The Yin and the Yang of Life in the Desert

I like the latent tension in this photograph between the peaceful glow of the city lights and the painful needles on the saguaro cactus. It’s a sort of commentary on life in Tucson. Those of us who live here are ever-vigilant to not get poked; not get dehydrated; not get sun stroke; not get bitten by scorpions or snakes – and yet, we have a laid-back, no worries, peacefulness to our city.

  1. I thought of the picture so much differently from how you described it. I instead saw the peace of nature juxtaposed against the chaos of city life. Haha. But I do take your point.
