Theme Day-Reflections: San Francisco de Asis, Ranchos de Taos


San Francisco de Asis in Rancho de Taos is probably the most photographed church in New Mexico because of a Georgia O'Keeffe painting. This is a view of the main entrance on the east side of the building.  O'Keefe's painting is of the rear or west side. The small photo is the image painted by O'Keefe  I took these photos on a rainy afternoon in 2008.  Although I'm still in Saint Paul, Mn, I'm returning to Santa Fe on July 19 and will again be posting more photos on this site.

  5. Nice shot, and nice that you will be enjoying Santa Fe during the summer. I presume you will be going to the Opera.

    Julie and I talked about doing to Santa Fe for this 4th of July weekend and taking her mother with us, but we opted to stay in Scottsdale instead.
