The Art of Trees – Santa Fe

My holiday road trip on and off Route 66 took me to Santa Fe for a couple of days. It was a week into the new year and crowds were thin. We were able to wander the town square and other areas taking pictures without waiting on people and cars to exit the frame.  We stayed just off the square at La Posada de Santa Fe, also known as the art hotel of Santa Fe.  Filled with original works of art for sale, it was perfect. Also perfect, was the Georgia O’Keeffe museum.  Here are some “tree-full” memories from the Santa Fe art scene and landscape.

The Art of Trees – Arizona

I recently spent a week driving from Southern California to Houston Texas with a photographer friend. We drove from Indio, CA, through Sedona, Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon South Rim, Santa Fe, Amarillo, and finally home over the period of a week. Along the way we travelled through the Navajo Indian Reservation and intermittently on Route 66. Our primary mission was to photograph rock formations and Route 66 memorabilia, but then there were also trees. Not as many trees as we were used to (living in The Woodlands, TX) but still beautiful trees. These are my favorites from Arizona.
