The angled mirrored glass gives lots of different perspectives that vary with position.
looking up at the building captures me in the parking lot -- hard to do that with most building designs

Gallery in the Sun, a free art gallery found in north Tucson. On a visit this morning, just to try something different, I took all the pictures for this blog post from the ground. The picture above shows three of the many rooms in the gallery with a bench in the furthest room.
here is the back room with the bench on the left that was shown in the first picture
Looking up at one of the many fireplaces, interesting wall textures on the left and right.

this lizard was exceptionally patient while I took several pictures

A couple of weeks ago I drove past this telephone pole on Cortaro Farms Road. Needless to say, I had to pull a U turn to go back and check it out.
Its kind of unusual to see an owl perched on a telephone pole in the middle of the day, let alone canvasing the area like this. Nicely done!
It certainly makes for a distinctive marker for this side dirt road.
