The Juniper Level Botanical Garden has a huge collection of agave species, which I find very comforting because it reminds me of my home state of New Mexico. When I photograph agave, I tend to visualize the final image in black and white. Agave's simple physical structure and smooth texture helps me see it as abstract shapes and lines, instead of a plant. And taking away color emphasizes that even more. I need to remember to visually breakdown more subjects as simple geometric forms because it definitely leads to more unique photos.
