Boardwalk, Steps, Bricks, Pink Wall. On our trip through southern Colorado and northern New Mexico to check out the aspens, we dropped in at Tierra Wools in Los Ojos, NM, where I spent some time looking around the architecture in the village. I’ll post a few images over the next few days from this sweet outpost known for it’s fiber arts, yarns and sheep round up each spring and fall. Here is the boardwalk at the entrance to Tierra Wools. I thought the colors had a hint of fall to them. G
Homestead meadow, on the road to Mora, New Mexico. This trip around the block turned into exclamations of “ahh”, “oh my”, “did you see that?” one after another.
“Around the block” might literally be a trip around the neighborhood. It may take an hour or two! On the other hand it may be a day trip or a trip lasting a number of days. No matter it’s length, it is a trip which brings us back home all the richer for the adventure and places we’ve explored, the people we met and locations we experienced. This day was just that. We savored each moment and returned home fulfilled and content. Thanks for looking. G
Willow window shutters. I’ve visited this building in Mora, New Mexico for a long time. I like the simplicity of the composition. I like the break in the shutters and the slight stair stepping of the rock wall. I like the difference between the rock wall and the uniformity of the stucco wall. Thanks for looking. G
Reflections on the red brick Albuquerque, NM. You’re walking around looking for signs of life, architecture, or anything for that matter, then you come across something right under your feet. The sun reflecting off a window on to the red bricks in the courtyard at San Felipe de Neri church, Albuquerque, NM. Thanks for looking. G
Hollyhocks at the Salman Raspberry Ranch Store, La Cueva, New Mexico. The color makes them look almost delicious enough to eat, like the raspberry chocolate they sell in the store just over my shoulder. Yes… we purchased some raspberry fudge, it didn’t make it home. Later, when reviewing the image, I thought they looked as if they were ponying up the bar! Thanks for looking. G
“Nearly” full moon rise tonight over San Cristobal, NM. I stepped out into the cool evening air just when a ghost of a moon rose over the Sangre de Cristo foothills. As “la luna” made it’s way skyward, some clouds moved in creating a mystery around it’s silent ascent. Late tonight the clouds may disperse and the light of the moon will illuminate the whole interior of our house … no night lights needed. Thanks for looking. G
