Saintly and Colorful



Shadows, that is.













El Bruno's in Cuba, NM (not the country Cuba, but the town in NM). A 'must' stop along Hwy. 550 that connects the Four Corners area to the rest of the state. Cuba is a town that most just drive through unless they know about Bruno's. Then it becomes a part of the travel routine-you intentionally schedule it in if you know you'll be on the 550. It is full of charm and the menu is typical of New Mexican cuisine. Hot and spicy! The original site for this restaurant was across the street, but a few years ago, it suffered a devastating fire that took it down to the ground. Like the Phoenix rising, they made a comeback by taking over a small building across the street and over the years, it has grown into what it is today. Full of charm and funk and good food.

If you're there during the warmer months of the year, you can dine al fresco out in the patio surrounded by hand carved Santeros (Saints) and shadows.

What's there not to like?


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!

A great place and I would love to visit there, too!! Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend!!

We hope the saints will protect us (if needed) from the Fiery cuisine. Cuba NM looks like it needs a couple of visitors to arrive from Connecticut sometime...

I love the colors on the restaurant and the saints. Now I must look up St. Bruno- not one familiar to me.

I love shadow shots that make me ask, "What's going on there?!" Love how the shadows merge and the colors in that last shot.

I've been to Four Corners, but did not know about this place- must go back!

I like the looks of the place and the food sounds delightful.

The shadows added to the spirituality of the photos. In the first it looked as though there was a slipped halo and in the second it reminded me of a forbidden sign. The place sounds wonderful.
