Casa Immel on New Years morning

Chamita Homestead

No stories to tell, really. This is a hodgepodge of images made since the first of the year. Number one of our back forty after a snowy night is all about shadows and textures. It’s busy sucker. Another in the same vein is from Hernandez, NM just past the junction of US 285 and NM 74 in the village of Chamita. Chamita was the home of Los Abeytas before they migrated to Colorado’s San Luis Valley after the Treaty of Guadalupe. The sheep ranching family was the subject of my five-year immersion in the rural Hispano culture of family, faith, and the land. Do not ask about the book should have come out of that enriching experience.

La capilla, El Guiche

And speaking of faith, the tiny chapel or capilla in this grouping seemed like a private family church in a tidy compound astride county road 582 in El Guiche, NM.

Remote tagging

Ranch View Motel with Giant Burgers

And I wind up with a couple of spot color numbers, one from the snowy llano south of Taos and the other from plains of central New Mexico.

Trees and sky. What more could a I guy ask for?

What a great grouping of images or "tidbits"! Again, you knock it out of the park with the capilla in El Guiche, and near infra-red/high contrast of the Casa Immel tree on New Year's morning. The selective coloring of "remote tagging" is a perfect addition to your historic style of broad, low landscapes and massive skies. Your blog makes me feel warm all over, despite but perhaps because of the winter theme. Thanks for the inspiration and I dare say, hope!
