A Day In The Life of....
















The remains of this old adobe church is just south of Abiquiu-the Inn at Abiquiu is less than 1/4 mile away. As you can see, it's been there for a while. Usually you can't get near the church because you'd have to scale a fence to do so, but the powers that be must've decided to let visitors come in and take photos (perhaps the fence suffered from those desperate to get closer?). It was nice to be able to walk around and take photos to your hearts content as the last time I was here, I had to shoot through the holes in the fence wire.

It was a beautiful day to be out-a perfect fall day. My son and I were glad we could get up close and see the church of Santa Rosa de Lima. It made it easy to be a shadow sleuth today!


Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

lovely old ruins and I especially like your photo with a peek to the scenery behind the walls.

The adobe structure walls were built so well that they exist six centuries later. Too bad about the roof being gone, as this looks like such a simple place to worship the one true God. Happily the fence is moved for the pilgrims in the area...

OOOH I love that open doorway and the one above where the shadow seems to be winning over the light.

What a stark beauty. Reason # I've lost count to do an in-depth visit of New Mexico.
