Carpenter saint in his niche

I like this guy – he seems content with his niche-based existence. But I am not sure why those rocks are lined up to watch him work.

Hammock

The week felt like this

A sad little still life – all lipstick prints and coffee and a crumpled napkin. Some days feel like this, right?

And so do some weeks.

Dashboard Palette

A beat-up truck in front of an art gallery was itself a piece of art, with that canvas thick with paint on the dashboard. And then, as I stood there, the back window turned itself into a picture frame. (That votive candle in the snow on the hood brought a little bit to the scene, as well.)

Not Random. Probably.

There are 64,331 interments in the National Cemetery in Santa Fe. I chose this one, more or less randomly, to photograph because I could get a good angle on the graves and flags. And the desiccated rose was nice, too.

And then it got weird: turns out that Kay Wiest was a photographer: the Kay Wiest Negative Collection (4,000 4×5 negatives) documents her work as a staff photographer at the Institute of American Indian Arts from 1964-1971.

So, maybe it wasn’t a random selection, after all.
