Cactus, Front and Center


December 30, 2004 ~ Sabino Canyon, Arizona

They say you're not supposed to put your main subject smack-dab in the middle of the photo. I'm not sure why I did, and in fact it doesn't ruin this photo for me. I love the cactus, and I was proud of myself for doing so well on that long trail. And I wasn't sure how much farther we had to go. And the scenery was breathtaking. In other words, composing the photo was one of the last things on my mind.

Hey There! Hope you are doing better these days.
I've taken a couple of photography classes (back in the day) and I came to the conclusion that most photography rules were meant to be broken. It all depends on what your looking at. Every photo doesn't have to be a piece of art. Sometimes we are just taking snapshots. Right?
Anyway, that is one heck of a gnarled cactus against a shocking blue sky. Looks good to me!

Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
