Photographing Desert Textures

Yesterday, on a whim, my mom and I took a quick visit to the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, AZ.  I wanted to do my own little day study of photographing textures. I was originally just going to photograph desert life in the backyard, but decided the gardens would be much more inspiring!

Please enjoy some of my favorite photographs:

I have a feeling that if I go back in one or two weeks all of the cactus flowers will be in full bloom! Can't wait.
