Adobe Dish Network, in the historic hamlet of Ocate, NM. I love coming across a mix of the old and new and there’s plenty of it. One hundred percent New Mexico. Thanks for looking. G
Blumenschein Home ladder, Ledoux Street, Taos, New Mexico. The wall is adobe, made from local mud and straw. This ladder, at the east studio wall of the Blumenschein Home, ascending to the roof and beyond, is an iconic symbol of southwest architecture. Thanks for looking. G
Three iron crosses, at the San Francisco De Asis Church, Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico. Simple iron crosses and adobe moistened by a little rain, iconic New Mexico. Thanks for looking. G
Adobe walls, La Santa Rosa de Lima on the banks of the Rio Chama, Abiquiu. Someone, during the last week or so, had reassembled the rotting old wood cross that was replaced a few years ago and left laying in the cholla cactus near by. Yesterday we met a lady, a member of the parish, who had planted young rose bushes. There are bottles of water stored next to the building, labeled, “Please use to water rose bushes”. I told her I would water them when I visit again next week. She was grateful. Thanks for looking. G
Here are a couple of images made on previous visits.
