Downtown from Stone

Looking towards the south side of downtown Tucson from Stone, taken in the evening.  Somehow this view seems oddly intimate to me, like approaching a restaurant from a back alley.  I like the signs advertising  boxing, a car show , something called an “Asian  spectacular”, events being held at the Casino del Sol.  The AVA Amphitheater is on the Pasqua Yaqui reservation near Tucson and is associated the gaming casino.

How Many Sculptors Does It Take…….

This and some other photos I’ll be putting up this week are from a walk one evening on Stone Avenue just south of downtown Tucson. I sometimes ponder the value of doing this blog but then there is just so much to celebrate in Tucson, like this odd, eclectic and semi-funky neighborhood on Stone.


The title is of course a play on lightbulb jokes. I don’t know how international they are. Here’s a sampling for dog lovers:

Q How many dogs does it take to change a lightbulb?

Border Collie: Just one. And then I’ll replace any wiring that’s not up to code.

Rottweiler: Make me.

Labrador Retriver: Oh, me, me!!!! Pleeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I ? Please, please, please!

German Shepherd: I’ll change it as soon as I lead these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven’t missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.

Jack Russell Terrier: I’ll just pop it in while I’m bouncing off the walls and furniture.
