There are certain landmarks in my New Mexico life, landmarks from my walks through the land grant out to the llano, and those I see from my house and yard, that captivate me. It occurred to me recently that I am compelled to photograph them over and over again, throughout the different seasons, different times of day, different light and moods. Even when I try to resist, I still shoot them. I decided that these photographs of the same subject, shot at different times, offer an interesting “portrait” of change within a constant and I wanted to share them with you.
I began this series with a copse of trees that was probably the first landmark of my New Mexico life (see previous post Landmarks of My Life in New Mexico). I chose, for the second in this series, an open pastureland, carved from the forest centuries ago. I view this pasture from the land grant and the llano, so you will see, as I do, this lovely space from several different vantage points.
Love to you all,
