Ripples and Ridges



When we visited the Spring Harvest Festival at Tierra Wools in beautiful downtown Los Ojos I thought that I'd grab some folksy shots of sheep being sheared and weavers at their looms. And while that was there for the taking it was the rippled and bent corrugated roof of Tierra Wools that captured my fancy. Got a thing about the angles, shadows and edges that the low brow metal reveals.

Tierra Wools is the soul of tiny Los Ojos which sits just north of Tierra Amarilla on the way to Chama. It's a worthy day trip and absolutely brimming with character. While you're there check out my friend Fred Black's extraordinary rugs. Or see them at www.bigsageartisans.com.

Love your ridge images of Tierra Wools! More to come, we hope. Los Ojos is packed with possibilities.

Many thanks for your kind words about Fred's weaving and for linking his website. Above, beyond, and most appreciated.

My eyes love the patterns, but my mind goes to the clouds and the deep mysterious shadow. Interesting. Images to live with!
