The Dream

Azule Sky, originally uploaded by elefanterosado. It lies there beneath your eyelids just before you wake. You dream constantly that you will come back to this place where the sky is bigger than your own heart which yearns for it. The road which stretches for hundreds of miles through sand and clouds and desert heat. […]

Ranch Gate at Sundown

Ranch Gate at Sundown, originally uploaded by elefanterosado. What’s that song? “Like a red rubber ball?” Yeah, that’s the one. A rubber sky at sundown. Roasted Red. Fuch Ranch. Santa Rosa, New Mexico. (Back in Vermont now, so stay tuned for real blog posts to follow.)

Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Drag Racers

Don’t Let All Your Babies Grow Up To Be Drag Racers, originally uploaded by elefanterosado. Even though he could name all of the cars after the first tour, he insisted on going a second time. And a third, fourth and fifth. Finally we told him a few little white lies. Such as: “Today they’re only […]

Burnt Orange Sky

Burnt Orange Sky, originally uploaded by elefanterosado (away in New Mexico). The glowing embers of a burnt-orange sky spread like a smooth butter cream frosting over miles of cactus and prickly pear at day’s end. The sun’s gone down. Farewell, Land of Enchantment. I’m gonna miss you. Santa Rosa, New Mexico.

Quarai Ruins

Quarai Ruins, originally uploaded by elefanterosado (away in New Mexico). On the edge of the plains stands the abandoned Tiwa Pueblo Indian village of Quarai (ca. 1200-1670’s), the southern-most of the Tiwa villages, located along the eastern flanks of the Manzano Mountains. The Spanish Franciscan Mission Church of La Purisima Concepción (1630) is the most […]

Desperately Seeking Enchantment

Land of Enchantment, originally uploaded by elefanterosado (away in New Mexico). In mid August, the long, hot, wind-whipped expanse of I-40 stretches for what seems like interminable miles, from the eastern edge of Texas through the middling heartland of New Mexico. By Tucumcari one can feel the steady presence of The Land of Enchantment, that […]

Oh My Land

Oh My Land, originally uploaded by elefanterosado (away in New Mexico). Oh my land is like a wild goose Wanders all around everywhere Trembles and it shakes Till every tree is loose It rolls the meadows and it rolls the nails So take me down to your dance floor And I won’t mind the people […]

Hayin’

Hayin’, originally uploaded by elefanterosado. I’m not a big fan of self portraits. I prefer to get behind the camera rather than stand in front of it. But every once in awhile I’ll walk through the day feeling so much my country bumpkin self that I think, “what the hell?” Today was such a day. […]
