I know I haven’t been around this blog lately, although I have been having some new photography adventures. I love to travel, and a photography excursion is the perfect excuse to take a trip. However, in light of current events, I’ve had to curtail my traveling, so I’ve rediscovered the beauty in my own backyard.
I was born and raised in Arizona, and I’ve lived in the Sonoran Desert for most of my life. As a result, I’ve taken the native scenery for granted. In fact, I preferred being somewhere where it was, “green.’ I’d forgotten that the deserts, particularly those deserts in the southwestern United States, are unique. The saguaro cactus, which I see on a daily basis, is actually a rare plant. There are only two places in the entire world where saguaro cactus grows; Arizona, and Baja California.
In the meantime, it’s that lovely time of year when it’s not too hot, and it’s not too cold. It’s the perfect opportunity for me to go out and shoot the so-called, “mundane” scenery people in other places love to see.
