Paint Patina, Chevrolet, Arroyo Seco, NM

Paint patina on that old Chevrolet truck in Arroyo Seco, NM. I haven’t posted New Mexico patina colors for a while so here’s one from the archive. It also has some staple stitching going on, a little touch of Frankenstein, if he, Herr Frankenstein had a truck. Would that make it a monster truck? All joking aside, it’s hard for me to pass up a scene like this. Thanks for looking. G

The Old Mill Door Patina

Patina on the old mill door. I made this image a number of years ago. I find great pleasure in spending some quality time, with a good beer or a nice glass of whiskey, browsing the hard drives, revisiting images I passed over on first viewing. Sometimes I throw a virtual dart in the form of a four digit suffix (the original image number from the camera), in this case “1191” to see what reveals itself. Yesterday this old door attracted my attention, so here it is. This door belongs to the old mill in La Cueva, New Mexico.
