Cross in the Sky.


This cross sits upon a Catholic church in Galisteo a wonderful little town south of Santa Fe. The clouds were floating by in this perfect blue sky and I could not resist the shot. Today would have been my father's 72nd birthday, this post is for him.

It is so hard to lose a parent! It's even harder when they die young. My best to you and I agree with Allison - he would be proud!

Thanks for the info on the Adobe Flash course. I think you'll like it a lot and it may well expand your creativity exponentially!
