Tucson, Arizona Or St. Croix, US Virgin Islands

posted on 9th of december, 2007

I recently spent a month in Tucson waiting for a travel nursing job that never happened. Any one who works as a traveling nurse - avoid Nightingale Nurses LLC like the plague - they left me in the desert with no job and no pay! BUT! I did have a car an camera so went touring. Lots of cactus and sand. Quite by accident I found this beautiful oasis complete with palm trees, bull rushes and little ducks playing in the water. With the mountains in the background it was fantastic.

While this was a beautiful and very unexpected pleasure in the desert just outside Tucson, I have to admit, I'd much rather be home in the Caribbean on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, hanging out on the beach.

Small world!! I live near your found oasis in Tucson and have spent many hours there photographing families. I do however spend time on St. Thomas and St. John with a prior traveling nurse who went there and never left!! Looking forward to my next caribbean trip with new digital camera as I recently moved from film to digital.
Thanks for the refreshing memories of the islands through your portfolio!!

The eye of the camera enables me to look closely at the beauty of our environment and the diversity of the many cultures within it.
