Weekend Reflections - Downtown Tucson

Because of all the buildings with glass windows, downtown is a great place to see reflections. Chris and I were there last Sunday to watch a running event. Maybe we'll go back again someday and spend more time just leisurely walking around.

It was fun looking for distorted lines and abstract designs in reflections:





And there were palm trees galore!


This is my fourth Downtown Tucson post from that whirlwind visit and I still have at least three more to go.

Weekend Reflections is a meme for any type of reflection photos. To participate or see more reflective posts, visit James at Newtown Area Photo.

I really like these reflections. They remind me of abstract art. The lines, shapes and color are really cool. The palm trees add a nice touch too.

The reflections are great, I love all the palm trees. The lines and colors are wonderful, you captured them beautifully.

The first few are very artistic.... James is so right about how they look 'abstact'...

The reflection is somehow similar to clouds, they appear in very different patterns.

Interesting.

The reflections of the trees looks like, as though the trees are inside the building. With contrasting different backgrounds the designs looks nice.

With your reflection series, I can visualize how downtown Tucson looks like. I work in downtown LA, so I relate to the tall buildings!

Great photos, Diane, and I don't blame for wanting to go back. There's a lot to explore!
