Yes, a book, but obviously that isn’t the main topic of this picture, but it is an added bonus. The inspiration for this picture was playing with space, both in the division of the rectangle and also the emphasis of the spatial depth. This was further enhanced by the choice and characteristics of the lens and aperture, focussing on the cactus in the foreground while leaving elements beyond the plane of focus to dissolve into the out of focus bokeh.


I love the cactus next to the smooth beam.

Reading the picture. Nice!


So lovely to see a photograph from an independent camera such as a Leica.
Subject matter like Ukiyo-e. Love the cactus and the color.
