Contrary to what you may be thinking, the Lensball does not conjure spirits or provide a glimpse into the future. What it does do, however, is create distorted upside down images that can be used to add a creative element to a variety of photographic situations.

A Brief History of Tome', New Mexico
Tome' is located off HWY47 south of the intersection with El Cerro Loop (formerly known to long term residents as "the 4-way stop") and is one of several small communities that run together in the area generally known as "Los Lunas".
Today, Tome is little more than a blip on the map but, once upon a time, it was the county seal of Valencia County and is the oldest Hispanic settlement in Valencia County.

I am DeAnna Vincent, fine art and portrait photographer in Los Lunas, New Mexico. These are the photos from my everyday adventures.
