Prickly Pear Cactus

Prickly Pear Cactus, originally uploaded by BokehMojo.

This past week I was in Tucson for my company’s annual sales kickoff meeting. While I don’t travel extensively, I do get to leave my hometown more often than the average guy.  Luckily for me my career with my current company began in Tucson and takes me “home” at least once a year.  In the past I’ve never taken the camera on these trips.

This trip I resolved to change all that.  I extended my trip, stayed at a nice place and actually got out of the resort after spending a little time walking around the Westin’s beautiful grounds where I took this shot.

I’ll be posting a couple of other shots later on in the week, but if I learned one thing from Chase Jarvis it’s this, “the best camera is the one that’s with you.” He’s right…

Just imagine what Snoopy would have felt getting out of the car at the rest stop only to see this!

I absolutely love my 50mm lens. Although I have learned to be really careful with the focus at apertures of 1.8 (or less). Sometimes the depth of field is so shallow that the eyes can be in focus while the nose is a little soft!
