Taking Stillhouse Road home

As an alternative route home from my studio in Paris to our home out in the country, I take Stillhouse Road.  I like the name, Stillhouse Road.  The drive home on this road calms me.  It prepares me for home.  It stills my soul. 

Still working with the iPhone to see what I can and can not capture.  It is hard to hold it still enough to take the long range shots of birds.  This spring the trees and the grass are just lovely.  I still have a lot to learn about this camera but I am really liking some of the images I can get with it!

Almost done!

I finished my last critique of the semester yesterday.  I am almost done with grad school.  I write my thesis in the fall, have my thesis show and defend it in the spring and I'll be done.  I can hardly believe I've made it this far.  If all goes well, I'll graduate next spring with a Master's of Fine Art from Texas A&M- Commerce. 

Just thought I'd share a couple of my images with you.  In grad school, you do not strive to take just a technically good image but one that has meaning and is in the context of art history (and  photography) and relates to your thesis.  This is so much harder than you can imagine.  I'm doing self-portraits without my being in the image!

By next spring, I'll need to have enough images that support my thesis to make a nice showing in the university gallery. 

I'll be working all summer trying to gather materials for my thesis and shooting images.
