Running through the desert semi-dressed feeling the earth beneath my feet and pursuing my passion in photography, only second to teaching.
I took this shot in a workshop taught by Bobbi Lane at the Santa Fe Workshops, I couldn’t have imagined that taking that during the workshop I would meet so many great loving people and have such mind blowing experiences. Bobbi will teaching it again this summer, and if you’re looking for a photography great workshop, this would be one to sign up for. Barbara another participant, and a fabulous photographer, we were out in this beautiful landscape of New Mexico. the rest of class was over the ridge and out of sight. Bobbi had assigned us all to do a self-portrait, and I had some different ideas. But at that moment, I knew what I wanted to. I asked Barbara to watch my, stripped to nothing at all, grabbed a beautiful piece of fabric, set the timer for 10 sec, and ran towards the horizon. The class was coming back, but I still hadn’t gotten the right shot, so Barbara being the good person that she was, continued to watch my back until, I got the right it. I threw my clothes on behind a rock and Barbara headed back. It turned out just what I hope it would be.
So with school wrapping up, I’m getting back into the cyperspace arena. I’m picking up a Holga, heading to darkroom, plan on catching up with so many friends now that my new life settled down. So summer looks to have incredible possibilites. I two great projects in the pipe, finishing another, and have lots of hope for new horizons.
