This weekend I’m in the beautiful state of New Mexico visiting my good friends Gong and Bonnie, who live in Santa Fe. It’s my first trip here ever, and it’s beautiful. The light, in particular, is unnaturally gorgeous. Or, at least, that’s how I’m explaining the photos I’ve been taking today.
My friends live along a dirt road that’s dotted with small clusters of these uneven, odd-sized mailboxes.
I heard the sky here was big, but it’s really big. This picture was taken from the Railyard district of Santa Fe.
There’s a lot of money here, and a lot of it is spent on art, apparently. I took this photograph of a Buddha᾿s head sculpture from the ceramic sculptor Jun Kaneko through the glass of a downtown gallery.
And, of course, because I᾿m a dog person: a picture of Annie, newly adopted into Gong and Bonnie’s home. The pink bandage is from an I.V. from an operation she had last week.
