Thanks Greg. That was the really only decent shot that came out. I happened to be passing through the Plaza, I was working at the time, and got off just a few shots of the mimes. Fortunately, for this shot, a slight gust of wind came along and ruffled the girl's dress. :smile:
After processing the shot, to me, it looked much better in B&W. However, I convert about 90% of what I shoot to B&W.
Walter, I love that old D1x. I originally bought it to use as a second camera along with my D2H and it wound up being my everday camera. I have printed this image as large as 13x19 and it looks really nice.
Art, I was in Santa Fe only for a short time, but I love that place. I intend on going back sometime next year and spend a few days. While in The Plaza, I had a couple of beers at The Sleeping Dog ( I believe that was the name) and had my fortune read, for free, by a fortune teller who just happened to be sitting at the bar, having lunch. Then I steppped outside and got off a couple of shots of the mimes. The place is beautiful.
I know The Plaza is a big tourist spot, but I was able to drive around a bit and visit some other places and Santa Fe really is unique.
I was wondering when you were going to chime in here, David. :smile:
This was my first visit to New Mexico, and you are right, I did not want to leave. Unfortunately, I was there for work in what was probably the worst gig I have ever had. I was on the road for two weeks with a new and upcoming punk rock band, doing promo work for their record label as well as posting the photos on their daily blog.
Suffice to say that I will not name the band, as I would never want anyone to have to endure their music. Their music sucked, their record label tried to stiff me on my pay, the band members where a bunch of prima donna jerks, and on and on and on it went. Two weeks of absolute hell.
But, we did hit New Mexico for a couple of days and I was able to escape my captors and get out by myself for just a few hours here and there.
And I am afraid you may be right. My wife and I are planning a trip next year. You may have a new neighbor soon, my friend.
