SEE THROUGH

A real Taos fixer-upper.

 

ANOTHER SANTA FE GATE

I was in Santa Fe briefly, to run an errand, so I took a quick drive around town and shot a hand full of photos on my iPhone. Always working. 😉

 

SANTA FE GATE

I liked the solitary red flower in the pot in the nicho of this typical Santa Fe, New Mexico scene.

 

 

THE GREEN DOOR

LA PUERTA VERDE, SAN BLAS, NAYARIT, MÉXICO

 

“66”

The 66 Diner in Albuquerque, New Mexico is a great place for a hamburger and a shake. This wall is on the side of their parking lot on Central Avenue, the former Route 66.

 

QUERETARO COLOR

The place I miss the most from my latest trip across Mexico, Santiago de Querétaro, Qro.

Hasta mañana…

 

TAOS DECOR

TAOS DECOR / iPad Air 2 / Noir

Another bit of iPad play. The start of a series? Maybe. I know that when the iPad is in my hands, and I look up, and there's something wanting to be photographed, I'm not going to simply ignore it.

A series will surely accumulate over time, but I'm not likely to devote a specific period of time to creating such a series to the exclusion of working with other cameras, especially my iPhone 6s Plus.

Tomorrow, I will show you how the iPad can come in handy for doing candid portraits.

And now, back to the world of books…

Hasta mañana.

 

TORN BUILDING

TORN BUILDING / iPhone 6 Plus / Snapseed / PhotoForge 2

I shot this from the taxi at the corner of Calle Cedro and Paseo de la Reforma, on last April Fool's Day, on my way to the American Express office in Mexico City to book a flight. That's all the caption you get. Take a moment, though, look it over, and see what story the photo tells you. What are you seeing? What all are you seeing? What might it all mean?

As you can see, I'm having a hard time getting away from PhotoForge 2. One heck of an app. Too bad Yahoo killed it.

Sorry, but the book news will have to wait until tomorrow, or even until after the weekend. We'll see. This is a busy time for us, and I'll bet it is for you, too.

Hasta mañana.

 

MUD AND STEEL

MUD AND STEEL / iPhone 6 Plus / Snapseed

Street photography? Still life? Travel? I'm not quite sure what to call this photographic study in composition, color and contrast. I like the story it tells, a story of the humble, enduring, resistant adobe pueblo of Taos, and the modern, technologically advanced bicycle.

No word from Blurb, yet, regarding my missing Kachina books. Maybe tomorrow. I made some good progress today on my other book projects, though, and got some good painting time in, as well.

Hasta mañana.

 

DETAIL ~ TAOS PUEBLO

DETAIL ~ TAOS PUEBLO / iPhone 6+ / Snapseed

This is a shot from a recent visit to Taos Pueblo with my cousin, photographer Larry Mangino. I do love those mud and straw walls.

No news yet on Car Parts. Soon, though, plus more about The Life of a Photograph.

Racing the clock, again.

Hasta mañana.
