Georges Seurat : Updated

It’s not really “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte”, but modern-day Paris has its own panache. I was shocked to read in his bio that M. Seurat was with us for barely 31 years. Clearly I … Continue reading

Cows in the Meadow

Not a very productive day – photowise – but there were some good shots to be had, even from the window of the van as we bumpity-bumped along the very rough gravel road on the way to Cascabel. As it … Continue reading

Santa Fe Fall Colors

Back in the dark ages of cameras, I had a super duper, twisty-turny Nikon 990 with a 3.3 MP sensor.  Actually I still have it, but the “film”-sized card doesn’t fit into anything current to read them, nor are they … Continue reading

Brown Canyon Ranch

We spontaneously took our lunch out to nearby Brown Canyon Ranch this afternoon.  The golden hour light was lovely.  There are nice trails there, and they allow horseback riding on them as well as hiking.  While we were there a … Continue reading

Pizza? Never on Monday or Tuesday

Because that’s when The Velvet Elvis is closed. I was re-strolling the streets of Patagonia a couple of days ago by scrolling through the photos that were taken on an excursion there about three years ago.  While waiting for the … Continue reading

Bruschetta from the Winery

This is my version of a representation of the delicious bruschetta that we purchased at the winery.  It was only a coincidence that I placed it on this chopping block/hot pad for its portrait.  I guess the complementary colors drew … Continue reading

The Other Side of the Trees

Here is the other side of the trees – from the winery – looking back down the road the way we came.  The winding road, looked at from this direction, is the tiny little line at the bottom left of … Continue reading

Farmhouse

After we left the winery, we drove on down the road towards Parker Canyon Lake, but it was getting late, so we turned around to head home.  But not before seeing this lovely home.  I have no idea who lives … Continue reading

Winding Road to Tres Trees at the Winery

As we started up the squiggly road to the winery, we screeched to a halt so I could take this photograph.  The way the road led to the trees on the horizon was irresistible!  And, no, I didn’t do anything … Continue reading

Sipapu

Eleven years ago, we spent a bit over four months in Santa Fe, where the photo ops never seemed to stop. This is one of my favorite art pieces that we saw there. It is entitled “Sipapu”, which is the … Continue reading

The Window and the Flag

A window into a partially lit room and a crumbling balcony made for an interesting photograph on our day trip to Bisbee on Monday. The flag visible in the lower right-hand corner piqued my interest. I thought it might be … Continue reading

Rose on a Rock

There were lots of rocks at Amerind, really big rocks, and I took pictures of many of them. Winnowing them down to the most interesting was a tough job, but here’s what I settled on. We all noticed that this … Continue reading

Saint Francis of Assisi at Amerind

It was an overcast day, but we found plenty to photograph at The Amerind Foundation yesterday. Right outside of the museum door are two lovely wooden statues. This is Saint Francis with his friends. It doesn’t look very stunning at … Continue reading

Chinaberry Tree in Tombstone, Arizona

A photo outing? Sure! I’m ready . . . well, except that I forgot to take my camera! GULP! But, true to form, Mama Judie’s Magic Purse to the rescue. I always carry a small, but more-than-adequate, Canon SD1100 8MP … Continue reading

The Original and The Colorful

The original, straight out of the camera, shot looked like this – above. Blah and boring. My first iteration was in my usual bright colors mode – like this – below. Charming on its own, but I wanted the “old” … Continue reading

Window to the Past

Once in a while I get unchained from the kitchen and venture out with my camera. Last Thursday a small group of “photo phanatics” drove over to a nearby ghost town for a couple of hours of living in the … Continue reading

The Buckhorn Restaurant – Silver City, New Mexico

No, this isn’t a sepia print. It looks just like that! AND it is a going concern. There is a menu posted in the window, and when I read it, I presumed it was fairly current because desserts were all … Continue reading
