Fine Art Images from the American Southwest

Downtown Taos, La Fonda Hotel, Shadows


Downtown Taos, La Fonda Hotel, Shadows. Stopped in Taos Plaza this morning for a drive by shooting. Had to get out of the car for this one! New Mexico lends itself to images of architecture and early morning shadows. I’m not always up so early but when I am I like to cruise the empty streets for this type of shot. Of course, the sun was well and truly up before me! Thanks for looking. G

Taos, Shadows, Prism, Rainbow


Taos, shadows, prism, rainbow. It’s where we live, well a little farther north and under normal circumstances we’d go to Taos two or three times a week, sometimes more. This is the end of week three spent at home. We’ve been to the store twice during that time, and made a couple of solitary drives out to photograph. We made a few trips to the Rio Grande Gorge, to stand on the rim and let the wind blow the cobwebs away. Spending this time at home, allows me to dig into projects that I’ve put on the back burner. I might get to really like it. In the country, we do solitary well, social distancing is three acres. How about you? What are you doing? I hope everyone is safe and staying healthy. Thanks for looking. G

Texture, Corbels, Vigas, Shadows, Taos, NM


Texture, Corbels, Vigas, and Shadows, Kit Carson Road, Taos, NM. There’s plenty of this kind of thing around New Mexico, and especially in the northern half of the state. Perhaps a new tagline for this part of the state might be “the land of long shadows”. At this time of year “golden” or “magic” hour lasts  longer than most places, and art history in the area reaches back long before Europeans landed. Thanks for looking. G

Santa Fe Stairwell Shadows


Santa Fe, New Mexico. Downtown shadows on a stairwell wall. I can’t remember where exactly. Not like me to forget. Dipped into the archives again and I found this little item. If you haven’t been receiving my photo of the day in your inbox, I apologize. I think it is fixed tonight. If not please let me know or resign up for my daily post. As always, thank you for looking. Geraint.

High Road Shadows, Truchas, NM


High Road Shadows, Truchas, NM. On the High Road to Taos is the mountain town of Truchas, New Mexico where Robert Redford made the movie “Milagro Beanfield War” from the book of the same name by Taos author, John Nichols. John very graciously wrote the foreword in my book for which I will always be grateful. Thank you John, and thanks for looking. G
