What strikes the visitor to Santa Fe is the organic nature of the architecture: massive adobe walls on all fronts, delicate archways, ancient churches.
San Miguel Mission Church is the oldest church in the U.S. (yes, look it up) and whilst not a huge building, has its own charm, in part because it has survived so long.
As a photographer I was drawn to the sunlight and shadow on the north wall at late morning. The texture of the adobe fascinates me. Just like the church in Rancho Taos, the flecks you may see in the walls are not spots on the negative but pieces of straw poking out through the adobe.
More Santa Fe coming up.
