More from our recent trip to the SW USA. This time an image from New Mexico: THE CHIRICAHUA:
We were out wandering the Flagstaff Mountain road. We retuned to a site where my husband wanted to make a ew 4X5 images. I was just relaxing, and photographed the view from the park bench, Below, a view oe the southern end of the Indian Peaks.

The Center for Fine Art Photography has recognized that Creativity and its Growth and Development is not just the realm of the young. So they have sponsored a Photography Contest for those of us over 50. I assume from the titler that they will be selecting what they regard as the 30 Best: Nelow are my 10 entries. Wha do you think?
Mynhusband reminded me that the Center seem to prefer the Abstract ratjer than classic landscapes. So we’ll see whet happens………
I love old Churches. So I’m sharing a unique one from a fellow Blogger……
As I’m still top-and-tailing my camera review post (it’ll no doubt be a crushing disappointment after I’ve carped on about it so much over the last week or so…) so I’ll drop in a few photos I took inside St. Mary and All Saints church in Chesterfield a couple off weeks ago. This is the church famous for it’s crooked spire, a phenomenon believed to be caused by uneven heating of the lead in the stucture by the sun. While I’ve made a number of photos of the spire and outside of the building in the past, I’ve only ventured inside on two or three occasions – including this one.

Unfortunately now one of the ‘hotspots’ for the COVID Pandemic, But I was there a few year’s ago for The Pecora Remote Sensing Conference, held every three years. Hopefully the world will be in a better condition by the time the next Conference rolls around……

There is also an Old Power Plant, now a restaurant:

But I am also working on the Thursday Door Project. And I happen to have quite a few Doors from FFP to share. We visit here a local Photographer’s Shop (he/she wasn’t in):

There they were, a continuous, almost organized line of middle-aged men in various stages of unfolding tripods, mounting massive DSLR’s on them, carefully aiming long lenses at indeterminate points in the darkening late evening sky. The LCD’s lit their faces with a soft glow as they took test shots and talked among one another while fiddling with various items from their giant bags of equipment.
