1. Earlier this week, my blogging friend from Infrared Robert and I exchanged a series of comments on our tendencies to second-guess ourselves.
2. I usually write my blog posts a week or so in advance, which gives me a cushion if I get busy and also gives me ample time to (you see where I am going here) second guess myself.
3. Every now and then, I’ll look at a post and think, “Nope. Won’t work.”
4. And that’s exactly what happened last night. I looked at what I’d scheduled for today and hated it. I can’t even think why I wanted to post it in the first place. In a manner of speaking, then, I took a re-vote on the photo. So, instead you get this shot, which I made on the plaza beside the famous and overly-photographed church at Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico*. I have an interest in the regular things that happen in places like Ranchos de Taos, which surely gets overloaded with camera-toting tourists. I wonder what it’s like to have a house there, or run the little cafe. And I think about who feeds that big black cat I saw on an adobe wall. Or who brings the newspapers in from Albuquerque and Taos to put in the machines. And if anyone even buys papers any more.
5. There was a re-vote and Kit Carson Park is now known as Red Willow Park.**

*Google it and you’ll see what I mean.
**A song about Kit Carson; that name change was a little bit overdue.
