Here’s part of the road (I-25) from Colorado to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
If you ever need to drive from the Boulder/Denver, Colorado area to (or from) Santa Fe, New Mexico, the gray route on the left in this image is the most scenic, the one to take if you only get one shot at it. Lots of mountain views and ranches, and many small towns.
Once you get off of I-25, the blue road that goes through Taos is also very scenic, and is particularly pretty in the winter. I usually take the gray road back to Colorado, and the Taos road down to Santa Fe.
This is a photo of a sidewalk in front of an art museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. (Sorry, I don’t remember the name of the museum and I’m too lazy atm to look it up.)
I applied a Gaussian Blur effect to the cars on the right and the bright stuff at the end of the corridor (using Gimp), and it’s amazing how much that makes the rest of the image “pop” out. Nothing else has been altered.
Probably the main theme of the book is about people who are afraid. Presumably they’re afraid of dying, and the result is that they’re afraid of living. Meanwhile, a teenage girl who has good reason to be afraid encounters these people who are afraid of life, and eventually realizes that a fear of life is no way to live. Despite a horrific thing that has happened in her recent past, she makes a conscious decision to live her life.
Here’s a photo of the view in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
This is a painting of a Native American Indian that I saw in Santa Fe, New Mexico. (Sorry, I don’t know the artist’s name.)
As seen in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 2017.
I was going through some photos recently and came across this one of The Feed Store Church, which is between Alamosa and Monte Vista, a rural area in southern Colorado. I pass it when I drive back home after visiting Taos, Los Alamos, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. I thought it was some sort of a combination of a feed store and a church, but it turns out that it’s a church.
Seeing that we had another snow storm here in Colorado, I thought I'd share another photo of El Sanctuario de Chimayo in the winter. (El Sanctuario de Chimayo, near Santa Fe, New Mexico)
If you happen to walk down the right side street in Santa Fe, New Mexico, you’ll come across this Burro Alley painting on a wall.
