Tyrone rules!

Yesterday morning we went to Shidoni, a sculpture garden and metal foundry in Tesuque, NM. We roamed the ground for 2 hours, shooting, experimenting, basically playing. I don’t play enough in real life and it felt so good. I wanted to skip and sing. I didn’t skip. I definitely sang. And took a few photos to boot.

In the evening we went into the Plaza to photograph people. This is NOT my usual thing; I never thought I had an interest in shooting people. (You know me, all plants all the time.) It was absolutely exhilerating and a wonderful excuse to go up to total strangers and start a conversation. Thrilling in a way that surprised me greatly. My favorite face of the day was Tyrone, a boy scout from Atlantic City, NJ, about to embark on a 65 mile, 10 day hike through the desert wilderness. Have a great trip, Tyrone, and thanks for letting me take your photo!
