I take thousands of photos a year. Some of them I instantly know are going to be stellar. Other times, I capture an image just because I like a color or shape it represents. This is one of those shots.
This cactus caught my eye because of its thorns and how it decided to grow in so many different directions. It was really gnarly and I liked that.
I never thought much more about this shot until last night when I was going through photos from my life in Texas. I decided to see if I could turn the photo into saleable print. Low and behold, talk about turning a frog into a prince!
I think this might be one of my favorite prints of all time. This just goes to show you to never give up on a shot.
