A Tucson High student’s senior pictures are going viral. Timea Post, 17, said the pictures were intended to capture the ‘beauty of Tucson’.
The locations of the snaps include an Eegee’s, a Mattress Firm, a Bookman’s and a road construction site.
“We were thinking about how on twitter, they always make fun of Mattress Firms and construction,” said Post. “And then Bookman's and Eegee’s are also iconic Tucson things.”
The pictures have been liked and re-tweeted from Post’s twitter account thousands of times. The pics have also been featured on Buzzfeed and Teen Vogue.
“All the re-tweets and the likes, that was insane. And then Buzzfeed messaged me,” said Post. “It was crazy and ever since that article has been released it's been insane.”
Post, a Southern Arizona native, said she knew Tucsonans would get the pics. But she never expected people from around the country would respond in this way.
“I didn't think they would think that it's funny,” she said. “I mean they probably don't understand why it's funny- but I just think it's great.”
Tucson’s newest internet celebrity plans to stay in the Old Pueblo after graduation and will attend Pima Community College.
