My brother, who lives in Phoenix, sent me this photo of the latest and greatest in sustainable security systems there. Ain't nobody who wants to mess with those spines and glochids.
His photo reminded me of a building I photographed in Filmore, CA. I wasn’t paying any attention to the people in the building, on the other side of the windows, until one of them came out to find out what I was up to. I assured him I was harmless and only interested in the agaves, he seemed to relax. He told me that he loved them because they meant he didn't have to purchase a security system or put bars on the windows. Good point! Who’s crazy enough to crawl over a wall of agaves?
