.. series taken December 8,2012--
... have been uploading series of this unusual formed giant Cactus before.. but.. in Summer... has long sword like 'leaves'.. with real sharp 'teeth'.. like a serrated knife.. within leaves has magnificent gorgeous green on green design... never have seen 'him' bloom... is growing on kind of 'ignored' spot.. next to a wall on a large unused mostly, parking space... regularly some of his mighty leaves get cut off.. which is most likely to prevent people get hurt.... if getting too close.. yes.. happens, that people do not pay attention.. In the hot of summer, those pieces, that are cut.. get burned.. dry out.. and textures as well as colors change.. on many my eyes find images in forms.. faces.. etc. etc.. today.. I stopped at 'his' side''and we 'talked'... I noticed and admired his beauty... intrigued my eyes and imagination.. and stayed with 'him' a while.. taking a photo shoot.. here are some of various angles.. light.. darks.. pictures.. I eliminated some details of grasses obscuring areas, I wanted visible...
