I'll hunt around on the internet, & see if I can find more info, on this imposing domed building, in central Tucson. Found it.
This is El Presidio Park, & the domed building in the bg, is the Pima County Courthouse.
"This courthouse, designed in 1928 in Spanish Colonial style, is a nice architectural homage to Tucson's Spanish-Mexican past. If you are downtown, take your time to stroll around and view the building from all sides. Explore the courtyard and its arcade, created by arches and columns, or sit by the cool water of the fountain. The best part of the complex is actually its glittering tiled dome in vaguely Moorish style. Finally, walk upstairs (security check required) to see the only remaining piece of the original Presidio walls displayed there. Access is free during office hours."

Well chosen point of view to capture square and Courthouse as well as including the interesting sculptured block in the foreground. I like the soft light and colours. Very good clarity.

belle vue de cet endroit, paradoxalement presque désert. J'aime beaucoup les couleurs douces, les lumières par contre sont un rien trop fortes.
Excellent POV et cadrage.
All the best.

The trees are framing well the Pima county court house. The presence of the person has an effect of scale. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the building. The intensity of the light brings out the colors of the scene. Have a nice day.

Beautiful tropical scene with the lovely Spanish Colonial style architecture standing out brilliantly against the lovely blue sky and wispy clouds.

Nice pink Pima County Courthouse installed with big green dome, lovely park with variety type of plants, I like the artistic wall in the garden too, good pov to frame it all, thanks for sharing.

It's a very pretty place, with the pink of the soil and walls making a nice contrast with the green of the plants and the blue of the sky.
While in general it has a very charming Spanish / colonial appeal, I find very intriguing that tiled dome, whose shape matches Spain, but maybe not the tiles, which evoke Middle East or Central Asia.

Bella Piazza environment similar to Europe but a little lonely, only the frequent rider.
Very beautiful dome that protrudes above the building and wonderful light and colors.
