Warm Fire

Warm Fire.blog

In 2003, we stayed in Santa Fe for four months, and one day we took a drive up to see the Taos Pueblo. There was an admission charge, of course, and an extra charge to use a camera on the grounds, so I gave my fairly new at the time Nikon 990, which had a whopping 3.3 MP, to DH so he could take pictures as I would be busy chatting with a friend that was with us. Don’t laugh; that Nikon was State of the Art at the time, and actually took very good pictures. I still have it but the form factor of the card is a problem for transferring the pictures to a computer.

Why did I call this blog post Warm Fire? It is hard to read, but the printing on the door says “warm fire”, and that is what we always called this photograph. The words are easier to read in the original photograph – I took liberties with it to make it look even more “warm”.

Here is the original:

In some ways, I like the original better. It shows more accurately the real colors of the buildings and wood as they were on that dreary, overcast day. I like to think that a more pleasant, sunshiny day would have produced the warmer version.

Which do you like better? The more I look at the two of them, the more undecided I become!

    I definitely like the original the best. In fact, when I scrolled down and saw it I knew immediately it was better – well, in my opinion at least.

    I prefer the edited version – though both are beautiful color and composition.

    Judie, I prefer the original and its vivid, true blues.

    An excellent capture! While my comments have been lacking over the summer months I wanted you to know how much I enjoy following your blog. I embarked on a huge decluttering project! I feel so much lighter now that it’s over.
