Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” Workshop Day 5. Flying Egyptian Goddess

Prior to departing Kelly Place B&B I saw this wooden model of a “Flying Egyptian Goddess” hanging from the ceiling of the activities lodge. I did a number of shots, trying to bounce the flash in a way to minimize shadows. I liked this one the best. Then a long drive back to Boulder.
