Cerrillos

One of the many great things about photography  is that you can revisit old favorites provided you can find them again an hour or less. Since I am playing with my New Mexico trip my pictures are still available in seconds, not hours. I feel no compulsion about hopping from place to place in this journey as well as revisiting place to find new images.

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.

Belmont Abbey College

I keep driving past Belmont Abbey College on the way to Charlotte, NC and can see the spires of the campus church form the highway and last time up we decided to stop and take a look. The campus and church are beautiful with trees, flowers and a very neat church. Jere is a quick, painless wald from a parking lot to the church.

Mission San Delores and Basilica

Our last big visit in SF was to the Mission and Basilica San Dolores. The mission building is the oldest building in California, built in 1776 and the last remaining mission building in the 21 mission group of missions created in California by Father Junipero Serra. The old mission and cemetery are beautiful and the basilica is fairly simple (for a basilica) but elegant. While there we were treated to an impromptu concert from the organist rehearsing what was probably Bach’s organ music.
