It has been 12 yrs since my husband and I took a trip without our son. We did a quick overnight stay in Santa Fe, NM. He wanted to drive his car and I wanted to take some photos. I thought I would share a few of them with you.
We stopped in Santa Rosa to see the Blue Hole and to take a peak at a car museum.
I had the wrong lens and the sun made terrible shadows, but here is my husband in front of the Blue Hole which is very deep and very very blue.
Dan wanted a shot of his car in front of the museum.
Santa Fe was busy even though we went on a Thursday. I can’t imagine what it is like during high tourist season. We parked the car at the hotel and walked everywhere.
I enjoyed seeing all the different people and took some street shots of a few of them.
My favorite shot was of this man I named, The Drifter. He looked so cool in this shot.
But then this shot he looked lost and a bit sad.
I regret not sitting by him and talking to him, but fear kept me away. I wish it hadn’t. I had a zoom lens so he never even knew I captured images of him.
I also thought these 2 people sitting and visiting in the Plaza looked pretty neat.
I tend to be drawn to people that are very different from myself. I noticed this couple while my husband and I listened to a man play his guitar and we ate our ice cream.
Santa Fe décor is not my style, but I loved capturing the images and colors of it.
If you do love the look of Santa Fe there are many opportunities to purchase items from the local vendors or the hundreds of stores that line the streets.
Santa Fe is full of history and religion. The churches are beautiful.
If you have time to Google the story of the staircase of the Loretto Chapel, it is very interesting. Here they are.
The stairs were amazing and Chapel was just gorgeous.
The tree outside of this church was full of Rosaries.
I forgot the name of this church but the inside was breath taking.
And the oldest church and house were next to each other.
Doors were kinda small back then.
I got really excited to find a camera shop.
But the inventory was very slight.
The architecture is so different in Santa Fe.
It was really fun to explore parts unknown.
A quick overnight trip was perfect for us to reconnect and have some fun. We will definitely do another one.
