Where Will It Take You?

The New Year is coming and as I was walking by these tracks I was wondering where the the New Year will take me and all of us as photographers for that matter. Thanks to everyone who has stopped by this year. I look forward to all of my fellow bloggers photographs in the coming year. Best of everything to everyone!

Guadalupe at the Farmers Market

This painting hangs above the entrance of the Farmers Market building. Around Santa Fe she is everywhere.

Road to Taos II

Further up the highway it looked like there was more snowfall in this area. In the background is Truchas peak. The sun has been out for the last few days so I am sure most of the ground snow is gone.

Road to Taos

I shot this one just as we were leaving Santa Fe. Thats the Sangre De Cristos in the backround. And let me tell you it was a cold one that day.

Christmas Eve at the Taos Plaza.

I shot this while in Taos on my way to the Taos Pueblo to witness the Procession of the Virgin Mary. I wish we were able to take photos, it really was something to see.

Christmas Evening

Yesterday before the day was over we traveled to Chimayo to see the lights on the Santuario. I had always seen postcards and yesterday was the first time I took my own photo.

Merry Christmas from Santa Fe

This stores window display really caught my eye as I was walking by. Could it have been the pink Jesus? Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas full of peace, love and happiness.

Christmas Eve

"Night of Las Posadas," this is the story of Mary and Joseph going from inn to inn trying to find a place to stay. The weekend before Christmas there is a reenactment of the Posadas through the plaza ending at the Palace of the Governor's where a manger scene is set up.

Winter Plaza

Its almost all gone but it's still a beautiful one to post just before Christmas. We are actually supposed to get more snow today in fact.

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Decorating Downtown for Christmas.

When walking through the plaza you will see decorations along the portals and windows.

Santa on the Plaza

This Santa was not giving gifts way but raffling them off on the plaza. He was selling tickets to the Native Americans who were selling their artwork at the Palace of the Governor's. Beats shopping!

A Sculpture for Sunday

This beautiful piece was down the walkway from yesterdays post on the IAIA campus.

Saturday, December 19, 2009

Beautiful Sculpture

I love this sculpture and if I was'nt in such a hurry I would have a name of the sculpture and the name of the artist. This lovely piece is on the IAIA campus. Maybe if someone from here sees the post they'll comment on name of the piece and the artist.

Melting Away.

Our snow is going away and so far there is none in the forecast. I doubt we're going to have a White Christmas this year. Wishing everyone a good weekend.

Faralito Lit Path

This view was from the IAIA campus. I wish I could have seen it at night when the Farlitos were lit. I am sure it was beautiful.

New Construction

This new building is at the Institute of American Indian Art College. Not sure what it is going to be. We were there for the Holiday art sale this past weekend.

High Desert Winter

There is something beautiful about the desert in winter.

Outside of the Art department on the back side of the college is this mosaic. Looks Aztec to me but I could be wrong.

Peace Bug

It's what we might all need right now. Just a little Peace in the world.

Saturday, December 12, 2009

Don't Sit Down

While leaving the college the other day I noticed this unusual corner bench. Don't think I would sit there at the time. Maybe after the snow melts.

Just Yesterday Morning

Along with a good part of the country we got snow from the winter storm that passed through Santa Fe. For those who did, stay warm. Have a good weekend everyone.

Wine Anyone?

La Chiripada, one of my favorite New Mexico wineries. I have yet to have a bad glass of wine from here. This winery is locate north of Santa Fe in Dixon. They also have a tasting room in Taos. Cheers!

No Parking

At least not in this old garage. The house doesn't look much better either. Have a great week everyone.

Fall comes to Black Mesa

Another of my favorite spots, in fact its on my way home from Abiquiu. I can't wait to shoot it after the next big snow fall.

Quiet Peace

There is some peaceful about a quiet road out in the country. It's easy to get lost in your thoughts.

Abiquiu Landscape

Near the Chama river you will find beautiful landscape such as this. I haven't been many places but I do know its one of my favorites.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Fall at Chama River

One of my favorite spots.

Wednesday, December 2, 2009


This Buddha was sitting in an artist garden in Abiquiu. The garden had gone dormant for the season but there was still something peaceful and beautiful about it.

Theme Day: Waiting

And now the final theme day of the year. Our final theme day is "Waiting." I struggled with this one until I was awaken by the most unusual noise. I looked out and saw this Raven calling out to her mate. She waited until he flew by and they flew off into the morning sky. It was really nice to see.

Please take some time to visit my friends throughout the world.

Ready for Winter

Most of the plants are ready for Winter to come sleeping until the next Spring comes.

Aging Red

I find it amazing that the colors of somethings seem to pop more as the item ages. While walk under this apple tree I was taking by the old red apples that remained on this tree.

Friday, November 27, 2009

Be Thankful for the Past.

Thinking of all of things that most of us have photographed if it wasn't for those who came before us we would not have scenes like this. Have a great weekend everyone!

Resting by the River.

Wishing everyone a happy day full of friends, family and lots of love.

This should be the state color you can find it everywhere. In a few months we will have Turquoise colored license plates to commemorate New Mexicos 100th year of being a state. I will bring you a photo of that in January when I come across the first one.

Adobe and Chile

Click on this one for a better view. Two things you will always find in New Mexico, Adobe walls and Chile hanging out the dry. Today I had my first taste of the New Mexican version of mashed potatoes and gravy, it was Pork in Red Chile instead of gravy served on mashed potatoes. Boy was it good!

Buddha with an Apple

This was outside of an artist studio in Dixon. This reminds me of the opening scene to a movie or maybe a story.

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Over Here

While on a studio tour most of the artists had small flags. This artist chose something a little more artistic.

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Looking in the Press

While at a studio opening, there were some guys making Apple Cider in a Cider Press. I like the colors in the remaining apple flesh.

Fridays are Golden

And so are these leaves. I just thought I would continue the theme from yesterdays post. Have a great weekend everyone.

Autumn in Abiquiu

Nothing like Autumn in my favorite Northern New Mexico town.

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Chama River

After leaving the studio from yesterdays post. I came across this spot by the Chama river. I love this area.

Going for a Ride.

Recently we went north to Abiquiu for the Studio Tour. At one of the stops one of the artist truck was parked just waiting for someone to take it for a spin.

Morning Surprise

Woke up to a surprise yesterday morning. We're supposed to get more but we'll see.
Have a good week everyone.

Flowers on the Cross

This cross sits right in front of the Santuario de Chimayo. I thought it a fitting picture for a Sunday.

Hanging On

While in Dixon I was walking through an Apple orchard I noticed these two apples hanging on to this bare tree. Kind of feels like my week, just hanging on till Friday. Happy Weekend everyone.

Peaceful Moments

Nothing like sitting by a river and listening to the water flowing by. This was taken in Dixon last weekend during the art studio tour. I love finding spots like this.
