Overtly Artsy Photo Warning

The LA Times likes a cactus garden in Malibu, and publishes 18 separate photos! At least 3 of these are overtly artsy, especially the one with the 2 blue bottles (Photo #7, by Ricardo DeAratanha). It is a very strange choice for a newspaper to publish non-informative photographs, no matter how artistically composed and arranged.

But interesting!

When Kamm moved into the two-story, 1960s home on the hillside bluff overlooking the Malibu Colony, the 100-foot-long terrace had not a single plant. Because he had a severe brown thumb and had never cared for a garden in his life, he began buying cactuses and succulents: “the biggest, cheapest, least troublesome thing I could plant,” he said.
