An interlude at the Dead Plant Arboretum


They say that variety is the spice of life.  There are other subjects for photography besides roller derby, and it is healthy to occasionally make photos of other subjects.  In the court yard outside the warehouse Santa Cruz practices is a bunch of dead plants in dead planters.
