For my birthday in 2016 I wanted to wake up looking out on Monument Valley. This was one of the places that drew me to the southwest ever since as a teenager I saw the opening section of the Eiger Sanction. This was my 6th visit to the Valley but the first in the fall. When I returned home I was not sure how I would use the images I had taken but once I began to work then these faces appeared that reminded me of all the emojis my friends had sent me via text messages on my birthday.
