The Old Homestead Barn

Al and I did one of our wanders last Friday and found an old barn out in rural South Carolina which is about to be torn down.  If you want to see this type of scene, you need to do it soon.

Plaza Hotel, Las Vegas, NM

Here are the promised photographs of the Plaza Hotel. I is a warm, beautiful, handcrafted hotel of a sort not often seen in “modern” hotels. It is definitely worth a visit.

Old Pecos Trail

I love New Mexico for its friendly people, interesting architecture and wonderful colors. These were taken while wandering up Old Pecos Trail road which still retains its pioneering look.

Rainy Day Wall

This wall is an ideal location for rainy day shooting. The relatively subtle colors and textures seem to be strengthened by the wetness. The shapes of the doors and windows are also interesting for thier patterns.

An Old Home Place

A few days ago Alice and I found an old house but I forgot to put a memory card in my camera but the light was lousy, so nothing lost. The second time I was more careful and here are some of the images. The old home and surrounding property is magical.

There were more things to see but they are for next time.

Glorieta, NM

Glorieta ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glorieta,_New_Mexico ) is one of those small but intense gems that can be found in many places but the ones I have found in New Mexico intrigue me the most. The buildings with their earth tones and the blue skies as well as the kind of remoteness all add up to something special.

Old Business Site

Old business sites with their warehouses and offices cast great shadows and make one wonder about their histories. Many of These exist just outside of small towns and are little treasures which I feel the need to record/
