I was in the downtown Tucson area and thought I'd drive around and look at some of the houses in the Barrio Viejo, an area that's been around since the 1800s. I've been down here before to take pictures, in the pockets of the neighborhood that have all these cool colored houses, most of them beautifully restored. I'm not a fan of the southwestern architecture, but I do like the colorful houses.
If you enlarge this one, you can see a metal spider climbing on the wall just above the garage, near the roofline.
A little seating area to use while passing time chit-chatting with the neighbors.
This purple is so deep and so beautiful, but not gaudy. I'd paint my house this color in a heartbeat! It's one of my favorites on the block.
Although not an original structure, the people who own the home below built it in the tradition of the original homes in the area and have had a hand in helping to revitalize the neighborhood.
I love the lime green and yellow.
So bright, so cheery!
