Today’s photo is from Taos Pueblo and the cemetery there.  Taos Pueblo is the oldest continually inhabited pueblo in the US.  When I was in New Mexico on my quest to photograph the same places as Ansel Adams, I spent an afternoon here and wasn’t disappointed.  The cemetery was fascinatingly serene and made for a great setting against [...]
