This week I thought I’d revisit some images from Tucumcari, New Mexico. I spent a couple of days there with my friend Ron a few years ago. It might be time for another visit soon. Maybe this winter for a change and to see what might have changed.
I like to shoot a lot of buildings and storefronts head-on. The perspective offers simple shapes and patterns.
Truchas, Trampas, Ranchos De Taos, NM. High Road photography convoy tour continued form my post a few days ago. It was a little too much editing to do all in one go. There is no order of importance or favorite, I posted these and the previous images in the order we discovered then. Enjoy! And thank you for joining me virtually here on my website. G
High Road to Taos with R David Marks yesterday. Black and White is rubbing off on me on this day out on the High Road to Taos, in the mountains of northern New Mexico. It was a good day, lighting wise to make black and white images and in good company. Thanks for looking. G
San Acacio, building and cross, in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. I photograph anything and everything. I shot this out the window when turning the car around. I like the stark graphic of the cross and the shapes in the buildings wall. Thanks for looking. G
Film, License, Pop, Cards, Ice. Just across the street from yesterday’s mural image, in the “oldest town” in Colorado, is “R and R Market” established 1857 ergo the “oldest shop” in Colorado. Thanks for looking. G
The Diner in Tres Piedras, (Three Rocks), New Mexico. The diner at the junction of US 285 and US 64 is long gone now but, was reputed to have had the best green chili cheese burgers around the region. At least that’s what my meat eating friends told me. I’ll have the green chili in a bowl with the cheese grated on top, hold the meat. If you’re looking for good food in Tres Piedras these days check out the Chili Line Depot. Thanks for looking. G
Dance Hall (formerly), in Petaca, New Mexico. It is now part of a residence of a sweet lady I met who has a long history here. She also had plenty of time to share that history with me on her way out to put gas in her pickup truck. As you can imagine there’s a lot of history that this 83 year old woman could share. In brief she told me, her family lived close by and that she was grateful for that. Thanks for looking. G
Pigeon hole, window, color of the day, pink! You know where that pigeon is heading to hideout from the storm tonight, joining a few friends in this building on the road in Cerro, NM, “gateway” to the National Monument. Thanks for looking. G
Doorways, in the old town of Las Vegas, New Mexico. There’s not much use for a level, square or plumb-bob in New Mexico. If there were, then the whole state just wouldn’t look right. Charm, it is what it is. Thanks for looking. G
Wall paint, patina on a building in Holman, NM looks like a painting. When I first spotted this, out of the corner of my eye, I thought the little blue and rust colored spots were actual flowers. By the time the lichen and mold creep is finished with it’s work, this wall will be a masterpiece. Thanks for looking. G
