Santa Clara Cemetery, ABQ, NM
I found this cemetery in my search for statues of Mary. She wasn't here.
This isn't an amazing image, but I like it because it shows an old typical New Mexico cemetery with a lot of vandalism, decay and erosion. People often call this section of the cemetery, the old section at the base of the Mesa, the Riverside Cemetery. A canal, not a river, runs past it.
At the top of the Mesa is a newer section of this cemetery. It has a beautiful view of the city and Sandia mountains.
Thank you for all the encouraging words yesterday. I tried to comment on everyone's daily, but didn't have time. I had a busy day yesterday and for the most part took a break from photos, class and finals. I quilted a little instead. But was running errands most of the day.
Having my work critiqued is a subjective thing. It isn't bad. It is necessary and could help me improve my skills. I realized that. I am more critical of myself than anyone else is. I think that I am tired and ready for this semester to be over. Taking TWO photo classes at once was a challenge, because I tried not to have the projects overlap--here at the end they will overlap. I am dealing with two professors who have very different personal styles. And have given conflicting opinions--that gets confusing. I find myself turning in work that isn't really ME, but what I think the professor will like and will therefore get me the better grade. For the final projects in both classes, I'm going to listen to the advise, but tr to make something that is my style. And for the next 5-days I will stress over it.
To see two of the assignments that i turned in:
If you want to comment in this galleries, please do. I'd enjoy hering true evaluations--good or bad. These projects are done for now. I may work on doing soundslide presentations of them in the future, but not for a grade. Maybe there are things we can all learn thru critique.
