When I rounded the corner of this truly unique and beautiful Church in the Taos Pueblo in Northern New Mexico I was stunned by the powerful image of the rising "steps" in the walls juxtaposed with the simplistic outline of the crosses and the bell and ladder leading up to the tower.

We all hear a calling in our Spirituality, whatever that drum/bell/song may be, and we all rise up to meet whatever it is that we believe enfolds this beautiful Universe of ours.
My Hope is that for the short time we inhabit our lovely little planet, we bring the Spirit of Peace, Joy and Love to all....now that is true Ascension!

Title: Ascension
Image Size: 5" x 7"
Archival Mat Size: 8" x 10"

**Camera and Film: This photo was taken with a Nikon FE 35ml camera using Kodak Professional 400 Black and White negative film. This IS NOT a digital image.

**Printing and Paper: I printed this photograph myself in a Professional Darkroom on certified Archival Ilford Multi-grade photographic paper with Pearl Surface (an "egg-shell" matte surface). This is a heavy weight fine art paper that feels substantial when you hold it, because it's not the light weight, flimsy photo paper you are probably used to handling from commercial digital photography prints. It feels REAL! :)
Also, my prints show considerably more detail than most computer monitors which usually don't accurately capture the color or contrast of the original photograph.

**Mat: The "Ascension" Photograph has been matted in an Archival Mat that has a wonderful textured surface that reminds me of the Adobe walls of the Church so I thought it was Perfect!

**Signed and Dated: Yes! And Titled, on the back. I can also Title, Sign and Date it on the front, on the Mat below the image, if you would like. Please leave a note in the "message to seller" upon checkout.

**Editions of this print: This is an Original in the sense that I print each one of these by hand with different exposure times in the darkroom so each "copy" of this photo will be totally unique and different than any other copy I will ever make.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Peace and smiles.....Kristin
