Top to Bottom

As I was walking back to work from a meeting I caught a glimpse of this amazing shadow. It's amazing how shadows can be so large compared to the actual object or person. Have a happy Saturday.

Styling in the Sun

This pup with style was out the other day sunning himself on the plaza. What a life. May your Friday go fast and your weekend go slow.

Afternoon Art

The weather has been great this week. Canyon Road was full of tourist and art work. I caught this yesterday on my afternoon walk.

Long Shadows

This building is on my walk path. I happened to take a later lunch hour the other day and I was able to capture these great shadows.

T-Shirts and Chile

One thing you can find in most cities is a t-shirt shop that will draw the tourists in. Here in Santa Fe there is not shortage of them here. This one Strings and T-shirts is close to my office. The difference here at this shop is that you can buy a Ristra of chiles to take home with you too.

Fuzzy Boots

The last couple of days have been windy and pretty cold. The other day I saw this woman coming across the street, get a load of those boots. Have a happy Monday everyone.

Loretto Chapel

Here is a front and side view of the Loretto Chapel. I caught it last week when the sky was the perfect shade of blue. Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday.

Everyone's Doing It.

Now that the days are a little warmer more and more people are hanging out at the plaza. Seems that they are not the only ones. I can only imagine what it will be like when they re-seed the park.

Read All About It

As you can see, we have quite a few publications that can be found here near the cathedral park and all over town. Do you have these in your city or has someone created a more visually appealing alternative? Have a happy Friday!

Standing on the Corner V

This is the view facing east on the corner of Sandoval and San Francisco street. In the far distance you can see St. Francis Basilica.

I won't be stopping by tonight, I received tickets to see The Mavericks for my birthday. Have a great day, see you tomorrow.

Old Screen Door

This is something you don't see very often in the city, nowadays all you see are security doors. I came across this one in an old neighborhood. I love the sound of a wooden screen door.

On a Gray Day

On a day when the sun was hiding behind the clouds and the temperatures were still a little cooler I caught this couple shopping for some Native American jewelry. This jewelry artist can always be found in the same spot on San Francisco street. Wishing you a bright sunny start to your week.

Standing on the Corner IV

When your standing on the corner of Palace and Lincoln looking northwest you will see the New Mexico Museum of Art. Face east and you will see the plaza. Wishing everyone a Happy St. Patricks Day! Don't forget to wear your green!

Big Screen Shooter

This woman was walking around the plaza earlier this week just snapping away with her iPad. It's amazing how many more people are walking around with these instead of a camera. I think they are great for a quick snap but if I were traveling I would want a good camera. What are your thoughts?

Long Week

As I was walking past the city library the other day I came across this gentleman sleeping on a bench. He did not appear to be homeless so I figured he was have the kind of week I've had TGIF! Have a happy one everyone!

A New Pope

I happened to be walking around during my lunch hour when the Vatican announced they had chosen a new pope. As I passed St. Francis Basilica the bells started to ring. They rang for well over an hour as I walked back to my office. I thought it only fitting to snap this photo of the statue of St. Francis.

Today is my midterm but I won't be back until tomorrow. After class I have to drive down to Albuquerque for the remainder of the day and evening. My company has opened a new office there and I have to set up for our Grand Opening. Have a great day everyone.

It's Not My Party

This party actually took place last Saturday but there were stickers on windows around local bars. Thank you all for the birthday wishes. I guess this person has alot of friends around town, or maybe not.

My Gift

Today happens to be my birthday. So yesterday I wanted to find my gift to myself, the first sign of Spring.  As I was out on my daily walk I came across this on Tulip.  There were others close by but they hadn't even started to bloom. I will just have to go by again in a few days to see if they are awake.

Just a reminder. My blog will be on automatic mode from now until Thursday. I am working on another website for my mid-term which is due Thursday. As of today it's progressing fairly well. I might be back Wednesday if all goes well tomorrow.

Just a touch

The city woke up to more snow yesterday but not enough to cause any problems. By early afternoon the sun was out but it was still chilly.

Just a note. I will be on automatic mode from now until Thursday. I am working on another website for my mid-term which is due Thursday and it's giving me fits so I won't be around until Friday. Have a great week my friends!

And it Came

Just like the weather service forecast said it would. This was late in the afternoon though. I woke up to much more on the ground but as the sun peaked out it melted it away pretty fast. By evening it had stopped. Today should be sunny, I hope. Whatever your Sunday is forecast is, enjoy it.

Old Burro Mural

This mural is one the side of the Lensic Theater and can be seen as your walking along Burro Ally. It's a depiction of how the entrance to Burro Ally was in the old days.

Speeding By

I don't know about you but this week went by pretty fast. As I was out for my lunch time walk I saw this young man skating around the plaza. The weather has been pretty great these last few days but I understand it's supposed to cool down again tomorrow with a chance of rain or snow. We'll see. Have a great Friday everyone!

On my Way

The La Fonda Hotel is getting a much needed exterior face lift before the tourist season arrives. As I was walking by the other day I heard yelling out to a co-worker on the ground "On my Way." As I looked up there he was.

Many Shades of Gray

With a little touch of Red.

Standing on the Corner III

A few afternoons past I was standing on the corner of Old Santa Fe Trail and San Francisco Street. On the other corner is Packards, they have some wonderful things like Native American rugs, jewelry and housewares. To the east is the La Fonda Hotel and down the street, St Francis Basilica.

Hairy Situation

Yesterday I was out grocery shopping and as I was cruising through the produce aisle I spot this, a hair piece. I looked around to see if there was someone who looked as if they lost a patch of hair but no luck. All I could think of as I finished my shopping is that person who is probably at home trying to pick it out and wondering "why won't this damn thing come out." Needless to say I didn't buy any nuts.

Standing on the Corner

I was out and about on my walk yesterday and I thought it was time for another shot from a corner. This is the corner of Don Gaspar and Waters St. Happy Saturday everyone.
