Santa Elena Canyon, Big Bend, Texas



Doris Villarreal Ramos

September 24, 2007

Doris arrived just before sunset, just in time for me to take a few photos in that soft golden late afternoon light as she wore one after another of the extravagant new pieces that I am crocheting with hand spun, hand dyed yarns.

I had not forgotten how easy Doris is to photograph and how she can make the work her own. In photographs, this down-to-earth talented young woman often resembles an exotic from an imaginary land. Doris has been busy this year, newly married, working for an architectural firm and making preparations for her architectural license. We shared a leisurely catch up visit and big bowls of beans a la charra that were simmering on the stove.
