I belong to a theology discussion group. We planned this retreat to Glorieta probably 6th moths ago and I was ready for some time outside Lubbock. For those like me who are not familar with Glorieta; Glorieta is a gigantic conference ground for churches and been around forever.
Fri/Sat: The retreat was pretty intense (in a wonderful way) and I was incredibly wiped out afterwards. I regret that I don't have any pictures of our tea time at the St. Francis Hotel. Regret. Didn't have my cam. I wish I got a good shot of our waitress. She was very beautiful and polite, and the light situation in the hotel was ideal. Gigantic windows.
Sun: Norm and I went back into Santa Fe so I could take some pictures. I was very excited to try the new monopod. Truly loved the monopod and also just being there.
I took the first picture just off the main square. I was totally unprepared when this gaggle of gals were strutting my way but made a quick move and got this. Note their expressions. I later encountered them again at the Blue Corn Cafe. I am discovering that f/4 is always too open for direct daylight.
The blanket picture is from the jewelry vendors on the North side of the square. More on this area to come. Great colors.
I thought the pepper light thing looked very Santa Fe. This is a door of a Xmas shop. I am now wondering if I could have shot this from the side and got more of the show window and the stretch of the sidewalk.
The final picture is Norman in a cool bookstore whose name I can't remember. Santa Fe has so many great colors.
Tomorrow, I'll post some fashion shots. It's all about the fabric in Santa Fe.
