Tumacácori, AZ. May, 1987

On my first visit to the Tucson home of my friends Simon and David, my hosts gave me the grand tour. Including a road trip to Tumacácori National Historical Park, about 45 minutes south of the city. There’s a new (1828) mission church that replaced an older (1691) mission church that had been established by the Jesuits at the site of an O’odham village, remnants of which are also part of the park’s preserve. But we were struck less with religious history and more by the stark desert colors and evidenced here by Simon’s posing in a somewhat Georgia O’Keefe homage.

  1. Now I know why you never see Simon and Rick Astley at the same place at the same time ....
