s house when this caught my eye.  A round adobe window is rare in itself, but the colors in the plaid sheet set it off perfectly for the perfect storm of color, texture, and form.
