spines and curves

‘Agave Americana’–not a cactus, though frequently referred to as one. Spines are sharp–very sharp. Speaking from experience. Photographed at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, an arboretum specializing in arid plants, world-wide, and located near Superior, Arizona–about an hour east of Phoenix.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

    The B&W is great. The lines and shadows are captured and really stand out nicely.
