Christmas decorations year round in El Rito, New Mexico. They’re a little more faded now, but I thought they added a nice touch, surrounding the doorway to this boarded up building. The main room has an intact, pressed tin ceiling and a solitary bare light bulb hanging there. All in all, this old dance hall (according to a local) has some potential for the right developer. Another local we met, proposed that we open a grocery store in the village, to which we politely declined. Anyway, as always, thanks for looking. G
In the town of Estancia, New Mexico, a mural and windows. Spent some time here last year and enjoyed the town of Estancia immensely. With no agenda, expectations or outcome in mind I had a lot of fun wandering aimlessly around making images of anything that caught my eye. Here’s one below. Here’s another, just around the corner. Thanks for looking. G
Ruins of America Trading Post, near Dove Creek. Colorado. A dollar for this photo, thanks Ron, and signs declaring, “Welcome come on in…” “Pull” ” Push” “Closed” and in the image below on the door is their motto. I’m not knocking it! It’s a fine motto. Even though the place was closed I think the chair and brooms were a nice homey touch. Oh… they also have maps and information, books, salvage, antiques, coffee and of course, BEANS! Thanks for looking, and understanding. G
Trading Post motto… “May our motto always be that our customers enter in anticipation and leave without regrets”
Dryland Beans, Ruins of America Trading Post sign. I always thought, the numerous times I’ve passed this place, that it was the “beans” that ruined America.
Building façade on a side street in Walsenburg, Colorado. The building and seasons here seem to go hand in hand. Click here to see an image from April, 2017. Thanks for looking. G
Magic Sky Gallery, Ranchos de Taos. Tin siding, closed for good, and for sale. On a High Road to Taos photo tour today we stopped by this building. The rain and overcast skies added to and emphasized, the colors of this iconic building in the St. Francis Church Plaza in Ranchos de Taos. Thanks for looking. G
Building facade in the town of Saguache Colorado. Stopped in this quaint little town in southern Colorado and made images of many historical stone and brick building facades. I liked the broken window for added effect in this image. Thanks for looking. G
