desert fire

No specific reason for the strange location, except that there was an empty fountain in the park and B and I thought it would be cool to take photos in it.  I wore this scarf with pretty much everything while I was in New Mexico.  It looks like an abstract painting of a southwestern sunset to me, so it seemed fitting.

chile field

It still blows me away to see fields of red and green chiles growing all over the place, so I went wild with the photos.

I've been going on and on about the New Mexico landscape in the past few posts, so I thought I would share my favorite landscape by Peter Hurd, who captures the Hondo Valley so perfectly.



This particular piece is at the Roswell Museum and Art Center, which B and I have visited a few times and really has quite an impressive selection.  Also cool: you can pass by this very spot and still see the original house and trees that you see here in the painting.

Those chilis are so beautiful with the light coming over them. And your boots, of course, steal the show for me; I'm glad you put them with the grey leggings--they really stand out.

Thanks for your insightful comment on the SOS post. I really appreciate it, and your input is especially interesting, since you get a lot of comments.

As always, beautiful!

the southwestern inspired scarf is so perfect- and chiles on the landscape are so surreal! enjoying your pictures of your trip

Diane said...

Those leggings with the booties - yes yes! So perfect.

Also, I love the neat little fact you worked in about how you can still see the original house and trees in the painting. Very cool, indeed.

Also also, I did love that dog you posted photos of on Sunday! He's such a beautiful dog and you got great photos of him. Man, I want a dog so badly!
