Every time I photograph the barrios of Tucson, Arizona, USA, I see something different or the same thing from a different angle. This photographed was taken in early April, 2010 and the mesquite tree was just starting to green up. The light was hitting it perfectly to set it off against the background of the colorful house.

Photographed with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 with a couple of PS Elements filters put on top.

    stunning colours and framing.. love it.

  • Thank you so much, Dorit. I have to admit that I did a little “digital tree trimming” to tidy up the tree. Mesquites like to grow all over the place.
