The lighting on the flower shots is remarkable. Do you know their name? Any info you can share about the statue?

I look forward every year to the blooming of the yerba mansa which grows in bogs near the river. It needs good water to flourish, but is very tolerant of varying light conditions. The plants in the deep shade do fine, but flower later than those in the direct sun.

The statue is in front of the Albuquerque Art Museum. It's by a well-known NM artist, but his name escapes me at the moment. I'll make a note of it next time I walk by; it is only a few blocks west of where we live.

The compositions in the flower pictures are very attractive, you are getting very nice tones from that film / dev combination.

The sculpture is "Prayer" by Allan Houser. He was an interesting guy.
