Santa Fe’s lines and size: a small city with circles, curves, and stripes

I find myself this week photographing shapes and colors and textures, rather than statues and buildings and famous places.  Santa Fe is a giant art work everywhere- the adobe-style architecture, the plant life, the thoughtful placement of public objects and art, and the sky and clouds.

I’m told that people don’t move here in droves because of the lack of jobs and the relative high cost of living.  Unlike Portland, which has exploded in the last decade with both retirees and 20-somethings looking for the groovy, creative life, Santa Fe has managed to stay relatively small.

Even a waiting bench at a museum had intricate metal art!

The lucky residents can enjoy a continual stream of visual beauty every day without huge traffic jams!
