Maybe Someday Soon

Ever since I moved here in 2007 and the Railyard started to become a reality, there has been talk of a theater opening next to one of the building. First it started with a big hole being dug, it's still there. Now they moved to placing this sign on the fence surrounding the hole. Someday it will come.

Pinhole Exhibit

I wish I could have taken all of you with me yesterday for this wonderful exhibit. If you are a fan of Pinhole Photography this is the show for you. There was some great art and past Pinhole camera's on display, even some really creative cameras. Yesterday was opening day and it will be here until the end of October with some opportunities to even make your own camera.

It's Growing Time at the Farmer's Market

"I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow." -

Busy Bee's

These wonderful beeswax candle can be found at our local Farmer's Market and are made by Buckin Bee. They also have the best locally made honey that I have ever tasted made from their own bees.

Time For An Outdoor Lunch

Walking past the Draft Station you see more and more people sitting outdoors enjoying some their lunchtime. Later in the afternoon that was not the case but we still got no rain.

Art is Everywhere.

There are even some pieces in the shadows in addition to these three sculptures. All of this art sits in front of the Eldorado Hotel. I might have to spend some time looking inside to see what else there is to find inside.

Santa Fe Convention Center

This is only the southeast corner of our convention center. As you can see it was designed in the Pueblo style that is common here in New Mexico. Not only is this a convention center, on the other corner to the east there is a community art gallery.

Bode's General Store in Abiquiu has been around since 1893. It's one of my favorite places to either grab some goodies before hiking in the area or to eat at there "kitchen." Today weather permitting, I am heading to Ghost Ranch for a hike. I just might have to stop here for a breakfast burrito.

Beyond the Coyote Fence

This tree was blooming and reaching past the Coyote fence. The fence makes for a nice backdrop for everything from snow to blooming trees.

On a side note, I am going to see Rickie Lee Jones tonight for the first time so I may not be stopping by your blogs today. Until tomorrow all!

Enjoying the Tunes

This guy found a spot in the shade to listen to the guitar player on the bench. I love music in the plaza, but you wouldn't believe how many people complain about this. The merchants are one group. They claim it keeps people from their shops, really?

Spring is Everywhere

You know it's really Spring when the trees have bloomed and more and more tourist are mingling around town. To top it off we had snow yesterday morning. Fortunately it melted away by 11:00. We were happy for the moisture.

I found this one the side of a gallery just off of Canyon Road. It's the start of another week. Lucky for me it's only going to be a four day work week. Come on Thursday!

Shadows on the O'Keeffe

I don't think this would look as good when the tree is full.

The Hawai'i Pictures and ...

There are two wonderful exhibits at the Georgia O'Keeffe museum. One is Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams, The Hawai'i Pictures.  The second is Abiquiu Views, which is one that I am really looking forward to. For more information on these two exhibits, click here.

The other day there were a few school tours around the plaza museums. On my way back to work I caught sight of this reflection in this gallery's window. Have a happy Friday!

Neighborhood Dragon

This big metal dragon as you can see sits on top of the Ellsworth Gallery.  This gallery sits across from the new hotel that is still in construction. Imagine seeing this view out of your hotel room.

At Days End

I like the golden light that comes at the end of the day. I caught this view as I was leaving work recently and thought it was perfect for the end of the week. Happy Friday everyone, make it a good one.

Seeing Red

Work is still being done on the new Drury Hotel near downtown.  It's scheduled to open this Summer so workers are scurring around everyday in an effort to get it ready. This part still needs a little work.

In the Light

More and more people are starting to come out into the plaza to spend their afternoons.  Even this little guy thought he would take a bath while his owner played his guitar.

Theme Day: Triangles

Theme Day is upon us. This month's theme seemed to elude me no matter how hard I searched.  Yesterday while out on my afternoon walk I came across these upside down triangles made out of vines on the porch of the Verve Gallery. I guess it pays not to look too hard.
