Photographer's Note

An old Spanish style church (St. Augustine Cathedral), in downtown Tucson, Arizona. I've used a parking meter as a tripod. I got some strange looks from passers by, for doing so, but I was determined to get this sharp!

"Although the imposing white-and-beige Spanish-style building was modeled after the Cathedral of Queretaro in Mexico, a number of its details reflect the desert setting: above the entryway, next to a bronze statue of St. Augustine, are carvings of local desert scenes with saguaro cacti, yucca, and prickly pears. For a distinctly Southwestern experience, attend the mariachi mass celebrated Sunday at 8 AM." (Fodor's)
