On the third day we went to a hacienda on he Rio Grande with three models. The late afternoon light streamed through windows.

We had assignments and one of our assignments was to capture a photo without a face.

Assignment: Beautiful photo   

This is the course coordinator, Alicia. Our assignment was to take a beautiful portrait. This girl really knew how to work the camera.

A self portrait   

All week long the assignment of a self portrait loomed over my head. I dreaded that assignment. Finally, on the last night there, I saw my shadow. Eureka! I had my self portrait.

This was probably my favorite photo of the entire week. We were at the hacienda, the Rio Grand was flowing past us below. The adobe wall speaks volumes about where we were.

It was just a great week.
