Entrada


At first sight this look like the entrance of a church. It is in fact the front entrance to a gallery on Canyon Road. Wishing everyone a peaceful Sunday.

Fire Update: As of a few hours ago the first fire was reported to be 55% contained and the second and largest fire is 6% contained. We have a chance of rain over the next few days. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Beautiful. I would love to step in there and I always thought of a gallery. Santa Fe must be full of them.

Geraniums and adobe seem to go together (hollyhocks, too). The fires are terrible events and I hope that rain arrives soon for your area!

That is a nice looking entryway. Thanks for the fire update. I hope the rain does happen for you folks in New Mexico.

Every one in a while you stumble upon one of these hidden away gems.

That's a very 'Santa Fe' kind of entrance Randy, very pretty. It sounds like the fires are still a massive problem, I so wish I could send some of the heavy rain that we've been having here, I hope you will be able to tell us soon about your own rain.

I like the colors here...a bit atypical for the building.

Sending thought of rain to your locale and keeping my fingers crossed.

Absolutely lovely entrance with that Virgin. Love the lettering against the adobe.

What a very, very lovely spot! Entrada is one of the many words we have in common with spanish.

A lovely entrance! Glad the fires are being more contained.

Nice place and corners. I wish you a fire due to rain, but not how many we have this year. They are already flooded some places. Greetings! Peter.

EG Wow said...

I'm glad the word "contained" can now be used and not just "out of control."

Lúcia said...

Beautiful "entrada" (we use the same word in Portuguese)!
I hope the rain can definetely contain this fire. Gingers crossed.
Have a good Sunday Randy! ;-)

Cute entrance. We have a chance of rain too, although with ours we gets lots of lightning. WIshing you rain and no fire!

Regina K said...

Oh this looks so inviting. Is that Jemez that is only 6% contained? Can't tell you how many times I have camped and visited those mountains.
