We had a most delightful walk at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. It happened that we were there on Veteran's Day Weekend, so admission was free-- Thank you, vets! As I recall from my only previous visit there (about the same time of year) it can get crowded on a Saturday morning and make people-free shooting difficult. We got there about 9, and the masses didn't seem to arrive (with a lot of young children) until about 10. It is a gorgeous location. Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, near Cochiti, New Mexico. 9 November 2013.

Two more from Santa Fe. Santa Fe, New Mexico. 9 November 2013.

I'm on retreat in Santa Fe for a few days, and between reading a variety of interesting books, I've been giving my camera some exercise. Above is the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis, from my room. The kiva fireplace in my room and the quarter-hour peal of the cathedral bells make for a most ideal setting. Santa Fe, New Mexico. 5 November 2013.

 New Mexico Art Museum. What's not to love about adobe and blue sky?
 Self portrait.

The early morning light makes Kateri Tekakwitha look as if she has tears on her face.

These are all from a 2011 trip to Arusha, Tanzania, on a teaching project, that included 2, 4 night stays in the Serengeti. I realized that I never posted them, and since this blog sometimes serves as my 'cloud' when I need an image I've shot, I figured I'd load 'em all up at once (well, actually, there are thousands more, and I haven't included the best because I hope to be able to sell them).
