Clouds


This weekend was a little cold and cloudy. These fluffy clouds spent most of the day hanging around town. I caught this one while going to the New Mexico Museum of Art. They have an exhibit that I wanted to see called Cloudscapes. I was dying to see some of the Ansel Adams and Eliot Porter photographs. The exhibit did not disappoint.

The blue sky, the fluffy clouds, the patterned rhythm of beams in adobe - I love this photograph.

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a weekend.

Kate said...

I cannot imagine either photographer disappointing a viewer. You must have been enthralled by the photos. Wish I could have seen them, too. I enjoy the angle of your photo.

I'd walk a mile for an Ansel Adams! What a photog he was. I always think of him when people tell me proudly that they don't "touch up" their photos but present them right out of the camera. Adams spent hours manipulating his photos in every possible way to make them look just right!

Great Randy!

I would love to see that exhibit! I love your clouds.

Don't worry, weather will be warm very soon. :)
Last month I went to an exhibition in Argentina and saw some great photos of Ansel Adams, Robert Doisneau, Cartier-Bresson, Sebastião Salgado. I wish I had half of their talent.

texwisgirl said...

do you think they tethered those clouds over the museum as a way to advertise the exhibit? brilliant marketing! :)

In my brief pass through Sante Fe last month I saw that this style and color predominately was it for the architecture in businesses, apartments, condos and homes alike. Is there a building code that one must abide by? Like if you wanted to build a purple Victorian, your best bet would be to move to some other town?

This is the most beautiful roof line! You are lucky it was just cold and not snowing like crazy as it did here.

Ms. Becky said...

Hi there, I followed you from Sinbad and I On The Loose. when I saw that you live in Santa Fe, well, I just had to say hello. It's my favorite city in the whole world and your scenes put me there when I'm far away. thanks for the fix. it was lovely.

That is a fabulous shot of adobe detailing! Love it.

Beautiful sky!!

JM said...

I just LOVE these details! They somehow remind me of some adobe buildings in Mali which I think are gorgeous.

A great contrast of the blue and brown shades.
