Tumbleweed, Fence Posing

Tumbleweed, fence posing. These wispy, feathery tumbleweed fronds are clinging to the elk fence lining the highway. The tumbleweeds are sometimes referred to as mesa street sweepers. They can often be seen frolicking along with appendages such as plastic bags and other trappings. Taken uo and deposited here by the wind and ultimately freed by the wind. This one will be sifted through the fence soon. Thanks for looking. G

Chapel, Santa Cruz De Ojo Caliente, Historic Site

Chapel, Santa Cruz de Ojo Caliente, historic site, New Mexico. I often share my thoughts with my clients on religion, it’s core conflict and how to represent the fight between light and darkness in a picture. I include it deliberately in this photo of the Catholic church just around the corner from the Ojo Caliente Spa. Thanks for looking. G

“Kilroy Was Here” Carson, New Mexico

“Kilroy Was Here” Carson, New Mexico. I like the surprise I get when I find out that Kilroy was already here. I remember seeing this first in 1970, in the movie “Kelly’s Heroes” with Clint Eastwood, that was set in WWII. This image is in the wild west. We all know Clint “is” the west and Kilroy will show up anywhere and always before you do. Here’s the scoop on Kilroy! Thanks for looking. G

Claret Cup Cactus, Carson National Forest, NM

Claret Cup Cactus growing all around in the Carson National Forest, northern New Mexico. Took a hike yesterday with my son in the foothills close to San Cristobal. He spotted this beauty under a pine tree. We also have a nice grouping under the pine tree in our garden. Beauty to behold at this time of year in the high desert. Thanks for looking. G

American Creek, Moreno Valley, New Mexico

American Creek, in the Moreno Valley, northern New Mexico where the stars in the sky reach down below your feet. I created this composition to capture the feeling I get when standing in the vast wide open spaces in New Mexico. That was then. Now the few apps I use on my phone give me a virtual reality view of the sky dome above and below my feet and every which way I care to look. Thanks for looking. G

San Cristobal Chapel, New Mexico

San Cristobal Chapel, in the Village of San Cristobal, New Mexico. We live so close, close enough that we can hear the bells ring for Mass or a funeral. I haven’t heard the bells ring out for awhile. I always remember, as a kid, hearing stories that during World War II the church bells in Britain were silent until the day war ended. That day, they rang out as never before. Stay safe and well. Thanks for looking. G

Ghost Ranch, Spring, New Mexico

Ghost Ranch is Georgia O’Keeffe Country, and spring in New Mexico is a palette of shifting colors and light. Albeit, an image from a couple of years ago, I’m looking forward to tomorrow, and an experiment in social distancing and the art of photo touring. Not a stretch, but looking for more ways to share locations in our beautiful state with visiting photographers under our current conditions. Thanks for looking. G
