End the week with a Song!

The is the Grannia Griffith Story. They were on shortly after the DJ played at the SF Reporter Music festival. I really enjoyed there music but most of all I really liked her skirt. Take a close look to see what it is made of.

By the way I am curious if anyone has tried the "Dynamic Views" on the Blogger template designer yet. I am anxious to hear your feedback. Oh and have a wonderful weekend!

All that Glitters

While some people were busy listening to the music this little guy was busy picking up glitter that was all over the ground. He would then run off and throw it on the little girls in the crowd.

Flowers in the Sun

It's still a little warm in the middle of the day. There were quite a few interesting umbrellas out in about at the art festival.

Pictures of You

I caught this artist taking photos of her fellow artist doing a performance piece in their booth. I'm sure the performance piece had something to do with the drawings on the walls.

This was the guy who was playing the music that got people up and one there feet at the festival. He mixed music with some really good beats and he was interesting to watch as well. I hope your music soundtrack this week is fun and makes you dance.

I Dance For You

These two were dancing at the art and music festival last weekend. When I saw these two I was reminded of a quote by Martha Graham "Every dance is a kind of fever chart, a graph of the heart."

It was a joy to watch them, free and having fun without worry of what others thought.

Have a great Sunday!

Gotta Dance

Sometimes you just have to dance but you also have to make sure to have the right outfit too. Happy Saturday!

No, Sir Elton John was not in town. This was one of the artist at the Santa Fe Reporters Free Arts and Music Festival last Sunday which took place at the Railyard. I caught a few interesting shots and will be sharing them with you. Big plans for your weekend? Whatever you do I hope it's something that makes you happy!

Time for a Game

I caught these shot near downtown. These guys were playing checkers and for their game pieces they were using beer bottle caps. This was inspired by a series that was posted on Portland Daily Photo in August by Lynette.

Oh Well

I hope this isn't a sign of how the week will be. I found this in the railyard area yesterday when I went to a music festival put on by our local weekly paper the Santa Fe Reporter. There was wonderful music, dancing and art. Hopefully it will become and annual event. Hoping you all have a good start to your week.

Found Balance

I caught this at a campsite that I came across while out hiking. It reminded me of this quote:
"Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony." Thomas Merton

Happy Sunday!

Is it Ready?

I was at Sunflower Market the other day and I saw a line of people waiting their turn to get their chilies roasted. I caught this little guy patiently waiting and watching as the roaster was spinning. The smell was heavenly.

Thoughts of a Ride

After I took this shot of this BMW bike in front of Legends gallery I noticed this young woman in the window looking at the bike I was shooting. I wonder if she was daydreaming of going for a ride.

I hope you have wonderful things planned for your weekend. I'm off on the High Road Studio tour. It's a long drive but you get the chance to see some great art and meet the artists in their studios.

We the season has started and more and more vehicles around town are starting to show off their owners favorite teams. I couldn't miss this one on the way to work yesterday. You may not have something like this on your car but do you have a favorite football team?

Not sure if everyone was aware but there is a new member to the CDP family. SanTanValleyDailyPix is a very nice blog, if you have a chance stop by and say hello. Welcome Teresa!

Doodlets is a great store to find interesting and unusual gifts. I really like the painted screen door and they always have wonderful window displays.

Nature's Design

I am not sure what they are called but I do love these summer flowers. Click on the photo for a better view and check out the design. I think Mother Nature would have made a fantastic Graphic Designer. Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday.

Sporty MG

I love old convertibles. They always remind me of the old films like when Grace Kelly drove one in "To Catch a Thief." I caught this one near the Farmers Market last weekend.

Taking A Break

This is the patio of Downtown Subscription where Kate and I met. The were chairs in the patio but I think this guy was taking a quick break to read the newspaper.

I came home a little under the weather today and I hope that I made it to your blog. If not I do apologize and I will try to catch up with you on Friday night.

I hope you all have a super weekend!

Reading Outdoors

There are many pleasures in life. Good food, a nice glass of your favorite beverage. For some it might be a bike ride, cruising town in a convertible. And then there is Art, Music and for this guy it was reading. I love to read but this year I seem to nod off after work and visiting your blogs (Lord knows I won't give that up!) and homework. I am curious, what is your favorite book or what are you currently reading now. I am trying to start "An Object of Beauty" by Steve Martin. For you readers please don't wait for my review. It could be a long long time.

Ladies and Gentlemen "My Santa Fe Kate"

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Kate a fellow CDP blogger. Most of you know her from Visual St. Paul and My Santa Fe Kate . It was a great time learning more about one another and talking blog talk. I really hope that she will be back soon so that I can share more of Santa Fe with her. After our afternoon together I was reminded of a quote that I heard recently:
"Friendship Is A Treasured Gift
That Gives Our Heart A Lift
A Blessing We Just Cannot Do Without
Because Friendship Is What
Living Is All About …"

Walking on a Rainbow

While out and about this weekend I saw these colorful sneakers pass me by. I could not resist taking a shot when I saw them later on. Question, would you were these? Don't know that I would.

Sunday Color

"I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one."
~Edna St. Vincent Millay

This was taken at a gallery along Canyon Road. Have a peaceful Sunday.

Across the street from the Morgan Crow gallery is the Treehouse. I love this patio area where you can enjoy some great teas and watch the art lovers walk by. Come and share a cup a tea and some dessert.
