Fine Art Images from the American Southwest

Gate but no fence … yet, in the village of Arroyo Hondo, New Mexico. There’s a beautiful little acequia runs through this property just behind the gate. I can just discern the outline of it. While I was taking the picture, the owner emerged from his home with and inquisitive, watchful, eye from behind the screen door. I told him, “We are admiring your gate, and can’t wait to see the fence!” He was amiable regarding our curiosity. I think he is proud of the gate and chained it to the posts so no one will steal it. Good luck to anyone who tries it. Or it, the gate, being made of mostly steel was, in all probability, holding up the posts.  Image filed under local oddities. Thanks for looking. G
