downtown tucson: a photo walk



this past march, we participated in a photo walk of downtown tucson. it's something i've always wanted to do -- walk around my town and, with no agenda and no list of things to do, take pictures. i see people hosting and taking part in instameets and photowalks, and i'm so jealous. but like anything without a specific purpose, it's hard to do, hard to find the time, hard to make it a priority.

 


 







this photowalk, organized by why i love where i live, focused on the following local shops, businesses, and restaurants in the downtown area: 
  • fed by threads, a clothing shop that sells american-made items and helps provide meals at food banks for each item sold 
  • salon salon, a hair and lifestyle shop located in tucson's historic train station
  • connect coworking, a shared office space that inspires collaboration and innovation
  • hotel congress, steeped in history, it's the heart of historical tucson, and it boasts a cafe, tavern, events venue, and club
  • maynards market, a delicious restaurant and market that hosts numerous events to promote local tucson flavor and flair
