Agave Study

Uploaded: October 03, 2004 01:25:33


Close up of an agave that I have planted in my garden - I love the shape and structure of this plant.
The background is a tall, ribbed terracotta pot.
Hand held, nothing has been done to the original photo.

I love the color and the form of the agave and the texture of the pink pot, contrasts well with the agave, which is a favorite plant of mine... #818754

Hi Donna,
Firstly I am "downunder" also.
I love the simplistic nature of this shot. I actually thought that the background was corrugated iron at first. I really like the soft muted tones and the crop is just wonderful.
