It was a bit cold with a slight breeze. The cold was moving through the valley of the sun today. I decide to walk around Sahuaro Ranch Park again but I near closer my mind decided to visit Glendale Library. The library is next to the park. I found many different kinds of cactus flowers. I will have to spend more time here later so that I can label and shoot all the difference kinds of cactus. I plan to build a stronger raw image database for future stock photograph.
I’ve edited three so far and would like to share those with you today on Christmas. I understand this has nothing to do with Santa. I’m writing about this because the family and woman whom I’ve truly loved; she no longer wishes me to be apart in her life. Photography seems to provide me the venue which support and comfort me in gaining understanding in what is expected of me in God’s plan. I wish events and attitudes could have been differ. but as they say in AA Alcoholic Anonymous “God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference . Living one day at a time”. No am not an alcoholic, but living and striving to understand a spiritual process base upon love. I’m trying to heal the best I can while still living out of my suitcase during the holidays.
The first image is a head shot of a peacock whom sometimes wonder from the park to the library area.
The next picture are dead leaves hanging from a branch of a tree which grows in Arizona called Arizona Rosewood (Vauquwlinia Californica) a member of the Rosaceae Family. I love how the details in the dead leaves before they fall to the ground.
The Cow Horns is the next image. It’s also known by (Euphorbia Grandicornis) and is the member of the Euphorbiaeae Family. The angle is unique. Hope you love the image.
