Grace and I joined a photographic tour organized by Dave Wyman of Image Quest and co-led by Ken Rockwell of KenRockwell.com. We arrived at Albuquerque airport at 7 pm Thursday, November 6. The whole group of eight photographers, gathered from all corners of the US, came to meet us at the airport and drove us to Albuquerque old town to have dinner. They gave us the warmest welcome and let us felt at home right away. After all, we are all photographers.
The trip started the next morning of a visit to the Albuquerque's old town plaza and the San Felipe de Neri Church. The day was just beautiful. We could have photographed the adobe wall against the turquoise colored sky all day. We left Albuquerque to Santa Fe by way of Turquoise Trail, and passing by many old mining towns. We arrived at Santa Fe in the afternoon and finished the day by walking alone and photographing the Santa Fe Old Town Plaza. After sunset, we drove further north to Tao and settled in Adobe Wall Motel to get us ready for venturing into the Tao Pueblo country for the next few days. Here are a few of our photographs of the day.
