Spring Shadows

Light and Shadow at the Albuquerque Greyhound Station

There’s something about spring in New Mexico which makes really great shadows. These were at the Albuquerque Greyhound Bus Station a few weeks ago.


Old Town Capilla

Capilla de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

I really love this little chapel in Old Town Albuquerque. I’ve seen it at many different times, in many different light conditions, but I’ve never seen it look quite like this. It seems perfect for Easter.


Santuario de Chimayó in Fall

Santuario de Chimayó in Fall

I stopped by the Santuario de Chimayó a few weeks ago. I hadn’t been there for some years — it had become a bit too busy and commercial for my taste. I was driving to Taos that day and saw the turnoff, and made a split-second decision to visit. There were fewer people there that day and it was very peaceful — one of the positive effects of COVID-19, perhaps — and I was glad I’d made the sudden decision to turn off the highway.


The Turquoise Door

The Turquoise Door

There’s a small domed building near Abiquiu that’s endlessly fascinating to me — I think it’s a shrine or a small chapel. It’s had several incarnations, or at least that’s how it appears to me. The most recent features a turquoise door with sunflowers,yellow chairs, and yellow grass.


Light and Shadow in Las Cruces Plaza

Light and Shadow in Las Cruces Plaza

A beautiful sunny day, in the depth of winter, created fabulous shadows on this structure at the edge of the Las Cruces Plaza.
