Car with Guadalupe

Car with Guadalupe

Car with Guadalupe” is a once-in-a-lifetime photo! It was photographed back in the mid-90’s when I was still shooting film (you remember film don’t you). One sunny morning, I was driving in downtown Santa Fe when my eye caught this enticing vignette. I couldn’t have set-up a more perfect photo! Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me. Praying that the rusty car would stay parked before the eye-popping Guadalupe fresco, I rushed home to grab my camera and a roll of Kodachrome – a 20 minute drive both ways! Luckily I returned to find everything untouched. Standing in the middle of the street, I had just minutes to snapped several photos from this vantage point before 4 lanes of traffic threaten bodily harm.

The mural was stuccoed over many years ago and I never saw that car again. But I thank the photo gods that I was in the right place, at the right time. Today I consider this image one of my quintessential Santa Fe photos! Plus one of the most popular selections in my Dreamstime portfolio.
