OLD TIMER

Today was one of those days. I actually got caught out without my iPhone! Gasp! Remember that old Chase Jarvis saying? The best camera is the camera you have with you.

Well, I had my iPad Air wth me. So I used it. So glad I did.

 

JUNK STORE SELFIE

We had lunch with Thea's sister, Alicia, on Tuesday, and after lunch we visited a local second hand shop.

I sat down to try out an interesting chair, and when I looked to my right, there was a small chest, a medicine cabinet, maybe, with a beveled glass mirror in the door.

And there I was, staring back at myself.

My iPhone was in my shirt pocket, of course, so out it came and there I was and here I am in an almost candid sort of street photography style self portrait.

 

NORTHERN STYLE

Who will save this beautiful northern New Mexico farm style adobe in Llano San Juan? Just look at those thick walls. There's lot of history here.

 

OLD BARN AT TRAMPAS

Shot this in Trampas on the way back from the dentist in Embudo, after the light left the church in shadow, and my battery died, with Thea's phone.

SOMEDAY

Another shot from our day off last Sunday. Will this car be restored, towed away, or simply, slowly, melt into the earth?

See you tomorrow…

 

MADONNA AND CHILD

This little Madonna and Child has been in our collection for nearly thirty years. I have photographed it many times, never successfully. Even when I shot it as reference for a painting, it always fell short.

As I was getting out of bed this morning, this was the first thing ny eyes fell upon. I reached for my iPhone and took this picture, which, at long last, captured the feelings I have for this unusual treasure.

Hasta mañana.

 

SKULL OF A YOUNG HORSE

SKULL OF A YOUNG HORSE / PhotoForge2 / iPhone 4s / 100 Cameras in One / Photo Toaster

Here's one from the archives. Having computer problems tonight, so this will be a short message.

Hasta Mañana

 

TAOS CAT

TAOS CAT / Panasonic Lumix TZ5 / PhotoForge2 / ACDSee

While photographing this old truck covered with snow, I saw something move in the shadows beneath it. Soon, this little fellow peeked out, a tiny kitten, perfectly framed by the old truck.

You never know what you might find if you keep your eyes and your mind open when out photographing. I certainly got lucky on this day.

You can click on the image for a closer look.

OK, I promised I would start today telling you about the projects I've been working on lately. All I can tell you right now is that I wrapped one of them up late last night. I can't spill the beans just yet, as I still have a bit of tidying up to do. But…

Tomorrow, I will give you a sneak peek!

Hasta Mañana.
