Trash, and a burro


There’s a one-block-long street in Santa Fe called Burro Alley; in the 19th century it was the place where firewood sellers would park their wood-laden donkeys. And then, apparently, the sellers would spend the money on booze and hookers.*

Now it’s just a little side street, with a burro-festooned gate and some trash containers.

*Historical note: in over seven years of blogging, this is the first time I’ve used the term “booze and hookers.” I mention it because I thought you’d want to know.

Water fountain reflections


The water fountain on the Plaza in Santa Fe had a nice reflection of the shops across the street.

Two traditions


The very formal stone marker in the foreground and the Virgin of Guadalupe in her niche behind it are a fairly accurate representation of the way cultures in New Mexico co-exist.

Leading up


This blue sky and friendly clouds were the lead up to a big storm that chased us away from the open rocks.  (Come back tomorrow to see what the sky looked like as the storm approached.)

Every photographer in existence takes this shot, right?
