If you have been following us for awhile, you know I have a special place in my heart for desert abstracts. There is something about the forms, lines, shapes, and tones that get me hooked every time. When I am not having a particularly fruitful day photographing in the public gardens, I usually head over to the desert garden and without fail find a pick-me-up.
Peter and I went to check out the wildflowers at the LA Arboretum (yes it has gotten that desperate in Southern California, that to see wildflowers you have to go to a public garden). It was a tough shooting day, bright sun and wind…..the perfect shooting conditions actually for desert abstracts. So we walked out through the desert garden, and after 30 minutes of playtime, I left our little outing with a surge of energy and a big smile on my face.
