Snow, Santa Fe Style


This is one of my favorite walls in town. I would love to see the home that lies behind it and the gardens in the Spring. This is one of the oldest parts of the city and one of the most expensive ones too. So for me it's like window shopping.

Very good photo!

Olivier said...

en effet c'est un beau mur, surtout avec la neige, il ressort bien

Carola said...

You created a wonderful Santa Fe Daily Photo Style. Outstanding.
Thanks Randy.

Allison said...

I half expect to see an indian family coming out the door to cook their meal over an open fire, wrapped in mexican-indian blankets!

Kathy said...

Snow becomes adobe so well!

VP said...

This looks so 'real', just as it is!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

What a beautiful scene... It looks like a painting with the old weathered doors and walls with much history. Great capture, Randy

Bises,

Lúcia said...

You're right, it's very beautiful, specially with all the snow!
Have a great day Randy!

Leif Hagen said...

That looks like a photo which could hang in a gallery - great, Randy in a Jeep!

Magpie said...

Beautiful! I agree. This would be one of my favorites also. The snow and adobe...great.

Sharon said...

This is just gorgeous. I don't blame you for window shopping here.

Mahon said...

I understand you like this place ! I like the old door, and that makes us curious !...
I also like your environment, from here it looks like a beautiful decoration of cinema ! :))

Bye**

Arti said...

Beautiful, so rustic and charming... Yes it would be nice to know what is behind those walls!!
Have a wonderful week:-)

Kate said...

This looks like REAL adobe instead of the cement kind. Hang around until the owners emerge and then ask for an photo shoot. Guess that advice isn't too practical, but I hope that someday you make it inside!

texwisgirl said...

Love your architecture there. So unique to the area. :)

Halcyon said...

It is a beautiful wall. I would also love to have a peek inside the gardens in warmer months!

becky said...

Ah, beautiful shot, Randy.
Window shopping, indeed! I dream of a house on the hill and watching fabulous sunsets every night... ands the thunderstorms & lightning in the summer. Dare to dream, right?! Happy midweek!

Luis Gomez said...

Randy, it looks like a great place!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

We once looked at a home for sale like this in Borrego Springs CA. Open those doors and we were greeted with a large fountain in the courtyard, a swimming pool off to the left and the house and living area to the right all open to the courtyard. I almost had the wife willing to move. Almost...

Dawn said...

Oh this is wonderful! It reminds my of a sort of Secret Garden entrance....except without all the foliage. (That is one of my favorite books!)

Maybe you could shimmy over and capture whatever lays beyond?
(please?)
;)

Jarart said...

Yes, this is just lovely. Those old doors are wonderful.

Beautiful photo. I agree with all the other comments, so rustic and so real, the snow really sets it off.

Marty said...

this door and the wall are really beautiful ! I also would like to see
what happens behind that door !!
bisous Randy

Love this wall, Randy! I can see why it is your favorite. Excellent shot.

Regina K said...

Beautiful. Looks like a painting.

Paulo Rafael said...

Very nice pic! I don't knew Santa Fe has snow.

NYC In Photographs said...

I love that rustic look! I wonder what it looks like in the spring too.

Jack said...

It looks very authentic and appealing, doesn't it, Randy?

Sequim Daily Photo said...

I can completely see why that would bring on a curiosity on what is beyond! Pretty shot too.

Phillip Marshall said...

Randy, one of my favorites! I love Santa Fe. It is good to get to 'visit' via your posts.

Cezar and Léia said...

It reminds me in some way a movie scenery, it's wonderful!

Really weird to see this stye of architecture in snow. I always associate it with hot, dusty weather!
