Santa Fe / Taos - March 2006

Previous Image Places Next Image

Another photography workshop, this time a non-shooting affair with Joyce Tenneson at Santa Fe Photography Workshops, provided an excuse to photograph in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico.  In a sense, this represented a return to my youth, since I spent the summers of 1963-66 on the staff of Philmont Scout Ranch northeast of Santa Fe, visiting Taos a couple times in that period.  That was the first time I saw sepia-toned photographs, so the several sepia tonings below are sort of a tribute to those memories.
