There's been a lot of pain and not enough art.
In January I had shoulder surgery. I tore my Labral tendon trying to lift weights and begin the long process of attempting to get back in shape following my hysterectomy from March of 2017. When I went in for the MRI, there were some bone spurs, and during my surgery itself, they found a hole in my rotator cuff tendon--when it rains, it pours.
I haven't posted any pics here in a while. I wasn't able to do much of anything from January until now. I'm slowing gaining back my strength and mobility...a little at a time. Physical therapy is going well. I have a small collection of photos from this winter, from here and there. Some before my surgery and some that I've managed to create since.
This is that collection.
I have prints available for sale online here
Prints and gifts featuring my photography are also available from Cafe Press

Cara Walton is a purely accidental artist. She teaches high school students World History and likes to take pictures. Photography and art help her to stay sane in dealing with the day-to-day stress of her job and life in general.
She lives in Harrisonburg with her husband, daughter, two cats, and an obscene amount of Star Wars toys and other geeky items.
She mostly likes to take pictures of things that are in various states of decay. The history teacher in her likes to imagine the story behind what she is photographing, imagining the story of what used to be. She has also done several 365 self-portrait projects to force herself to be in front of the camera, instead of just behind it.
Cara has had photography displayed in various venues in Harrisonburg including Larkin Arts, Spitzer Art Center, Clementine, The Arts Council, Pure Eats, Ice House Studios, The Lady Jane, Three Notch’d, and The Artful Dodger. She was awarded an Advancing the Arts Grant from the Arts Council of the Valley in 2014 and recently had work accepted in juried competitions at the Shenandoah Valley Arts Center in Waynesboro, the 1650 gallery in Los Angeles CA, and ArtSpace in Richmond, VA. Her work was also included in a digital display in the Louvre in Paris as part of the opening reception of the Exposure Awards 2015.
