ranchos de taos, for caterina




Posted by Picasa

THIS CHURCH DATES BACK TO 1772 and you can see why it has always been frequently photographed and painted.
the first two shots are of the church's buttesses in the back, my favorite great big chunk of adobes!
there's a regular mudding of the adobes by many, many people to keep those walls all intact. adobe can be washed away, disintegrated by the weather over time, as you can see in the third photo.
as it should be, well cared for and appreciated .... daily!!


  1. Such blue sky .... it looks as if it moves ever so swiftly miles above .... like a deep swift current that is above rather than below.

  2. the color and smoothness of the buildings make me so happy~elk
