Soto Tumacacori Mission

Welcome. This winter has been an anemic for making pictures but productive for projects. Work continues on both the Coastal Defense book project and on a body of work from my 17 years living near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. More on that this summer...

Another major body of work, one that I feel is complete as far as the images, is the Spanish Mission work from TX and AZ. This winter offered the opportunity to edit the work down from over 15 years of working and learning to a manageable project size: about 60 images. Indeed, there was an image or two where I had stood in the same place (give or take a few feet) and made an image 3 or 4 times in a number of negative format sizes over the years. Guess I must have liked that view to keep coming back.

Today I post the first group from this work with more to come as I print it. Some of these images work well in several sizes, a number of them only need to be printed in a small print size and there are a few that just have to be made large because of the content and it's relationship to body size. As always, I can offer up my size recommendations on any image you choose. See you soon
