Early Morning Shadows

Early morning in Santa Fe, NM is the best time to capture our clear, high-desert light. The city is still and quiet. Tourists have not budged from their beds yet. Cool morning temps are accented by warm sunlight filtering through trees, wrapping shadows around mud-brown adobes. Canyon Road, a narrow busy street of shops and galleries, is empty at 7:00 in the morning. The occasional “local” jogs by, out for an early run with their dog. It’s a lovely town at this time of day, transporting you back to a neighborhood owned by native Santa Feans, children playing by the river, and the school bell ringing in the old brick one-room school-house on the hill.

Ancient Tile

Ancient Tile

Sometimes it’s all about the details. Walk through the streets of Santa Fe, New Mexico and you’ll come across panels of brightly colored Mexican tile on the exterior of many adobe buildings. Just a bit of  frivolity and whimsy to brighten the mud-brown walls of the city. I particularly like photographing these decorative architectural elements, as they make beautiful microstock images used as “patterns” or “backgrounds”.

Adobe with Turquoise Window

The Turquoise Window

There’s something about warm earthen adobe walls, wooden vigas and windows trimmed in turquoise that says you are in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Take a stroll down Canyon Road and you might spy this window tucked among the art galleries. I love the simple graphic quality of this vignette, captured on an early morning walk.
