Here's what Shirley McClintock said about her experience in Oaxaca City this week with me, "You did it again. You knocked it out of the park. Beautiful city, great food, good company, and wonderful instruction. You have those leadership qualities that we all wish we had. I learned more about composition and what makes a great photo. You have certainly found your calling and excel at it."
