We arrived in Santa Fe New Mexico late afternoon yesterday afternoon.
We have a 4 year old and an 8 month old in tow and so we are looking at things just a little differently. However, these are a few of my favorite things to look at when I visit this amazing place.
One of my favorite galleries has these statues in the window. I’m not sure of the name of the gallery, but I will source it again today.
Reminding me of our visit to white sands the other day. I love the simplicity of this image.
Just plain stunning.
Built in 1931, The Lensic is more than a theater to the people of Santa Fe. For most of the 20th century, The Lensic was a place for a first kiss in the balcony, a grand silver screen in the midst of the Depression, a vaudeville venue where the community could see the singers, actors, dancers, and comedians of the day. It was a place where magic happened. By the late 1990s, however, the theater had fallen into disrepair. Despite one-of-a-kind architecture and seating for more than 800 people, The Lensic was in danger of becoming an empty house when in 1999 a vision for a world-class performing arts center was born. It was time for a new chapter in the venerated theater’s life.
This was supper at the Los Magueyes Mexican Restaurant in Burro Lane. The food was good and plentiful, the music great, the margaritas a little week and the restrooms are lined with mirrors. A little shock for the unwary I must say.
The following images were taken in Carrizozo New Mexico on our way to Santa Fe.
Carrizozo is a town in New Mexico with a population of 996. Founded in 1899, the town provided the main railroad access for Lincoln County, and the town experienced significant population growth in the early decades of the 1900s. However, with declining relevance of the railroad, the population of the town has gradually declined. It’s know now for its statues of burros, some even hiding on rooftops.
