photo request #2: a blooming yuca plant
a little while back i asked for photo requests. palm axis, a faithful reader of this blog suggested that i get shot of the beautiful yucca plant that is currently blooming all over southern california. my quest had been unsuccessful until a trip to the la county museum of art. their fantastic "phantom sightings: art after the chicano movement" exhibit included an artist named margarita cabrera and her artwork. as you can see, it included the above vw bug as well as cactus and a blooming yucca plant made from reclaimed border patrol uniforms. very cool indeed - and the perfect way to snap off a photo that filled the request of my reader, and yet was also very uniquely different (much like her wonderful blog). go check out this exhibit in person if you are in the area.
thanks so much for the photo suggestion, and everyone else can feel free to keep the photo suggestions coming. i still have a few more requests to fulfill, they should be posted in the next few weeks.
