Today I'm going to talk about the color pink and it's place in Tucson and probably the rest of the Southwest.
To many people the color pink is a perfectly acceptable color to paint a little girl's room. They will dress their little girls in it and it will be many of those little girls' favorite color for a long time. I know it was mine when I was little.
For those of us who grew up in a place other than the Southwestern US pink is NOT a color for buildings. No indeed, it is rare to see buildings of a light shade of pink and that building is an oddity. Here in Tucson and probably most of the Southwest pink is a perfectly acceptable color for a building. In fact, It's down right normal.
The following are a few photos I found on the Internet of some lovely pink buildings that are absolute landmarks here in Tucson.
The Benedictine sanctuary
Another view of the sanctuary
The multicolored building complex downtown (this color pink is actually not the norm)
And I would like to end with a picture I took of a pink flower on a plant that is found all over place here.
