SoCal Series: Joshua Tree

Considerations of possible titles for this post included: "Positive Negative Space," "Nature's Origami," and, from the Joshua Tree National Park Service Cholla Cactus Garden literature, "Self-Guiding Nature Trail." In the end, though, as is so often the case, the images best speak for themselves.

SoCal Series: Gracious Model


Whether it's sand dunes, the open road, great architecture or the beauty of... the principle of self-similarity is everywhere in evidence.

SoCal Series: Anza Borrego


Just returned from a trip to Southern California -

If it's contemplative space and cultural remove you seek, there's nothing like a trip to the desert in the middle of August. Anza Borrego can yield temperatures in excess of 124 F in the summer, limiting human contact to the hardy and the foolhardy. Plainly, the desert can really play with your sense of scale.

More desert posts ahead...
