Happy Halloween

No matter how you celebrate Halloween or even if you don't I hope that your day is colorful and you get more treats than tricks.

Canyon Road Paint Out X

This is the last of the artist shots from the Paint Out. The artist in yellow stood out as much as some of the painters.

My Lightroom presentation went really well thank you to those who asked. I was impressed by all of the photograph slideshows that my classmates presented. If you have Adobe Lightroom classes available in your city I would say go for it. It's easy and a fun program to learn.

Canyon Road Paint Out IX

This painter found his inspiration in the music he was listening to. He must wear these pants everytime he paints.

Canyon Road Paint Out VIII

I hope you all have not grown tired of these shots only a few more. This artist is doing a great job of painting what looks like a view from Aspen Trail.
Tonight is the last night of my class, my Lightroom slideshow is ready to be fired up, wish me luck. Have a great start to you week.

Canyon Road Paint Out VII

Now this is one artist tool I wish I could create with. Painting with oils and acrylics is great but I love the rich tones that you can create with Oil Pastels.

Canyon Road Paint Out VI

I was surprised to see these two. You might remember them from this shot in 2011.

Canyon Road Paint Out V

Now this really can't be easy. This young man was fun to watch as he painted his self portrait.

Canyon Road Paint Out IV

I spent quite a bit of time watching this painter while he worked. He made it look so easy but I know if I tried to paint like him the end results would not look as good.

A very colorful interpretation of our Autumn colors. I hope your all having a good week, I'll be back soon.

Canyon Road Paint Out II

Here is another painter that I caught near a sculpture garden. He was painting one of the near buildings nearby. ** It's that time of the semester again. I am taking a short Adobe Lightroom class and finals are next Monday. I may be a little scarce in my visits while I try to prepare my slideshow final.

Me and My Shadow

Yesterday was the big Canyon Road Paint Out. It is one of my favorite days of the year. Artists are outside of the galleries plein air painting and there is music provided by the kids of the Santa Fe School District at every stop. I caught this shot outside of a gallery. The title came to me as soon as I saw the flowers shadow. This week I will be bringing you photos from the event so stayed tuned.

Standing on Another Corner

This was the north facing view the other day as I was standing on the corner of Grant and Palace Avenue.
I shot this shortly before Autumn started to set in.

Watching the World Go By

The other day while walking through town I happened to look up and see this young man. There are a few restaurants in this building so he must have been taking a break.

Have A Seat

This is one bench that I would have love to see sitting on my front porch, how about you?

There I am.

Here I am in the same spot as yesterdays shot. As you the Fall colors really bring a pop of color to the area. So which do you like best, Summer or Fall?

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Where Am I.

This is the Chama River. This view of the river can be found just north of Abiquiu. This is where you will find me today. I will touring artist studios and taking shots of the area. This shot was taken over the summer and I am hoping to catch it today with some Fall colors.

Colorful Sculpture

This beautiful sculpture sits at the entrance of Canyon Road in front of the Pippin Contemporary Gallery. It would make a great addition to someones garden, don't you think? This weekend is the Abiquiu Studio Tour, one of my favorites. I hope your Friday is a great one.

Fellow Photographer

As I was walking towards The Windy River Trading Company I caught sight of a fellow photographer who was looking for some good shots.

Color and Shadow

Shot on the wall of an art gallery close to my neighborhood.

So I know where you are.

It's fun to watch tourist and the things they were. I guess she wanted to make sure she could find him in a crowd.

People Watching

Now that all of our festivals and craft shows have passed the plaza has been pretty slow. Every now and then a bus load of tourist will come by. This foursome were also just passing through. Get a load of that top hat. Have a great start to your week.

Rural New Mexico

Every year while drive along the Taos High Road Studio Tour we pass this area. I always love this spot because it's usually where I can find some Fall colors. The shrub with a little touch of yellow in the foreground is called Chamisa in these parts (it's also known as Rabbitbush) and at this time of year it makes allergy suffers cringe.

Flowers and Vigas

I shot this close to one of my favorite shops in the Taos plaza. I will be making another trip up there tomorrow, I can't wait. Wishing you all a happy Friday.

Theme Day: Details

Theme Day has come again to City Daily Photo and this months theme is "Details." They can be found in everything you see. I was lucky enough to capture the details in this young mans ring and cuff bracelet while he was shopping the Native American vendors near the plaza. That is one thing I do love about Native American jewelry, the details. To see more wonderful photographs from around the globe click here.
