Old Wall


This old wall on Delgado Street is one of the most photographed walls in our city. You can find it on cards and postcard and probably some galleries but always in color. We had some snow in the morning so I took a quick trip after work.

No wonder it's photographed, it's absolutely gorgeous.

The temperature plummeted at last here! Cold... but still not one single snowflake even though snow was in the forecast...

I can see why. Where's my camera?

I like the B&W.
Well done.

Kate said...

The black and white photo is wonderful and a nice departure from the traditional snapshot of color for this wall.

Lowell said...

I like the b&w. Puts much more drama into shot. I can see you got a little snow. Don't slip and break your neck!

This looks even medieval!
God bless you!

So unusual! I bet you do have some gorgeous shots in color, too.

EG Wow said...

I can certainly see why it's often photographed! The shape is pleasing.

It looks very well in B&W. We also have snow, at last! Since yesterday - 30 cm!

Sharon said...

Wow, I can see why this is the most photographed wall, it is a perfect Santa Fe scene. Love this photo.

Ron said...

I like this. The black and white was a good choice.

Luis Gomez said...

Very nice Randy. Thank you.

VP said...

I am not a fan of B&W and, if I remember well, these colors are too remarkable to end up in a grey scale...

Teresa said...

This is really cool. I have seen it on google images quite a few times...although not in B/W...you may be the first!

Jarart said...

I think it looks great in B&W!

Magpie said...

It makes a beautiful picture in black and white with the snow. It is a great photo opportunity.

becky said...

I did not know this! I like it is black & white. It's a gorgeous day out there- enjoy Randy!

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

That IS a wonderful wall! I like it in B&W. But I'm sure it would also look spectacular in color.

Halcyon said...

This is perfect scene for b&w. It has that old-timey feel. Really nice!

Sandy said...

lovely old wall. Great picture. =)

RedPat said...

I can certainly understand why it is shot so often! Very moody in B & W!

Nadezda said...

I like this photo but I am surprised, you have snow in your contry ?

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Love this shot, Randy! Please come on over to enter it in my 'Weekly Top Shot.' We're on Week #16 and I'd love to see you share with me and my readers! Here's this weeks' link: http://www.theviewfromrighthere.com/blog/?p=6115

Wow, this is a fabulous wall.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Great shot, Randy. We got about 8" of snow in the past 24 hours. :)

parker said...

A wonderful take on an 'Old Friend'!

NixBlog said...

Lovely capture. The B&W enhances the "old" look...

Carola Bartz said...

This is exactly the architecture that I like so much. I don't even need a color photo to imagine the adobe. The old door is fabulous - of course it is so often photographed because it is so darn beautiful. I like your b&w capture.

I would not have expected to see something like this in B&W look so good, but I love it!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I can see why Randy, it looks so typically what most people would think of as Santa Fe!

Kathy said...

Nice in the black and white.

Quynh Le said...

The B&W goes really well with the season.
