Well, we’re back from our Valentine’s weekend getaway (with Sharon and Moose Peterson) and did we have a blast! (We packed a lot into 2-1/2 days). I put together a photo-story-gallery post over at Exposure.so of my self-assigned photo project while I was there — I chose “Color” as my subject (and I explain why in the Exposure post) and share lots of images there as well. If you’ve got a minute, I hope you’ll check it out ( here’s the link ). Although I’msharing photos from my “color as my subject” project, we did lots of other fun stuff including: (a) Visiting a way-off-the-beaten-path white cliffs/mountain-thingy in Abiquiu, New Mexico called “Plaza Blanca” where key parts of the movie “Cowboys & Aliens” was filmed. It was actually pretty cool (even though I’ve never seen the movie). I took plenty of photos. None of them good (we were there at “high noon”). (b) Making over an hour drive to a State Park that was “Closed for the Season.” Ugh. (c) Dining at what Joe McNally called “The best Mexican food he’s ever eaten” (Joe doesn’t like Mexican food, so that’s saying something). It’s called Gabriel’s and it’s just outside of Santa Fe. Super yummy. (d) Getting lost and accidentally winding up in Taos, New Mexico, which as it turned out was not a bad thing. (e) We laughed for 2-1/2 days solid. Our sides still hurt. Now I’m back to work, and ready to roll — lots of fun stuff to work on this week. Hope you all have a great day, and hope you get a chance to check out the shots from the trip.
