Can You Hear Me Now.

While at the Farmers Market I noticed this guy on his cell phone standing next to the Railyard Performance Center. It made me think of the Verizon commercial. Have a happy weekend.

Pig Planter

If you like color you can always put some Geraniums in a colorful Mexican pig planter like this one. Just one of the many things someone could purchase at the Garden Show last weekend.

Balloon Poodle Anyone?

If you want a poodle or maybe a flower this guy can make it for you. He is at the Farmer's Market every weekend. It always make you smile to see the kids walking our with their balloon creations.

Bus Stop

This bus stop is down the street from where I live. I like the way the tile work looks like a city map. Have a good start to your week.

Isn't it wonderful how clouds add to a photograph. Had I taken this shot of my favorite grocery store without them I think it would have made for a boring shot of a grocery store.

Yes it is.

It was a cold day Spring day today and the wind was kicking up. Then came the rain and as the temperature started to drop, then came the snow. Hopefully it will be short lived. Have a great weekend everyone!

New Mexico School for the Deaf.

The NM School for the Deaf is not too far from where I live. It's a pretty big campus and they are currently working on some of buildings so I decided to shoot the entrance. Here's a little history: While the New Mexico Legislature officially established the New Mexico School for the Deaf in 1887, it was deaf pioneer Lars Larson who first planted the school's historic roots. In 1885, using their own funds, Lars and his wife Belle began teaching deaf students in a small adobe house in Santa Fe. The deaf couple dreamed of establishing a permanent school where none had existed, a place where deaf and hard of hearing children could receive a quality education comparable to that of hearing children. This dream soon became a reality, and for 125 years, the New Mexico School for the Deaf has been making a difference in the lives of deaf children and their families. NMSD also has the distinction of being the only land grant school for the deaf in the country.

The Road Home

On the way home I was taken aback by the view a few evenings ago. I couldn't believe how much snow we still have. I just love living here.

All Show but No Action.

On Sunday I was on my way to a flea market and all excited because I had not been to this one before. On the way out I saw this gloomy wall of clouds headed our way and what did we get? A sprinkle, it was all show and not action. Needless to say the sprinkle scared all the sellers away. Maybe next week.

"The Circles of our Cultures" mural was painted in 2000 by Santa Fe Community Youth Mural Project. It's near a park that I have been to a few times but missed this beautiful art work until this weekend.

Who's Your Neighbor?

While traveling around Santa Fe you will see an occasional Tee Pee sitting out in the middle of someones land. They make for a great place to sleep when you want to be out in the cool night air.

Spring Snow?

Not Really. This is the snow still left over from the Winter. This shot was taken while on my way home from Santa Fe Community College.

Santa Fe Wall

Many homes here in Santa Fe have walls made of adobe surrounding the front yards. Many have beautiful gardens hidden behind them and others entertaining areas.

On of my favorite shopping centers in town is the Sanbusco marketplace. You can normally find my at Borders on the weekends checking out the new book releases.

Almost Forgotten

While looking through my files I found this photo of this Pink bike complete with Pink backpack from out last snow fall. I remember think that this person was brave to ride in the cold. I can't say that its over, we have had snow in May before.

Basilica Candles

These candles caught my attention from the entry way in St.Francis Basilica. They are located in a small chapel used for quite prayer.

Sweet Sound.

While standing on the corner of yesterday's post I heard a very beautiful voice singing loudly. As I looked over I saw this pair of musicians playing. The woman on the guitar had such a beautiful voice that needed no microphone. I hope to see them again I could just sit and listen the day away.

On the Corner

On the corner of San Fransisco street and Don Gaspar you will find on of my favorite places to eat. Upstairs is the San Fransisco Street Bar and Grill. Good salads and burgers.

Flags for Easter

The these flags were placed in front of the Basilica during Holy Week. They didn't compare to the decorating that was going on inside. Unfortunately I didn't make in.

Wednesday, April 7, 2010


This was at the entrance of a store called Poem near the plaza. They have a variety of gifts for your favorite someone or your home.

Spring is Coming.

That's what everyone around Santa Fe keeps saying. I finally saw a little evidence of it close to the plaza. When you see Spring flowers does it make you smile?

Flying Prayer Flags

On the corner of my street is a Buddhist Center. Shortly before the last snow fall melted away the sky was so Blue and it made for a nice backround color for these Prayer Flags. Here's hoping for a good week.

Many families like this one carried crosses while walking the pilgrimage to the Santuario in Chimayo on Good Friday. Some crosses were even bigger but big or small people carried them with a whole lot of faith and devotion.

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Easter!

Good Friday

"During Holy Week thousands of pilgrims journey to El Santuario de Chimayó, a tiny shrine in northern New Mexico. They leave from their homes, or their cars parked on the roadside, to walk 10, 20, 30, or even 100 miles to reach Chimayo. In the darkness before Good Friday, pilgrims line the highways north of Santa Fe carrying crosses and glow sticks. By Easter Sunday tens of thousands of worshipers pass through the doors of the little chapel, built almost 200 years ago on a site that is sacred to many Pueblo Indians and descendants of Spanish settlers." It took hours to get there and the line to get into the chapel was so long. It really was amazing to see the strength of the faith that brought all of these people here yesterday.

Big Sky

Some days when I want to get away from it all I can drive only 5-10 min south of town and see views such as this. This reminds me of a watercolor painting. Make the best of the weekend everyone!

Theme Day: Red

It is theme day once again here on City Daily Photo. Our theme this month is Red. While on my way home one day the sun was setting and it made the red color in this sign glare right at you advertising all the food stops. Imagine my surprise when this red semi-truck came into frame just before I took the shot. Lucky I guess.
