From the Convention Center you can see both St Mary's and the Arizona Center.
and random 'artwork' - sorry if you like this sort of thing.
Built in 1881, St Mary's is the oldest Catholic church in Phoenix, and it is still in use today.
A quiet moment.
The original doors to the church are behind the sculpture.
Across the street from the church is the Arizona Center with its modern look and fancy landscaping.
A nice, little oasis in the downtown.
And more fanciness. Quite the place, really. Not hustling and bustling as it can be at times, which probably makes it all the more inviting.
A look toward the heart of downtown.
