Doorways and Gates #2


When DH and I take Maggi, our dog, on daily walks in our neighborhood we pass many entrance gates, each unique to the casa.  Some are stained or unpainted, but many have the favorite New Mexico colors of blue or turquoise in varied shades.

  13. That is such a lovely blue, perfect for the colours of New Mexico. I can see why blue is an oft-chosen colour there.

  17. Kate, your blog indicates that it is 27 degrees in Santa Fe. You are going to LOVE Charleston! And - you will go nuts with your camera. Your photos are always so interesting I can't wait to see what you do with my city!

  22. This one would make me swoon, although I will deny it if anyone asks me about it. Great hues on the adobe and brilliant turquoise blue on the door/gate.
