Beauty Blossoms In Strange Places

Posted by
J.R. (Urasoe City, Japan) on 26 July 2014 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

On a late night photo walk and found this very tall beautiful cactus growing up out of an ugly old alley with a canal in the middle well down below sidewalk level, it was growing up over my head:)

FUJIFILM FinePix X100 1/4 second F/2.0 ISO 3200 19 mm

Just having fun. Love to shot. Live in a beautiful place. Lots of flowers and plants, and the ocean and beaches here in Okinawa are beautiful. I'm not a professional, my editing probably sucks but I'm having fun. Beauty is everywhere, it's all around us so I have some kind of a camera with me almost everywhere I go.

A very interesting place and great photo. Part of me would like to step back and see how tall the cactus actually is. :)
