Contrast


Yesterday's colors were so vivid I thought I would tone it down a bit for little rust and old paint. This little beauty belongs to an artist in Abiquiu. Good thing this wasn't for sale or it would be parked in Santa Fe today.

Oh my, this one just reaches out to me. You have really captured this old car with its soft palate of colors built over the years. Great photo, Randy!

A cool, artistic bit of photography. I think I should have kept my first car and sold it to you - a 1937 Chevy...great fun!

Interesting to see fall colors and flavors (pumpkins) in Santa Fe. I'll always remember driving through Santa Fe during Christmas and seeing all the luminarias. Given the limited light pollution, the sight was magical! Your town is the best.

I just stumbled across your blog while looking around the Web for a photo of Mozart's Garage. (I saw the sign during our roadtrip to Santa fe but missed the photo opp.)

I haven't found a photo, but am glad I found your blog. Beautiful blog. Beautiful city.
