Saint Francis Church, Ranchos De Taos, NM

Saint Francis Church, Ranchos de Taos, NM. The San Francisco de Asis Church under a lavender, twilight sky. Soft shadows give this building a gentle look. From across the street you can also see one of the two belfry crosses. The two towers aren’t equal in height therefore only one cross is visible. Well they maybe equal, but the foundation slopes to the south making them uneven. Stay soft and gentle and be safe out there. Thanks for looking. G

Talpa Chapel, Black Cross, Clouds, Sky

Talpa Chapel, Black Cross, Clouds, Sky. The chapel of Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos Talpa, New Mexico. Thirty five years ago I used to live very near to this chapel and was able to hear the bell ring for various masses and feast days. I heard similar sounding bells in many small European villages. We are not that distant from our cousins, I can hear it in the bells. Tomorrow I’m heading up the high road to Taos. A photo tour trip on the high road was guaranteed at least 6 times a month before Covid 19. Tomorrow will be my first trip on the high road since the first week of March this year. I’m looking forward to slightly cooler temperatures and fresh mountain air. I’ll drop in at this location for old times sake. Thank you 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
