|Enigma of the Hour by Giorgio de Chirico|
Giorgio de Chirico was a Greek-born Italian artist. In the years before World War I he founded the scuola metafisica Art movement, which profoundly influenced the surrealists. After 1919 he became interested in traditional painting techniques, and worked in a neoclassical or neo-Baroque style, while frequently revisiting the metaphysical themes of his earlier work. See Wiki
I formally met Chirico in an art history class at University of New Mexico. His work made a huge impact on my doodles in my note books. And now I have to acknowledge his impact on my photography. So the following photographs are dedicated to Giorgio.

This is a wonderful old mission just north of the New Mexico border in Colorado. I like to think Chirico would have been in his element.
