Unfortunately, the owner of Studio321, Mary Aranda Hopkins, aka Maria Hernandez or "Mojophoto", passed away on May 3, 2010, of cancer. I am leaving her site up so anyone who wants to can look at her work, also the link to her guestbook. Here is a little tribute site I made for her: "Locked in Our Memory--For Maria in Tribute". And here is her obituary for anyone who is interested, originally published on The Savannah Morning News: (thanks to Diana for finding it!)
