18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Concrete Jungle

This photo is of a small desert garden in a concrete pot located in a corner of a rain stained desert building in Balboa Park in San Diego ,California. I found this hidden gem on my way to the cactus gardens as I take a short cut behind the Balboa Park Club, a pueblo style building located next to the gardens. What struck me was the way the colors of the rain stained background complimented the tree and cacti and also the shape and composition of the actual garden.
