Happy New Year

"Prospero Ano Nuevo" means Happy New Year in Spanish. I shot this window last weekend while out shopping in Taos. I want to wish everyone a New Year full of Peace, Love and Happiness.

Lizard and a Virgin

You will have to click on the photo for a better view. While walking the neighborhood I came upon this door with the Virgin Mary carved on it. I thought the lizard was an interesting piece along side the Virgin.

Lonely Park

With all of the snow, there is no one playing in the park. There was no additional snow today but we are expecting more tomorrow.

Skull and Antlers

I happen to be out shopping today and I noticed this skull with a bunch of antlers with snow all over them. Very Georgia O'keeffe if you ask me. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Turquoise Skull

This skull was fully decorated in Turquoise stones and ready to be hung in someones home. You might have to click on the photo for a better view.

Emotional Baggage

Now that is showing it off. This little Volkswagon Beetle has been traveling around town lately and I did not have my camera with me when I saw it. Finally I was able to capture it recently. Pretty clever don't you think?

Spanish for lantern, a common Christmas decor in the Southwest. In some towns they are called Luminarias. There are the plastic ones with a light in them or the real ones are made of paper sacks, sand and a small candle inside. Merry Christmas everyone!

Just In Time

Looks like its going to be a White Christmas for us this year. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. I am just excited about the short work week.

Sunday, December 23, 2007


This is what we woke up to yesterday morning. It wasn't expected so it was a nice Surprise.

Christmas Snow

We got more snow again yesterday. At night the sky was so white it looked like the sun was coming up in the middle of the night.

Train Revolution

This graffiti filled caboose is ready for the revolution, whatever that is. This car sits just outside of the the Borders Books and Music store. Have a great weekend everyone!

White on White

This shot was taken at the Santa Fe National Cemetary. As you can see all of the head stones are white and with the snow on the ground they still seem to stand out. Not as much as the Pine tree in the backround but they are still there to be seen as a reminder.

Do Not Enter?

Click on the photo and you will see the "Do Not Enter" sign at the entrance of the plaza. By this photo it looks like its for the plaza area but it really is a one way street so it is there to keep drivers from going the wrong way.

Snowy Lights

These lights will never get warm enough to melt the snow.

Snowy Plaza

This is the Plaza in downtown Santa Fe. It was pretty cold out but there were people milling around and shopping. Hope everyone has a good start to their week.

Skulls and Snow

I found these skills sitting on an evaporative cooler partially covered in snow. Funny how the appearance of certain things change when covered in snow.

Saturday, December 15, 2007

Collected Works

One of my favorite stores in the downtown area is the Collected Works Bookstore. They have a great New Mexico book section. Its fun to find a good book there and head to your favorite coffee shop or park and enjoy your new find.

Cold is a State of Mind

Maybe this Buddha can't feel the cold but even with a heavy coat you can feel it when the wind blows.

Crossing the Water

The snowy creek was very peaceful and I loved the way the shadows of the trees crossed over the creek and continued across the snow.

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Empty Table

This table is close to the Santa Fe ski basin. I don't people will be sitting here for awhile.

White Beauty

While hiking I was amazed at how white the trees were. Then I realized it was the ice that made them look so white. Then I thought about the weight of that ice on these trees. Trees are pretty strong.

Peaceful Sunlight

There is something peaceful about the snow. I don't think its the absence of people. Its the quiet wind, the trickle of the water under the snow. The sunlight shining through the trees.

Snow Hike

This is a road that we hike on most Sundays. Lately its been quite invigorating with the snow on the ground. We got a little snow on the mountain north of our house last night so todays hike should be interesting.

Color of Glazes

At Jackalope they sell all kinds of pottery for the inside and the outside of your home. I love the color when the sun shines on them.

Friday, December 7, 2007

Looking for Color

Well the cat wasn't looking. He was watching a dog that was walking in his direction.
There are several artists selling their wears here at Jackalope. The ornaments next to the cat were made by a glass making artist.

Sleigh Parking?

Christmas decorating is everywhere. This was in the parking lot of Jackalope.

Old Santa with his Old Bike

This is a display at Jackalope's outdoor furnishing area. He was pretty old, maybe not as old as the bike but as you can see he could use a little facial paint.

Too Much Sun

I don't think too much of this sun could be bad for you. Well maybe if you dropped it on your foot. These were at Jackalope. A great place to buy all kinds of interior and exterior home furnishings. I love the icicles too, they are melting from too much sun.

Icicles and Prayer Flags

This is the front of Maya. Its a great shop for jewelry made by different jewelry artist, clothes and some great cards.

Wishing everyone a little piece today. (Click on the photo for better look)

Frost Bit Leaves

You will probably want to click on the photo for a better look. I love the color of these leaves. I have walked past them a few times but they really stood out in the snow. I chose this photo and the red leaves to help signify the AIDs ribbon. Today is World AIDS day. This post is in honor of loved ones that I have lost.

There was something sad about this sculpture. I did like the way the snow was melting down the forehead. Speaking melting the snow is going away. Still have plenty of pictures.

Thursday, November 29, 2007


No just an old cart. This cart sits outside one of the art galleries close to my home. Its a nice old cart but it looks nicer with snow on it.

Wednesday, November 28, 2007


There was some enchanting about this door. Maybe it was just the snow falling but as I drove by I had to turn around to take this photo.

Somebody Turn on the Heat!

This is one of the little bird houses at our home. When I saw this all I could think of was some little bird wishing he had central heating.

Muddy Roads

After work the other day I drove around in the snow just to catch some shots. I love that we still have dirt roads here in Santa Fe. Not to sure how these residents felt having to drive in the mud.

Covered in White

This is my home after the evening snow. Shortly after I took this photo I left for work and it started snowing all over again. Needless to say I was pretty excited.

While We Were Sleeping.

This is what I woke up to yesterday in the morning. The snow fell off and on most of the day and we are expecting more today. Time to light the fire.

Friday, November 23, 2007

Tis the Season

Yes, its that time for holiday shopping. Stores keep opening earlier every year just to get you to come shopping. I shot this display downtown. If your going out on Black Friday, good luck.

Breaking Bread

Today people will be getting together to break bread with friends and family and giving thanks for all of the good things in life. I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving.

Make a Wish List

Camera & Darkroom is one of two camera stores in the downtown area. I resisted and didn't go in, I had to be strong. I was afraid of an impulse purchase.

Riding In Style

While walking thru downtown I spotted this classy ride parked outside of a store. If you can't ride thru the flowers you can ride with them.

A Killer Burrito

After many good reviews of the food here we decided to give it a try. Talk about killer breakfast burritos. You won't be leaving Tia Sophias hungry.

Looking For Love?

Yesterday there was a five shelter adpotion event at one of the local Yoga studios. There were all kinds of dogs and cats there. One puppy even caught our eye and might be coming to live with us. We'll know in a few days.

Loves Door

No, just a great door that I saw while walking around the neighborhood.

Friday, November 16, 2007

Dump The Pump

I love the ad on this bus stop. One thing about the state of New Mexico, they are working hard to get people to live a Green lifestyle.

Thursday, November 15, 2007


Cielo is a nice shop for bedroom and bath accessories in the Guadalupe shopping district of town.

Seeing Red

While riding by my eyes were drawn by the red leaves on this tree. Looking at the photo prior to posting it, it appears that the mailbox is looking up at the tree as if it taken by the color of it as well.

Tuesday, November 13, 2007


While walking down the road I noticed these balancing rocks close to this adobe wall. Wouldn't it be nice if work and life balance could be as easy as making rocks balance.

Going Which Way?

Not these two. I saw these two trucks on the highway when leaving Dixon and heading back to Santa Fe. Would have loved to have brought one home for a project truck.
