South of Santa Fe...

New Mexico has a variety of different landscape... something for everyone.  I love the mountain view, but this area is "not bad"...

Thanks for looking,

fernando... 90% was social time

 By: cshimokita : November 8th, 2018-23:20
and way too much wine... I was lucky to reach 10% with my photography ; ) Casey

I would do the same. ;)

Even then, you managed to score some nice shots! Best fernando

Don't see too much of Adams work in Santa Fe

 By: cshimokita : November 8th, 2018-23:24
there are some photographers working but lots of painting, pottery, jewelry, and things New Mexico. There are 800 real estate brokers in the area and I spend some time looking at some of my friend's listings and/or recently sold property... there are so m... 

Bill... I was thinking more along the lines of Georgia O'Keeffe...

But I hear you... Hernandez, NM is a few miles north and one of my favorite Adams photographs. Casey

Your choice of B&W is intriguing.

 By: DruidPadj : November 8th, 2018-18:46
I imagine the landscape to be rather monochromatic. If that's right, then you lose nothing in potential drama by going with monochrome, and heighten the dark and light areas as a result. I think.

DruidPadj... I shot 50/50 b&w / color...

 By: cshimokita : November 8th, 2018-23:30
There is beautiful color in NM... the aspens were just turning golden down along the Rio Grande... We might see some color as I scan the remaining rolls. I could just as well shot all color ; ) Casey

All rather excellent.

The ones I'd frame are the second and last image . Cheers, Filip

The last is also a favorite...

 By: cshimokita : November 8th, 2018-23:38
Thanks Filip... it's only about 45 minutes south of Santa Fe but already very different landscape. Typical of the area between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Bandelier National Monument over in the direction of Los Alamos is a must see... I was there last visi...

especially in monochrome the last one is my preferred one cheers

Thank you Quan...

The second and last were taken from the same bench that you see in the first photo... low afternoon sun, enjoying some time on the patio before heading back toward the mountains... the only thing that compares to the views is the food ; ) Casey

Great photos Casey.. [nt]

It's always a surprise what comes up in the scanning process...

 By: cshimokita : November 9th, 2018-00:57
Sometimes no choice but to peak ahead at the negatives ; ) Thanks for the comment. Casey

I am scanning more as we speak ; )

 By: cshimokita : November 9th, 2018-13:22
Some color next week .... Casey

Way to go 👍 [nt]

Very nice set of monochrome photos

 By: xplorer2 : November 9th, 2018-06:16
Everytime I see shots like that, makes me want to book another trip to New Mexico. White Sands National Monument remains on my list of places to visit that I have not got a chance on my trips to New Mexico. Have to plan that in for the next trip there. Je... 

Good idea Jeff...

 By: cshimokita : November 9th, 2018-13:35
I have not been to White Sands, but have it surrounded ... T-or-C, Las Cruces, Carlsbad, Roswell ; ) I will definitely be back. Casey

Great pictures

I,ve lived long time in northern Texas and we traveled the area in New Mexico often. Good to see nothing changed .thanks for sharing

A number of Texans have second homes in Santa Fe...

the traffic has gotten heaver the last few years and the (good) restaurants are packed but the landscape is more or less the same ; ) Thanks for taking the time to comment Jurry... maybe it's time for you to make another visit to the American SW... Casey

Over due

 By: Jurry : November 10th, 2018-02:09
Such a visit is long over due but it’s a long way from Dubai where I currently live.

Well, when the time is right ; )

 By: cshimokita : November 10th, 2018-09:29
From the photos I have seen, Dubai would be an interesting destination as well. Casey


 By: Jurry : November 10th, 2018-19:44
Interesting is very understated. those who come here for the first time, re typically overwhelmed. That’s including those who have travelled the world and think they’ve seen it all I not saying that the streets are paved with gold but in some hotels you’l...

Thanks for a peek... Sounds like you are having some ride. As you might expect we only see some of the surface. Not sure what the street photo 'rules' are but I am very open to see what's behind the curtain. Post some photos when ever you have the time. C...
