First of all, I want to apologize for having been so slow to respond to comments for the last couple of weeks. I’ve been doing some traveling and haven’t been able to keep up the way I like.

I spent a week in Santa Fe, New Mexico, at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops; the legendary National Geographic photographer Sam Abell was teaching a week-long course and I was fortunate to have been selected to participate. Sam was the kind of teacher you’d want: talented, knowledgeable, and completely generous with helping us become better photographers. It was an important week.

This grave marker in a small cemetery is one of the images I made during the workshop. We found an interesting cemetery along the High Road between Santa Fe and Taos, and had time enough to stop for a while and practice the things Sam had taught us the first day of class…

  1. Besides this photo having an interesting subject and composition, it has brilliant whites, clear blacks, and a decent array of greys. I like it very much.

  3. This is a really marvellous shot—you have framed it really well, including the long stretch of graveyard behind this memorial. The context makes it extra-special.
