A fallen hero, 2019
The art of capturing moments has the power to transport people to a different place and time. It's about bringing the unknown to those who could not be part of that specific time in space.
This photograph makes me think about time. The saguaro that you see there is about 40 feet tall, meaning it is about 200 years old.
It was there perhaps when Mexico gained independence from Spain.
It was there when the USA took Tucson from Mexico.
It was there during the Civil War.
When it dies, it will take so much history with it, giving space perhaps to a new saguaro to carry its legacy for 200 more years.
