This dead agave looked like it got so hot in the desert heat that it just melted.

  1. Interesting that there is a sense of “flow” in this subject visually, though if I were to touch the leaves, I know from experience that they would be hard and brittle. There’s an echo of Edvard Munch (The Scream) or Dali (The Persistence of Memory) in this image with things “melting.”

    1. Your comment about a connection to Munch or Dali is interesting. Concerning my descrption of melting, The Persistence of Memory is certainly apropos. With The Scream it’s more your general description of flow that makes the connection.
