Several times a year the Green Valley (Arizona) Camera Club tours Tucson’s Barrio Viejo and adjacent areas. The area is always changing with old homes being renovated and new construction that looks old being built. The colors are amazing! Photographed with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ 50.

    Oh, cool effect

  • The big agave is no longer there so this scene doesn’t exist any more.

    Fabulous capture…so unique!

  • Thank you, Leilani. You can’t get this photograph anymore. The homeowners have removed the very large agave and replaced it with small ones. Not nearly so impressive.

    Exactly…a lack of appreciation for a mature plant/ life. How sad. This made it so unique of a capture.

  • Thank you, Leilani. It may be that this agave bloomed. Once it blooms, the plant dies.
