San Francisco de Asis Church: Ranchos de Taos

    Newer Older

    This is my homage to Georgia O'Keeffe ( And maybe Reddirtrose too). I was always fond of her paintings of this church. To me, this building is one of those quintessential images of New Mexico.

    My favorite painting in the Amon Carter Museum is Ranchos Church, New Mexico, 1930–31 by O'Keeffe.

      Paul Strand and Ansel Adams made several prints using the same subject. Definitely one of my favorites. Nice photo.

      Thank you for publicizing the great building. The contrast between the nature, expressed by the sky, and the human hand, which builds square houses with strong angle is there.
      You manage to keep a nice sky while mainatining the tones on the walls
