Shapes and colors, GMC truck, Overland Ranch, Taos New Mexico. Spent sometime here on a photo tour here yesterday. I made some cell phone snaps and some abstract studies. I have a notion to return with the big camera and make some extremely large images of small details in the many shapes. I’ve investigated this and numerous other classic trucks and autos, it’s about time to do it. I’m going to check out the harvest moon rise this evening, as I’ve done for many years. Here’s last years image and one from October 7, 2006. Thanks for looking. G
Yellow brick wall, on the road in Trinidad, Colorado. I’m not a friend of yellow, I usually avoid yellow anything, but I like the way it works in this image. I’m looking forward to a five day photo trek around many locations with my good friend and photographer Ron Richardson. We’ll be spending time in northeastern New Mexico and southeastern Colorado and will stop into Trinidad again. If you would like to join me on an extended photo tour/workshop call me for a date that suits you. Thanks for looking. G
Colors brighten a dull overcast day in Arroyo Seco, NM. And… New Mexico colors to boot. Peeling painters masking tape, with turquoise, caught my eye. The colors in this scene were the brightest element in the village a couple of days ago during the rain and snow and mist and rain and snow again. It truly brightened my day. Thanks for looking. G
Red, yellow, downtown Trinidad, Colorado. Made a trip around the block, a long block, a three hundred mile block! Stopped into the town of Trinidad and made a few images of the local “decor”. It would be easy to fill a few memory cards of images here with all the primary colors including plenty of red and yellow. Thanks for looking. G
Bus bench and wall, Farmington, NM. I know there is a bus service in Farmington and I know there are a number of these benches around with matching trash cans. I didn’t see a bus stop sign here, so I figured the bench was ‘the’ sign. It got my attention and I liked all the linear visuals going on. Thanks for looking. G
Another bench under different circumstances. Something we’d like to see a lot more of around here in northern New Mexico very soon!
Highway 17, aspens turning in Colorado. Took a drive today over the Cumbres Pass on Highway 17 to check out the aspen colors. We found many groves turning to shades of yellow, gold and red. There are still many green groves, and then there are many groves that, in the words of the band the Eagles, are “already gone”! Thanks for looking, and if you are in New Mexico, get out there over the next week for some prime colors. G
Walking man in color, Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was lining up this shot of color coated apartment buildings and fence boards, when this man walked through my shot with some apparent purpose, I know not what. When viewing the image later, I decided that I liked it a lot and added it to my “walking man” series. Thanks for looking. G
