The brightly colored leaves and intense red berries of this Nandina plant, aka Heavenly Bamboo, provided a vibrant complementary color scheme for this photo. Native to eastern Asia, the plant is actually an evergreen shrub and not a bamboo at all. Photographed with my iPhone.

This historical vehicle was the actual fire truck used at Alcatraz, America's most feared prison. When the penitentiary closed in 1963, the truck was a wreck. It was hauled away, and ultimately restored to original condition by Nevada prison inmates, which seemed oddly appropriate. Now the Diamond T Fire Truck is back at Alcatraz Island, and has been viewed by millions of visitors. Photographed in 2011.
