Art History 3600 Karen Senne July 13, 2013 A very interesting Wednesday It was the beginning of September, when I had a very unexpected and interesting Wednesday, let’s say one that will be in my memory forever. That Wednesday morning was just another normal morning; I had breakfast and got ready for classes. That morning was a very sunny morning and I was very excited. On Wednesdays I only had class till 4pm, Thus I could go outside and enjoy the rest of that beautiful sunny day. One of my favorite outside activities is hiking, mainly here in the west there are so many amazing places to explore and appreciate the amazing nature.
Although loosely organized and relatively short-lived, Group f/64 brought the new West Coast vision of straight photography to national attention and influence. San Francisco's DeYoung Museum promptly gave f/64 an exhibition and, in that same year, gave Adams his first one-man museum show. Adams was an activist for the cause of wilderness and the environment. Over the years he attended innumerable meetings and wrote thousands of letters in support of his conservation philosophy to newspaper editors, Sierra Club and Wilderness Society colleagues, government bureaucrats, and politicians. However, his great influence came from his photography.

ART 199 Karmin Godina May 8, 2013 From His Lens to My Soul Never before had I thought of a photograph as art until I was introduced to a photograph taken by Ansel Adams. I found myself standing in front the framed piece for quite some time enjoying every aspect of the picture. It was his famous photo of Bridalveil Fall at Yosemite National Park. I knew at that moment that I was going to take it home. When I got home I did some research on the internet and found that overall most of his work was done in black and white, and that most of his work was of nature.
This relationship for nature is shared most ardently between these two. Sometimes they exert their love for nature subconsciously. For example, when Victor has to rid himself of the female monster ruins, he chooses a lake as the venue. Even though this is not a happy moment in his life, his love for nature is what draws him to it, regardless of the circumstances: “The lake refreshed him and filled him with agreeable sensations.” Connecting with nature not only helps to calm and

David, my boyfriend at the time, took me to Buffalo Mountain for our first date. Buffalo Mountain means more to me than just a beautiful view.

ALBERT NAMATJIRA BOOMERANG 1936 ALBERT NAMATJIRA WALL PLAQUE c. 1937 Namatjira painted in a unique style. His landscapes normally highlighted both the rugged geological features of the land in the background, and the distinctive Australian flora in the foreground with very old, stately and majestic white gum trees surrounded by twisted scrub. His work had a high quality of illumination showing the gashes of the land and the twists in the trees. His colours were similar to the ochres that his ancestors had used to depict the same landscape, but his style was appreciated by Europeans because it met the aesthetics of western art.

I came here from the downtown neighborhood of Sacramento, California. Although midtown is loaded with trees of all kinds, an urban forest really, it is nothing compared to the majesty of my backyard forest here in Shasta. I found myself in these woods, my spirit activated deeply and found its purpose. I discovered my children and who they were then, and who they still now are becoming. For 12 years the three of us have immersed ourselves in the river together.
