Next to the park where I photographed the tree in yesterday's image is another park, this one dedicated to desert landscaping. My new fancy-schmancy lens had arrived earlier in the day and I couldn't wait to try it out, despite the fact that I had to work late and didn't have time to travel downtown to the places where I usually photograph. As it turned out, though, I still managed to find some interesting stuff to photograph there and this is my favorite image from that abbreviated late-night outing.
