Santa Fe Unlimited :)

santa fe 2

Anyone who has been there, will agree that Santa Fe is a unique and a very, very charming city. We took a rather long winded route to reach there but as we drove into the city, the late afternoon sun became an artist, bathing the ochre-colored mud adobe buildings in its golden, luminous light...........even the commercial establishments like Target, CVS, Super 8 etc. housed in (fake) adobe structures, that they say is synonymous with Santa Fe style, glowed beautifully in that waning light........and since we were visiting during the festive season, most of the buildings were crowned with "farolitos" - the paper lamps with a votive candle in the center and filled with little sand for stability - in fact they were everywhere- thousands of them adorning driveways, both sides of thoroughfares, rooftops, atop churchyard walls...........I do sound like I was enchanted, don't I ......it isn't hard to fall in love with that city :)

You certainly appear to have captured enchantment - not so easy to do in a city. But the glowing colours and simple but beautiful structures make it a beauty of a place. I especially love the angles and perspective in that second to last shot.

the way the shadow falls on the top most pic does the trick. would be curious what's on the other side of the street.

Great photographs, but I have the feeling the buildings are not as old as they look.

A photographers paradise. The rich tones and architecture are quite amazing. I love the composition of each picture. I really must go there sometime. Fascinating.

They say 'travel broadens the mind' and sure, I've never been to the US, but just looking at these pics, I almost feel my mind stretching .... what a wonderful place this is!!!

And I have tagged you .... don't know where you'll put it up should you decide to do it, but I was curious about you & so decided to tag you anyway. Come see what its about :)
