Tour de Tucson

Before I start, let me start off by saying that I've never made a photo thread before so criticisms are welcome. I'm a point and shoot kind of guy. It also should say that I didn't get to upload all of the pictures I took as my camera died.

Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures of a city that NEVER gets seen on SSC. TUCSON, ARIZONA!!!
:notacrook: :notacrook: :notacrook:

I covered 3 main sections on my 5 or so mile walk: The Sam Hughes Neighborhood, University of Arizona, 4th Ave, and downtown. Please to enjoy.

Starting off with Sam Hughes (directly east of the University of Arizona). Lots of interesting houses in this neighborhood. The architecture here is all over the place.















This is a very suspect sign.












On to the U of A


My favorite building in Tucson


Should be named 'Bareback Gym.' Lots of gay sex lurks in it's halls.




We ride bikes with no handlebars.




Student Union


Old Main






But what if it's 120 degrees outside?












Still not open...


But I'll continue straight. No left turns for me.


Soon to be modernized






Coolest house in all of Tucson


Downtown!


But first...4th Ave.








My favorite coffee shop..Revolutionary Grounds.


For no reason at all, a Smart car








Not a gay club




You can smell this place from 3 blocks away. I kid you not.




Yay for downtown






A crane flies in Tucson


Tucsonans




Gwar played here one night last month. Who followed them the following night? Hanson. :shrug:


Development in Tucson? No way.


Thursday night. Club Optimus. :upload_71700:


Rehab




Crackheads, tramps, and thieves wander here






O0o0o..buildings.


If you remember The Great Blue Bathroom Tile Shortage of '62, this guy was the cause of it.




Ahhh..history










And I'm done. Asta pasta.

Anywho, here are the remainder of the pictures that I took yesterday.







Ocotillo. This thing is like the Devil's Plant. A very sinister looking thing. Covered in 4 in long thorns.


I actually love these walls. There are a lot of them in Tucson.






I don't know what these things are.


Hi2u


There they are again


The back (front) of Old Main


The saguaro flower






Starbucks are actually rare in Tucson


Really?




Kids are terrified of this thing. And they have every reason to be.




These are actually really cool


This will be a freeway type thing someday


Fantasy


Reality




Wtf?


Take THAT Phoenix


Ok...NOW I'm done. Hope you enjoyed.

Nice pics! You're right, not too many threads of Tucson. Thanks for taking me back to when I used to live in Tucson and went to the University of Arizona (though I don't recognize alot of it now, it's changed so much). Tucson has alot of potential, I hope it realizes some of it in the future...
