Saguaro National Park in Black and White

Heaven and Hell in Tucson

This semester I’m taking a landscape photography class as an elective. Our first photo assignment was to capture “heaven and hell” in Tucson. Most folks took separate photos of heaven (the good) and hell (the bad), but I took photos at religious sites that I hoped would represent both heaven and hell in each particular […]
