I wandered around the Frankfurt Botanical Garden with my close friends in July 2021. In the desert biome, I found compositions of shapes and lengths and textures that had to be captured. Variety is the spice of life, and also one of the most critical elements of a composition, along with balance, rhythm, unity, color, and emphasis. I poisoned my broken android phone/camera to compose a shot with as many cacti in as many angles and conglomerates as possible. Senita, Saguaro, Prickly Pear, Tree Cholla, Queen of the Night, one laid atop the other, some reaching into the air; some soft and bulbous, others making sharp angles across the composition.
