Where Indeed.

I was once told by a photography teacher "you have to keep your eyes open or you just might miss something." I almost missed this interesting question.

Color and Shadows

This is the side of the New Mexico Museum of Art. I was out and about as always during my lunch hour when I looked across the street and noticed the shadows from the vigas on the adobe. The color was a compliment.

Shadows and Skater

The other day I was walking along the river when this skater happened by. I like his Johnny Cash t-shirt. Enjoy your Tuesday.

Sorry for the dark shot. They don't allow flash photography in the basilica. I had to stop by inside real quick this weekend and wanted to get a shot of the rose window from the inside. You will have to enlarge the photo but I like the message right under the balcony. "Love one another constantly." It's a holiday for us but for those of you who have to work I hope you have a great start to your week.

Basilica Window

This is the the stained glass window that you see at the entrance of the basilica's window. I hope you all have a very peaceful Sunday.

Blue Horse

I could not find the name of this sculpture but it sure drew my attention with it's color. I can tell you that it is made of metal and is a newly installed piece on Canyon Road. Happy Saturday everyone.

Neon Reflection

I almost forgot about this shot. I spotted this reflection on the window of a laundry service establishment while I was in Albuquerque. I was drawn to the neon in the window. The rest was just a bonus. I will be away from my computer until Sunday but I have post scheduled while I'm away. I have a friend coming in from Phoenix for a few days. She's needing to escape the heat. Wishing you all a great Friday and a happy weekend.

Singing for Tips

When your walking in the plaza during the lunch hours you will always finds musicians singing. These two had nice singing voices.

Drying Laundry?

That is what it looked like to me when I saw this shirt hanging off this motorcycle but you never know.

Hint of Color

After work on Friday I went to several museums that were offering free admission to New Mexico residents. As I was leaving the New Mexico History Museum I saw this wonderful shadow from the tree and a few bits of color on the window and bushes. Wishing you all a great start to your week.

People You Meet.

One thing I love about this time of year is how many people you meet as your walking around the city. Not only can they be colorful people but they also wear some colorful hats too.

A Day in the Park

What a great way to spend the afternoon don't you think. This week I started spending my lunch hours walking around the plaza and not in my old work neighborhood. I recent got a promotion at work and now my office is only a block away from the plaza. It's been quite the adjustment but the walks are sure nice.

Walking in the Rain

This young man crossed my path as I was waiting for the light to change. I wish I could pull off a snazzy hat like this. Tonight is the final night for my class. I should be back on my regular schedule as to tomorrow. Have a great Wednesday.

Peaceful Sunday

First let me wish all of you moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day. I hope you have a very peaceful and fun filled day. I was in Albuquerque yesterday and shot this as I was walking down Central (Old Route 66). The most exciting part of my day was at the end. I was having dinner at a restaurant and two guys decided to rob the place at gun point. It was all very quite and the young woman at the register just handed over the cash and they were out the door. Most of the people in the place including myself had no idea this was happening until it had ended. Ever had that feeling that you should have stayed home? On another note, I am down the to the last few days before my project is due. Please forgive my absence on your blogs during this time. I will try but can't promise that I can visit. I will still be posting so please stop by. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Art Ads

I can't remember the name of the gallery on Canyon Road. They are the only ones who have this type of banners outside of their gallery.

Blue Sky Friday

Another week has come to an end thank goodness. Here is another shot that I caught while around downtown. I hope everyone has a happy weekend doing something you love.

Color of the Day.

Oh who am I kidding, it's the color of the day everyday around Santa Fe. I think they should have done the window trim in the same color.

Hot Painting

I caught this shot at a local gallery. I was shooting the shadow and the painting and was surprised by the heater after I downloaded the shot. Happy Wednesday.

St. Henry Miller

I caught this on the side of a building at the Railyard. I guess someone is a big fan of Henry Miller.

King Label

A good hat to start the week with don't you think? I caught this guy in front of the Farmer's Market building juggling for some kids.

Big Sky, Small City

I caught this a few weekends back. I was walking around downtown past this ally and I noticed these great clouds just passing by. It's always good to just stop for a moment and take it all in.

Garden Flags

It's Saturday, time for a visit to the Farmer's Market. Not only can you find some great fresh veggies but you can also pick up some of these great flags for your garden. Happy Saturday.

Sculpture and Blossoms

I took this one a few weeks back. This sculpture which I don't have a name for sits outside of a gallery that's not far from my house.

These can be found at the Farmer's Market every Saturday. Take your pick. Oh and they have some savory ones too like Cheese and Green Chile.

Theme Day: Bakeries

It's theme day here on CDP and this month's theme is Bakeries. This the back side of the Sage Bakehouse here in Santa Fe. I must confess that I have not tried there goods yet but now I am tempted. I also must confess that I was drawn to the reflection on the window and that's another reason why I shot the back side.
