My housemate and photographic mentor Lizz is spending a few weeks in the Desert Southwest, chasing the Spring wildflower blooms. Rumor has it she’s meeting with some success, and frankly, I’m a little jealous – my partial unemployment (a seasonal routine in my line of work) keeps me here but not fully occupied.
And there are only so many photos I can take of my little piece of the world in any given season before I’m ready for a change.
So, in solidarity with Lizz (and to keep from going nuts,) I bought a little “red capped” cactus into which I can disappear whenever I want to feel like I’m in the desert.
Like right now, for instance:
You might be saying, “Hey, that’s not RED, it’s ORANGE!!” To which I say, “Yup.” It was the only one among the specimens I saw which wasn’t red, and being the person I am, I dug it.
And until Lizz gets back with her photo-booty, it’ll have to do.
