I had taken a quick snap of the cacti previously—in passing as it were–and decided to have another more considered go. I was intrigued by it, and I wanted to see if it would work in a large format, and if so, what angle would be best. I reckon that I will photograph this cacti many times from lots of different aspects.
Photography draws on visual memories, with one image feeding off, or building upon, another. A photograph can trigger of memories about a person, a place, or feelings. The photograph of the cacti does. It needs to be made more strange. Therein lies a possibility to explore with the 5×7 monorail.
