Description This magnificent building is in constant use today for concerts and various genre of entertainment. I had permission to shoot some pictures so we climbed to the third level for this shot. I gave the Opera Company permission to use this image in any way they wished, and I have been told that this image will be the cover of VIVA magazine, but I do not know if that is still scheduled or when it might appear. It was used in the 2014 mailer brochure by the city.
Allen Sheffield, El Paso Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement I am a retired university lecturer by vocation, but I am a photographer, writer, and very occasional voice talent by avocation.
My wife and I love to travel - usually pulling our little camper, but we made trips to Machu Picchu and The Galapagos in 2007, and 2 weeks driving in England to start 2008. For a retirement reward to ourselves in early June 2012, we spent two weeks in France. We started in Nice and then took a week long cruise up the Rhone River before spending just a few days in Paris.
In January 2014, we spent a fantastic week on the Amazon River above Iquitos, Peru.
I have been taking pictures for over 50 years, so I have quite a variety of images. Check my website if you are interested in some old pix.
