El Nicho


El Nicho is a wonderful little shop in the downtown area. It's full of work by local artisans. The first things that attracted me to this place was the color of these old doors. Happy Saturday everyone!

Love those colors! You see a lot of that of course in South America. I tend to think if we all painted our doors bright colors we'd be a lot happier. Just a theory.

Most attractive, I love that blue. It entices me to wander round inside.

Joanne said...

Yep, I'd be the first one in there! !

Traveling Hawk said...

Yes, this is Santa Fe I love!
Happy weekend to you too, Randy!

Kathy said...

These doors look worthy of a full frontal shot. Whatdaya think?

Michael Rowland said...

Happy Saturday Randy,,,I wonder what that colour is, not sky blue,,,M

Un fin de semana más me tienes paseando entre tus cosas. Siempre geniales. Buen weekend.

Saludos y un abrazo.

Carola said...

Again a wonderful shot.
Blue doors are great, so wellcoming. We had a blue garden gate in our old place, it was the only one here. It's not popular in Germany.

Very pretty, this is the kind of place that springs to mind when I think of Santa Fe (though I only know it through your blog!)

Kate said...

Missed this one. With all the visual images one encounters in Santa Fe, one has to stay alert. You're right about the doors.

That is my favourite "blue"
Nice!!

MaCoBra said...

Haha, my paintings or my feet? :)

Beautiful welcoming doors,

becky said...

I haven't been in there- I'll have to stop by & check it out! Looks cool!

Sharon said...

Those doors would tempt me to go inside!

Johnny said...

"Nicho" en español significa el hueco donde se guarda el ataúd , pero en este caso está más relacionado con el hueco para guardar un objeto decorativo. Muy curioso.

VP said...

Lovely place. The name means something like 'alcove', which in Italian is almost the same: 'nicchia'.

You do live in a place with incredible blue doors, Randy! No wonder you are drawn to Paris... you and your camera would have a field day with blue doors!

Nice shop and photo

I would love this place...and I do like the blue doors, too! And you want more winter? Hmmm...

I want 75 degrees and sunshine. But it's cold again. Darn!

Have a great weekend, Randy!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I agree with you. I like the faded turquoise color. The weathered posts on each side add character also. Enjoy the weekend.

Luis Gomez said...

Beloved image,always dreaming from the famus santa Fe! Have a nice day.

Upper Cesc said...

I like this colour, but not de coffin (nicho)!

Allison said...

We see a lot of that color blue in France. It warms my heart to know it has an American heritage, too! ;)

Lúcia said...

Everything in Santa Fe is so beautiful! Love the style!
Have a good Saturday!

Jarart said...

I'm with you, Randy. I would have to go through those beautiful old doors too.

Magpie said...

What a gorgeous pop of color. I'm sure those doors attract lots of shoppers.

Leif Hagen said...

The doors caught my attention too! I'd probably have an "accident" in there with my credit card....

RedPat said...

So very "Sante Fe"! Love it.

Cezar and Léia said...

Yes, they're inviting!
God bless you!

JM said...

That is lovely! Such a great combinations of colours. It is an adobe building, right?

bfarr said...

Love that blue. I agree with L.D.

Youth_in_Asia said...

That is a great entrance way. The colors are great and so is the architecture. Looks VERY Southwestern.

You have to love a business that puts the spotlight on local artisans too.

Irina said...

They definitely have the feel for color. I would have rushed there, too

teca said...

I love little shops! This shot is lovely...

Hugs.

Farmchick said...

This picture looks so inviting. I love the color on those old doors.

Glad that the owner kept the door as it is, well seen and capture.
Have a great weekend.

I love old doors.

Maybe it's the smell! Ha!

EG Wow said...

Love the atmosphere in this photo1

Halcyon said...

I would also be attracted to those doors. That's a really nice shade and the name of the shop is intriguing.

Jack said...

The blue doors are great, as are the carved wood features at the beams.

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

blue is cool (two souls, one thought) - nice details in your picture

T. Becque said...

Love doors like that!

Sequim Daily Photo said...

I see others had the same thought as I did when I first saw that, I thought "how inviting!"
I'd love to browse around there.

Tracy said...

The doors are gorgeous. I do like the blue.

Ola said...

The colors remind me a bit of Greece
