Two of my favorite things – an empty restaurant and some reflections – came together in one place the other day.

no need for sheet music

What can I say? The reflections reminded me of sheet music…

The only window low enough

My progression toward the “Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico” church ended here, peering through the only window that was low enough for me to get to. The churchyard is overgrown with weeds and cactus and there’s nothing to indicate it is still an active church.

There’s something carved over there on the far wall, and traditional vigas make up the ceiling structure. But that’s about all I could get.

Other than that fantastic reflection of my camera. And my manicure, of course, because grooming is important.

Town’s simple rhythms

I stopped to get some photos of a car wash (I always think I’ll like photos of car washes, but to date I haven’t actually made any that are bloggable.) It had rained earlier in the day, and that nice puddle caught my attention, and then I saw the reflection of all that stuff.

And the car wash photos? I’ll just say you won’t see them here.

The past, reflected in the past

The old buildings at the Pierce Point Ranch are kept up, and nicely painted white, which I hope is a nod to making them even more photogenic. (But, since the place is listed with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the white’s probably historic. And photogenic – no reason it can’t be both, right?)

If you get yourself lined up just right you can see a little piece of the past reflected in the bunkhouse window.
