Artist's Description

IN MY FISHING PARTNER’S FRONT YARD, IN VALLEJO CALIFORNIA, RESTS AN OLD TOILET THAT HAS BEEN TURNED INTO A PLANTER. WELL, THE FOLIAGE OF CHOICE WAS THIS CACTUS. I TRIED TO MAKE THE SHOT LOOK APPEALING WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING TO IT IN THE DIGITAL DARKROOM. I WASN’T ABLE TO MAKE IT INTERESTING ENOUGH TO SHOW IT STRAIGHT FROM THE CAMERA, SO I DECIDED TO ENHANCE THE IMAGE. I FINALLY MADE IT LOOK MORE INTERESTING AND I CALL THE IMAGE “DRAGON TAILS IN THE JOHN”. MY FRIENDS FRONT YARD IS A MIX OF FLOWERS AND PIECES OF OLD FARM IMPLIMENTS. IT ACTUALLY WORKS THE WAY HE HAS IT PUT TOGETHER. I WAS GOING TO SAY ARRANGED, BUT NOTHING HAS ACTUALLY BEEN ARRANGED IN HIS YARD, JUST PUT HERE AND THERE. BUT, IT WORKS, SO THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS. I KNOW LOTS OF PEOPLE THAT WANT THAT EASY TO MANAGE YARD, BUT BY THE TIME ALL THE PLANTS ARE IN PLACE, THE YARD IS ANYTHING BUT LOW MAINTENANCE. I LIKE MY YARD, THE SPRINKLER SYSTEM DOES IT’S JOB AND ALL I HAVE TO DO IS MOW THE GRASS. SO ANYWAY, I MANAGED TO GET THIS SHOT THE WAY I LIKED IT AND IT LOOKED LIKE DRAGON TAILS TO ME, SO THAT’S HOW IT GOT IT’S NAME. I USED MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D AND MY QUANTARAY 70-300MM TELEPHOTO AF MACRO LENS TO GET THIS SHOT.
