spines and curves

spines and curves

‘Agave Americana’–not a cactus, though frequently referred to as one. Spines are sharp–very sharp. Speaking from experience. Photographed at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, an arboretum specializing in arid plants, world-wide, and located near Superior, Arizona–about an hour east of Phoenix.

    The processing treatment you selected gives the plant a very graphic look; a look I really like!

    The B&W is great. The lines and shadows are captured and really stand out nicely.
