Theme Day: My Favorite Part Of Town.


It's the first of the month and another Theme Day has come to City Daily Photo. Today's theme is My Favorite Part of Town. When I first came to Santa Fe the first place I visited was Canyon Road. I love all the old houses and all of the art galleries that line this historic road. Maybe from all my post you've already gathered that. But I had to share it again, it is one of the loves of my life.

Please take sometime to visit all the wonderful photographers and their favorite part of their cities. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

The tiny steps covered with snow :)

Allison said...

I can see why this appeals to you! Would't mind a stroll there myself. Have a great Tuesday, Randy!

VP said...

For what I see and have seen from your past pictures, an easy place to like!

Kate said...

Excellent choice, Randy! I don't think that you could top Canyon Road for best choice of favorite spot. Lots to choose from while walking through that neighborhood. Have a good month!!

Randy, I am familiar with Canyon Road from a visit to SF and would have to agree with you... It is lovely with an abundance of art!

Bises,

Natural beauty, architectural beauty, and artistic beauty all in the same area, a perfect choice.

It was a pleasure to follow you through all the art galleries!
Have a nice day Randy!

Very nice Randy!

Magpie said...

I like what Sharon said. She sums it up nicely. This seems to be the part of town that has stolen your heart...understandably.

Great shot, Randy.... love the footprints in the bottom of the frame. You're reminding me it's time to get out & walk the town on my next day off. Sometimes I get caught up in work/school/grocery store & forget all the wonderful places to get out & walk... and window shop. :)

Jarart said...

I would have guessed this one! And can't blame you for loving this area of town.

EG Wow said...

Great choice! That would be one of my favourite places if I lived there too.

JM said...

From all I've seen on this blog I really understand why this is your favourite part of town.

This is particularly lovely with the steps (in the snow and the stairs!)
I *have* noticed!:-)

RedPat said...

it is a wonderful part of your town and I have enjoyed all the pics that you have shown us from this area. I hope to see it in real life one day!

Looks interesting! I love the tones in this shot!

Regina K said...

That is a wonderful area to live. You are so fortunate to be able to walk such an artistic and historic area.

Alan said...

I see why you love the road! It's great having so many art galleries together on one road.

Farmchick said...

I always like seeing the bright pops of color mixed in with the earth tones of your area.

Jack said...

I agree, Randy. Canyon Road is a pretty special place. I usually stay near the plaza but get to Canyon Road on the second day.

Olga said...

Lovely photo and a lovely story to go with it.

Doug Hickok said...

Very unique to Santa Fe. Must be a fun place to explore. I like going back to familiar haunts again and again, because there is usually something new, or an angle I hadn't seen before.

Dawn said...

Nice. Think I could love it there too.
Like the footprint in the snow:)

T. Becque said...

It is beautiful and again, wonderful contrast with the snow.
Do you still have your house in Bisbee? You live/lived in two great artists communities!

Halcyon said...

The snow makes it extra special.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

I think I do remember your fondness for Canyon Road...and I do remember all the shots you've taken of that shots and galleries on that road with fondness!
