Old and Older


I love the old gate on this building and by the look of the adobe at the corner of the wall the building must be alot older.

Great shot. Your perfect Santa Fe style. I like this so much.

Randy, I never expected that my last post would be your favorite. O.K. it got the most comments so far.

And I even love the look of the window, if it's a window. Just super! Happy Saturday!

VP said...

Quite a difference indeed. I always like your adobe photos, they look so different from any other building.

It is a nice glimpse of a rustic building.

Kate said...

Looks like the windows are boarded up, too. Wouldn't it be great to know the history of the building and the people who had lived there?

Wonderful old gate, the many beauties of Santa Fe lie in those old adobes and gates.

I love the old wooden doors...
Hope your not stuck in the computer lab ALL day- it looks like it's going to be a gorgeous day!

The rustic doors do look really cool. I am interested in the window shutters. That is a window, no? Is the place boarded up while the owners are away? Those stick and branch shutters are one of a kind.

Jacob said...

It does have that worn, weathered look about it - both the door and the building...I like, a lot!

Lúcia said...

It's amazing how everything in adobe is so beautiful!
Have a good Saturday Randy! ;-)

wow great blue sky and contrast!

This one is tack sharp and those adobe colors really do contrast nicely with the blue sky. The aged and the gate are excellent pieces of the composition too.

That gate has a lot of character!

I love the beautiful old wood.

RedPat said...

Love this very old door on its very old building... Santa Fe is full of rich architecture not found anywhere else.

Bises,

clairz said...

Amazing window treatment, too. Adobe homes are so unique.

Carola Bartz said...

This is such a wonderful shot - and definitely represents the Santa Fe that I love.

JM said...

Needless to say I love it! :-)

AB said...

You have some great old buildings in Santa Fe

Doug Hickok said...

Perfect composition, so nicely balanced. These old adobe doors and windows are fabulous.

Magpie said...

I'm torn...I like the age of this gate, but it's just screaming for some of that beautiful Santa Fe blue paint. Preservation is a good thing too.

Linda said...

It's hard to imagine this ever having been new, but it's more beautiful this way.
