The Shady Side

There wasn’t a lot of shade, but there was a little bit beside an abandoned church. The small and infrequent trees didn’t offer much, so it was nice that the building stepped up to help.

Texan

I won’t lie: my photographic heart beats a little faster when I see an abandoned place that’s got a window I can look through. This time, I spotted the Texan Motel lobby, complete with a rack of outdated (probably) tourist brochures.

The array of summer flowers is dependent on winter moisture; every summer looks a little different. These flowers got plenty of whatever it was they needed – they were blooming all over the northeastern corner of New Mexico.

There are indeed a lot of rectangles here, broken up by the curves of that car, which for some reason has a “horseless carriage” license plate.
