Indigo patina with rust at the Cumbres and Toltec Railway in Antonito, Colorado. Compositions are not always what they seem. Pick a spot on the old engine or rail cars, point the camera and take a shot. This is a macro shot of a small detail. There are many possibilities. Thanks for looking. G
Door way from the street, Saguache, Colorado. Sorry, I can’t pass up an aging doorway with crackle and peeling paint. Thanks for looking. G
Patinas and rust galore in New Mexico. Peer in to any abandoned building, drive down any back road and you will find scenes like this one. The payoff, from rural flight, is an opportunity to document the past that often gives me a glimpse into the lives of those gone before. Thanks for looking. G
Patina painting. Many fading coats of paint tell their own story. So many stories, which one to tell. I’ll go with this one today. Thanks for looking. G
Steam radiator, high design, slate grey wall, patina. It didn’t take much to catch my eye for this one. Made on a photo tour of southern Colorado. Thanks for looking. G
Patina on the old mill door. I made this image a number of years ago. I find great pleasure in spending some quality time, with a good beer or a nice glass of whiskey, browsing the hard drives, revisiting images I passed over on first viewing. Sometimes I throw a virtual dart in the form of a four digit suffix (the original image number from the camera), in this case “1191” to see what reveals itself. Yesterday this old door attracted my attention, so here it is. This door belongs to the old mill in La Cueva, New Mexico.
