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.

Painted Window and Red Chairs

Red Chairs at La Hacienda

Old Town Albuquerque is a shadow of its former self. It’s clear a number of businesses have closed, and others seem to be limping along. One of the latter was La Hacienda this afternoon, whose outdoor dining chairs have long been an irresistible photo subject for me. (They used to be green; see here and here.) I was happy I could take a photo of the colorful window without having to dodge gazillions of tourists but … Old Town still seems quite muted.
