This is "Cowboy Country"! I haven't been this excited about anything since I got a Hopalong Cassidy outfit for my eigth birthday.
There is virtually nothing green in the desert. The cactus are clearly dormat. I don't know what I expected to see, I'm learning about a whole new look to the desert.
The more I think about my conversation with Casey the more his words are ringing in my ears.
He said, in affect,"I don't know how to photograph the desert landscape." Trying to "see" this landscape in a new way is something of a challenge. A good puzzle for an old brain to think about.
