POTD: All Sales Cash

All Sales Cash
Boise City, New Mexico
2011

Cash flow at the Boise City grain elevator seems to have been a little tight as of late. (Just for the record, I’m not 100% positive this photo was taken at Boise City since I forgot to write it down. But looking at a map of the route I was on and the time of day, I’m pretty sure that’s the correct location.)

I found it quite interesting that this 600 room Anasazi dwelling was constructed in the same time frame as the castles in Wales I’ve been to. In a number of ways, the Welsh could have learned quite a bit from the Anasazi builders–I never saw corners of castles in Wales as sharp and well-defined as those at Pueblo Bonito. On the other hand the Anasazi didn’t seem to be much into steps, preferring ladders instead I guess.

I’m thinking of taking up the challenge of seeing how far into spring and summer I can take a new photo like this every day. So far it hasn’t been that much of a challenge. Well, truthfully there’s been a few days in April without snow on the trees, but not many. This photo is from a couple of days ago and I see there’s even more snow on the branches this morning. That’s not a complaint (because I said I wouldn’t complain), just an observation.

This magpie seems perfectly paired with the spring snow environment outside our windows.

I just took this a few days ago on our patio. That snow has since melted but there’s more on the way. However, given the tornadoes in the South yesterday, the flooding in the Midwest, and the drought in the Southwest, I think I’m going to try and refrain from complaining about our 139% above normal snow pack and the winter that just won’t go away. (I’m still going to grumble about it–just not too loudly.)

POTD: Slack Time

Slack Time
Taos, New Mexico

April is off-season in Taos, giving this member of the wait-staff at a local restaurant time to take a little breather between customers.

One more image from Taos Pueblo. It’s interesting how a nice straight trim job can make a bunch of unruly sticks look so formal and orderly–kind of the same effect as a good haircut.

This is Connie’s shadow, but for some reason–perhaps because we were near her stomping grounds–it has me thinking of Georgia O’Keefe. Oh, maybe this is why:
