S: New Mexico July 2011

BC: A look back at Santa Fe

FC: New Mexico July 2011

1: Santa Fe Architecture | Adobe walls, flat roofs, and smooth arches. Cool blues, rich earth tones, and shades of rose are typical of the old New Mexico City of Santa Fe.

2: Chile peppers and window boxes. Sculpted windows and blue skies.

3: Intricate hand-made shapes and forms. Bright sun and interesting shadows.

4: Madrid is Cool Madrid, 20 miles south of Santa Fe, once a ghost town, now a very "artsy" kind of place where old and new mingle to produce a very laid-back kind of life-style.

5: Nature rules in Madrid where the old is made new again and the earth responds with natural beauty.

6: They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is also in the lens of the camera. One only has to look closer.

8: Old dogs and older buildings, quietly watching time go by.

9: Northern New Mexico Desolation and anonymity. Forgotten names and forgotten places.

10: From atop the Capulin Volcano one can see forever.

11: Elizabeth Town, or E-Town as it was once called when it was a thriving community of over 6,000 people.

12: Today there are but a few reminders of what once was.

14: Adobe-walled churches and missions dot the New Mexico landscape.

15: The subtle beauty of nature is all around.

16: Fort Union. Once proud guardian of the Santa Fe Trail. Cut deep into the earth, wagon wheel ruts can still be seen.

17: A lonely sentinel quietly peering towards the mountains.

18: The dry desert preserves the wooden framework, hand-hewn over 150 years ago.

19: From Fort Union to the Panhandle The Panhandle of West Texas was once a great cotton kingdom. Its faded remains lay scattered across the vast plains.

20: Homes of sharecroppers melt into the earth while tired old trees stand in silence.
