This shooting takes place in The Root System Nursery, a retail greenhouse nursery and rock shop located in South-Central Michigan. The nursery specializes in unique cactus and succulents from around the world with 2,000 different species. Possesing the largest collection in the state they carry alpine rock garden plants, cold hardy cacti, succulents, and perennials. Succulents and cacti are fun to shoot, especially up close or from above. That's when their unique, often geometric form, is the most vivid. Other than that, these plants have dazzling and sometimes outworldly appearance. Instead of the leaves, stems and trunks of typical plants, succulents display forms that can resemble columns covered with spines and hair, or heaped piles of translucent, angular pebbles, or the fanciful globe-shaped inhabitants of some science-fiction coral reef:) Odd, strikingly bizarre. We will shoot for two hours and then go for lunch to The Deck Down Under, which is 9 min away from our shooting place on
