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.

The Old House and Bud’s

Why do I return to places like the old house ? When I turn on my computer I look for images that still appeal to me and the old house and Bud’s Village Shop just keep calling, so here they are. I think that black and white serves to bring out the shapes and textures as well as being a bit more intense. In this set, color, while pleasing, is a distraction for me.

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/

Pendleton Oil Mill, Pendleton, SC

This is one of my favorite sites to photograph and was one of the first places I photographed when Iwe moved to SC. The mill is slowly slipping into complete entropy, which is sad because I think it should be made into historical site with a full but correct renovation as it is part of our history in the Upstate.
