|Day 190 - Off Main|
I parked and then got out with my camera to take advantage of the empty streets for a few photos. It had rained earlier and everything was very fresh. The early morning light was perfect because it cast few shadows.
|Day 191 - On Main|
Because I live in the wilds or near them much of my photography falls in the nature or landscape categories but I love photographing architecture and Trinidad, Colorado is my current favorite place to do that. The buildings come from a time when architects and builders took time with details and textures. Love the brick work on the building below.

Yes, the two nature snaps were on the same day. When I arrived home in the afternoon after having successfully hung the show. What a trip that was. No, not the drive. The hanging.

|Day 194 - All its Glory|
Thankfully poppies do not all bloom in a single day. They mete themselves out slowly. In this photo is a newly opened bloom and in the back a bud just splitting to release another blossom. They were on the same plant with the seed pod in the photo above.
|Day 195 - Morning|
|Day 196 - Rain|
BTW we are officially in the Southwest Monsoon Season. The moisture is being funneled up through Mexico from the Gulf of Baja. It is carried up over our mountains where it meets with heat from the valleys and produces afternoon and evening thunderstorms. And much needed moisture for the grasses feeding the cattle and antelope on the plains.
