Santa Fe Shadows








It was so lovely
to visit with dear friends...
family really..
they are THAT dear..
in Santa Fe...





and so nice to be back in the 
City Different..

as you know, I am enamored of 
crumbling splendor
and Santa Fe has it...





If you go, I highly recommend going for the 
Thanksgiving holiday...
the smell of piñon in the air ...
 green chiles and eggs for breakfast..
and the roaring fires are so romantic...





of course there is the light...
the reason that so many artists 
use NM as their muse...






and that brilliant blue sky...






a color that I have never seen anywhere else...
and you know that I am a fan of Caribbean blues...






we did get to the 
Georgia O'Keefe Museum
as you can see from the photos...
and that was really wonderful,






but for the most part
we just enjoyed our friends,
being together 
and hanging out...







it does a heart good
to be in a place that celebrates art
and great food...








The lights on the plaza were wonderful
and although we missed the Farolitos
we did see lanterns and luminarias
everywhere we went...





What a beautiful place to be inspired..
to soak up the festivities...








and to just 
BE
together...
after all...

that is what the 
Holidays are really all about...

Lovely shadows captured here dear Cat.
We were totally charmed and smitten with our visit there.
I see we took some similar pix too LOL ♥
I am finding it a bit challenging to settle back into things here.
Maybe next time we won't be ships passing in the night/shadows and we will finally get to meet.

hi Cat,
enchanting photos...places like NM,
AZ and Mexico are on my list
of places to live
next lifetime.
somewhere
where the sky is blue
the people are friendly
and the towns are filled with culture.
oh yes, and the zesty foods!

Pamela, oh, you must get back to Santa Fe, it is still wonderful and such an inspiring place for artists! x

Santa Fe is a place I would love to visit. Your beautiful photos have made me want to go even more, if that is possible.

You have been traveling so much this year, Caterina.

I want also to mention that I appreciate your eye for the cast shadow in these photos. There is something about a shadow - it's not real - but it is so very real.
