A Cholla Portrait
"Robbie, isn't that just another one of your angled-mirror selfies?" Well, I mean yeah but it's also one of more than twenty different species of the cactus, and I've always enjoyed the local varietals. Finding one east of the continental divide was a little curious, but I haven't traveled this far south over the divide before.
We angle the mirrors on our Volkswagen bay window buses because the longest distance in a rectangle is the diagonal, and I want to see out as far as possible. The side effects include stupid debates on TheSamba.com, while also being able to see your tires and curbs when parallel parking. No downsides as I see it, and I see it clearly every morning when I wash the mirrors too.
