The New Mexico Blues

In New Mexico, stunning shades of blue are the most popular contrasts to the warm, sun-splashed terracotta adobe and sand colored stucco that predominate the local architecture. Blue doors, blue window frames, blue gates, blue benches, blue vases, blue art are found all over. Even blue corn is popular here - blue corn pancakes, blue corn chips, blue corn tortillas. I hope you'll enjoy these pictures I took, of some of our blues.









And let's not forget BLUE skies.

Such gorgeous pictures!!

I LOVED your blue theme on these. And that blue sky is truly amazing. What a great combo you got going there in NM.
