In the Glow

I shot this for the glow of the sunset. While taking this shot I noticed this young woman in orange singing every word to the Dunwell's songs. Imagine my surprise when the woman to the left of her busted out in song too.

And They Danced

The evening of The Barefoot Movement and The Dunwells concert people were having a great time dancing to both groups. No I was not brave enough besides someone had to take the pictures.

The Dunwells

Following The Barefoot Movement we had the chance to hear The Dunwells. They came to us all the way from Leeds, England and had a great sound. Check out the link to find out more about this wonderful group.

Music on the Plaza

Every Summer we get to enjoy music at the plaza bandstand. The other evening I had the pleasure of hearing the Barefoot Movement. They stopped here after performing at the Bluegrass Festival in Colorado. Here is a snippet from their website but to read more click on the link: "The Barefoot Movement is a quartet of immensely talented musicians from North & South Carolina and Tennessee whose music successfully melds Americana influences with the invigoration of acoustic modern rock and jazz."

This Party Calls For A Hat.

This was one of those surprise shots that I thought turned out pretty good.

Party Time

These two young women were dress in their party best for the Pride Festival this weekend. No I didn't wear anything that wild.

Santa Fe Pride

Yesterday people were out and about for Santa Fe Pride 2013. This guy was running all over the park while the mayor and city officials were speaking about the importance of equality in our city.

Gray and White

I didn't notice the two colors in the clouds at first. I was going for the split in the cloud with the Adobe.

Children Crossing

Bet you've never seen a Children Crossing sign like this one. Happy Friday everyone!

Fun Ride!

The little Fiat 500's are popping up all over town. They look like a fun little ride but I don't know how they would be on a long trip.

Clouds Over San Francisco Street.

Don't you just love puffy white clouds? It's coming on monsoon season here in New Mexico and we're seeing more and more days like this.

Pink Ride

Every now and then I see this pick bike cruising around town. The other day I happen to see it after it was cruising around the plaza.

Saturday Night Concert

Saturday I was fortunate enough to see a legend in concert. At the age of 66, Emmylou Harris puts on quite a show. I hope I have that much energy and class when I reach that age. I just might have to make a run to Arizona in September to see her again. It would be worth the trip. It's not that great of a shot, I had to sneak it with my iPhone. Happy Monday all.

Dog Day Afternoon

The other day while sitting in the plaza I saw this handsome pup walking in my direction.  It was fun to watch him enjoy the park and the people who walked by.

Poppies are blooming all over town right now. This little patch can be found near La Casa Sena, a local restaurants with great patio seating that will let you take in the beauty of the nearby gardens.

With a Song

What's a Farmer's Market without a little music. Lucky for us, there is always a few people singing or playing music.  This trio had a great sound but then I am a sucker for mandolin music.

Blue Corn

In the next booth I found a vendor selling different kinds of organic seeds. Blue Corn anyone?

How do you like it?

At the Farmer's Market there is an assortment of vendors who sell chile. This vender had dried red chile that can be used for a variety of dishes. One of my favorite happens to be Breakfast Enchiladas with Red Chile. A little bacon, eggs, wrapped in a flour tortilla with melted cheese and red chile.

Rent Me

When you come to visit our beautiful city there are many ways to get around. Most visitors walk around, some ride the bike-taxis. If your wanting something a little faster you can always rent one of these scooters. I might just have to try one someday.

It's Happy Hour Somewhere!

If you like beer you would love Santa Fe Brewing Company beer. I was living in Phoenix when I tried it for the first time and I was hooked. I caught this delivery truck at one of their downtown stops yesterday.  Wishing everyone a very happy Friday.

Taking a Break

While walking through the plaza yesterday I caught sight of these two firefighters waiting for their fellow teammates.  They must have been at lunch because there was nothing going on at the plaza.

As for our two fires they have both burned over 9,000 acres as of last night.  The mornings are pretty smoky here in town but by mid-day you can walk around outside until it comes back.

Swallowtail Butterfly

Yesterday I was walking by the Basilica and I saw this beautiful Swallowtail butterfly fly by. I watched for it to stop and I was lucky to catch this shot before it flew off.

And The Work Goes On

The work on La Fonda is still going on. I am sure they probably wish it was done in time for tourist season, too late for that. Maybe it will be done before Spanish Market next month.

Prayer Flags

I found these colorful prayer flags out side of The Ark bookstore which is close to my house. It is a New Age/Spiritual bookstore that carries everything from books,music and things for your home.

Speaking of prayers, our thoughts go out to the firefighters who are fighting the two fires to the East and West of us. One first has already burned over 6500 acres. Needless to say smoke is everywhere. No rain in sight but we can hope it comes soon.
