Santa Fe in Black and White
Santa Fe is a ritzy town at a 7000 foot elevation surrounded by desert. Population is only 68,000. It’s the capitol of New Mexico too. I wandered up to nearby Tesuque and further on to Abiquiu and the Ghost Ranch, an area that inspired many of Georgia O’keeffe’s paintings. The food here is based on Mexican cuisine, but the red and green chile sauces are unique to New Mexico. Most buildings are adobe or a simulated adobe sometimes called Santa Fake. Some structures date back to the 17th century. There are also many art galleries. Note the engine in the rail yard was painted for a Bond movie. It actually belongs to Santa Fe Southern.
