For our Photography 1 class, we each needed to make a documentary
series. I chose "The San Lorenzo River" as my topic. I photographed the
river, both in town and upstream in Henry Cowell State Park. The contact
prints came out too dark, but the enlargements came out well.
I lent some of my nicely mounted photos to my sister, so she could
decorate the university office where she worked. One weekend, somebody
broke in and stole two $1000 IBM Selectric typewriters and my mounted
photos on the walls. On the one hand, I was glad that someone admired my
artwork enough to commit a crime about it (although the $1000
typewriters may have been the main motive). On the other hand, I didn't
like losing my work to thieves.
