Downtown Walk

When Hubby and I were downtown a couple of weeks ago, we took a little detour off Main Street to discover a whole new world of fun things to see.  Downtown Tucson has some very cool old buildings, of which I plan to photograph some day when I have more time (and it’s cooler weather).

One of the streets had this tower with a prickly pear cactus planted in the bowl at the top.  I added a crosshatch illustration effect just for the fun of it because it had just rained and the street was still wet.  I also like what this effect did to the sky.

Have a pleasant weekend.  Namaste’

The Bloom of Evolution

Still not feeling well today so I didn’t know what I was going to photograph until I saw this prickly pear cactus at the side of our house.  They are beginning to bloom in their rich yellows, peaches and hot pinks now.  I was lucky enough to find this one in peach that shows the evolution of the blooms.  The Universe is so obliging.  I have to admit that doing this 366 project has made me more aware of so many things that I used to take for granted and for that I am so grateful.

Enjoy!  Namaste’
