Christmas and Rancho de Taos

Leading up to Christmas I worked on a story about Sacred Places in New Mexico. I think we could have been a bit more extensive in the selections but I can't really complain because I got to go back to one of my favorite churches ever. San Francisco de Asis Church in Rancho de Taos, also known as Georgia O'Keeffe's church. The latter name does not sit well with the parishioners we learned.

At each church we visited we focused on one person or a couple and their relationship to the church. At the Rancho de Taos church we found a couple who are Mayordomes in the parish. Here is their story: San Francisco de Asis Church, Rancho de Taos.

Here's an outtake from the day I spent there. It is probably the most recognizable angle.

Birthday Month

January is birthday month in my family. Great grandma turned 90 on Jan. 2, grandma turned 70 today, Jan. 7, and I will be 24 on Jan. 17th. I set up this four generation shot when I went home for the holidays. Oh and not to leave mom out, her birthday is July 11, and I probably shouldn't post her age because she reads this. :)

So from left to right, grandma Monique, me, great grandma Berthe (nickname Da), and my mom, Lise.

Albuquerque's only snow day, so far, resulted in a mass of children in the parks playing in the snow. I took my turn down the ramp too.

Oops... Happy New Year?

So I've slacked...

One of many New Year's resolutions... get back on track with blogging.

This year I'm going to take on the challenge of limiting each blog post to one photo to help with my editing skills. Hopefully this will prompt more frequent posts. Hopefully.
