It's the end of another year and I want to thank you all for sharing you wonderful photographs with me over the last year. In 2012 I wish you all many joyful memories, hundreds of smiles and peace that will fill your hearts and souls. Happy New Year to you and yours!
I shot this on Christmas Eve at the Canyon Road Christmas Eve walk. This was done at one of the schools nearby.

Our snow is almost all gone down here in the city. The mountains still look beautiful and I hope to head up there for a hike during the long weekend. Today the weather is going to be in the high 40's so this parking lot will probably be reduced to mud.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

To all of my friends I wish you all a very Merry Christmas full of love and joy. You are all the best gift any blogger could ask for. I shot this last night during the Canyon Road Christmas Eve walk. The road was full of carolers, Farolitos, bonfires and loads of Christmas cheer!
Check out this link for the definition of a Farolito (also known as a Luminaria).

The plaza is full of lights and Faralitos for the holidays. While walking down San Francisco street the other evening I caught the Basilica as it was being lit by the setting sun and street lights. It will be quite busy this evening with the Children's Mass followed by the Midnight Mass.
Wishing you all of the joy, peace and happiness of the Christmas season. Oh and if your still shopping today don't let the grumpy people ruin your holiday.

We have a wonderful book at our local bookstores called "Christmas in Santa Fe." It is a "rich cultural feast of Spanish, Anglo and Pueblo traditions," according to Amazon. It's funny but they always seem to sell out every year all over town. I caught this display at the Collected Works bookstore. Happy Friday everyone. If your traveling for the holidays be safe.

If your shopping for that perfect piece of Native American pottery you have to stop by the Andrea Fisher Gallery on San Francisco street. They represent many Native American artist from all of the pueblos here in New Mexico. It really is a treat even just to window shop. One day I hope to own a piece of my own.

Looks like I caught a little of everything in this shot of an art gallery on Delgado Street with crosses Canyon Road. We have a bench for VP of Livorno Daily Photo. A Christmas wreath and some Faralitos or as some call the Luminarias on the roof which shine brightly at night. Some snow and a small hint of the sky in the window reflection.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. I am off to Albuquerque to finish off some holiday shopping.

Hotel Chimayo is all decked out for the holidays. Located in the downtown area and within walking distance to the plaza. It's a great place to stay when visiting our city.
I am posting a link to their website because they are having a sweepstakes for a two night stay. Who knows, you next trip could be to Santa Fe.

Yesterday we took a drive to take in some of the beauty of the Winter. You can't help but notice this rock when driving down the mountain but this time I couldn't help but notice how it stood out because the snow melted from the warmth of the rock.
Some of you asked about the Mexican chocolate that I post last week. Take a look at this wonderful blog for a great post.

One of my favorite places to shop on the plaza is the Santa Fe Indian Trading Company. It mostly has tourist type merchandise but it's fun. I love their little Christmas tree in the front window. You can also see a reflection of the trees on the plaza and the evening sky.
Have a great weekend everyone!

“Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey.” Alex Noble
Today is the end of another 16 week class for me. I hate speaking in front of people so I am nervous as all heck already but I am happy for the journey and what I learned. Time to kick back, well at least for the next four weeks and then it's on to something new.
I caught this in an artist home garden. I don't think I would have the patience to create this.

Everyday I take a walk as part of my lunch hour. My walk takes me along the railroad tracks and the other day I looked up as the RailRunner was making its way towards me and I caught this small sign with the number 20 on it. I love the way it looked against this naked tree. Click on it for a better look.

Well this Theme Day caught me really off guard. Luckily I had this shot that I caught downtown a few weekends ago. Take a look at other "action" shots from my fellow Daily Photo bloggers: Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

I almost forgot to share some of the photos I took at the Recycled Art Festival. This first piece of art work is by Lane Patterson. How would you like to have this Cowboy lamp in your home? Mr. Lane currently shows in galleries in New Mexico, California, and Arizona. He also shows at the Recycled Art Festival every year. Make sure to click on the photo for a closer look.

I saw these two leaves hanging on for dear life at the end of a couple of branches and it reminded me of ME so I decided to post it. I also loved the shadow too.
Speaking of hanging on. Today is the last full day of my class and I have to spend the week prepping for my final on the 5th. I wanted to let you know that I might not be able to stop by your blogs everyday. I will do my best to keep up but I didn't want you all to think I have forgotten you. Have a wonderful week everyone!

As you will remember from Saturdays post I went to the Clay Fair. I told myself that I would add a new piece to my collection. Well to say the least and as you can see I went a bit overboard. I've added 5 new tiles to my ever growing collection! Do I have buyers remorse you might ask. Heck no!

I was out and about shopping when I caught sight of this reflection in the mirror.
Speaking of shopping it's that time of year for the Clay Fair. My favorite tile artist Kathleen Koltes will be there. You might remember the last ones I bought. Who knows what I might will come home with.

Someone asked if I went back to see how the empty canvas in yesterdays post was developing. After making several passes along Canyon Road the only thing I saw was people sitting around and talking with the artist. After the third pass I just moved on to see the other artists.

This is one of the artists chalk tray that I shot during the Paint Out weekend on Canyon Road. When I saw it I thought of all you. You all bring me such joy with your colorful comments and the wonderful photos you post each day on your blogs. I appreciate every single one of you. Have a wonderful Sunday!

I love this sculpture. I found it in an area on Canyon Road that I have only ventured to a few times. It's the perfect reminder that we need to not take ourselves so serious all the time. It was a great reminder of what it was like to be a kid and just have fun. I hope your weekend plans include a little fun. This is what I am doing for fun today.
