White House, Petaca, New Mexico

White House, Petaca, northern New Mexico, on the backroads of rural New Mexico surrounded by miles and miles of piñon pine and juniper hills. As the saying goes, “it’s not the middle of nowhere, but you can see it from here”. Then we come across this scene. A half block long, white-washed building, in a hamlet where people stop their cars and say “hello” as we make images of the house, shining under a deep blue , only in New Mexico, sky. Thanks for looking. G

La Capilla De Nuestra Senora Del Carmen, NM

La Capilla De Nuestra Senora Del Carmen, Llano Quemado, Taos, NM. Last light fading on this iconic chapel lights up the belfry and cross. It is a beautiful piece of New Mexico architecture, representing a culture that extends back before the pilgrims landed. There’s the church of San Miguel in Santa Fe, seventy miles south of Taos, with the date of 1610 carved in a ceiling beam. Thanks for looking. G

Santa Fe Architectural Detail

 

Santa Fe architectural detail. When on the town in Santa Fe, New Mexico, it’s not to difficult to find more than enough scenes to fill a camera’s memory card. In fact there are some wonderful details around every corner. Discerning which images to work with is another matter. In this case, I liked the simplicity of the composition, and discarded other, more cluttered and somewhat contrived variations. This image actually turned out to be one of the first couple of frames I made. Sometimes first impressions are the best. Thanks for looking. G
