Ave Maria. Schubert Opera:

Atop
Touching our Lord
Draped in cascading folds of gold
The Immaculate Conception.

Nestled below
Silently in prayer
Whispers of peace
Whispers of help
Whispers for our poor.

Draped in flowing folds of white
Sisters of the Immaculate Conception.

Wrinkled old man
Rags of threads
Rags of holes
Shuffles slowly
Cobblestones.

Soft knock
Rugged mesquite door
Rusted hinge creaks
Angelic face
Peers
From within.

Humbled old man
Twisted
Gnarled hands
Paints cross on chest
Head bows.

Aging hands of love
Quietly pass nourishment.

Whispers
Of love
Of comfort

Old old
Our sick
Our poor
Our lonely.

Amen

Talented Photographer Olivia Visits Through Harold’s Lens.

Photographer Olivia Nye Robbins

In December 2013, 11-year old Olivia travelled, with her mother Courtney, to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico for a week of exploring.

The images Olivia captured, of the life and flavor of this UNESCO World Heritage site, are simply amazing for someone so young.

Olivia captured her images with a SLR Nikon D300s camera with an AF-S NIKKOR 50mm 1:1.4 G lens.
She did not shoot with a tripod.
Olivia shot in Manual mode in RAW for all of her images.
With her eye looking through the Nikon viewfinder eyepiece mounted on a Hoodman HoodEYE eye cup, Olivia was constantly adjusting her camera’s shutter speed, f-stop, ISO and depth-of-field without looking at the dials.
It took her about thirty minutes to learn how to do it.

For Post Processing, Olivia downloaded her images into Adobe Lightroom 5, installed on a MacBook Air computer, while listening to her favorite celebrity/musical artist, Macklemore.

I hope you enjoy Olivia’s photography as much as I do!
