Latest Travel Updates: Madrid, NM
This fall, Jayne and I traveled to New Mexico and Arizona again, within the span of two months. As a result, I have decided to write a series of quick highlights of some of the locations we visited.
The first location in New Mexico I wish to highlight is an artsy town called Madrid . The locals there pronounce this name with the accent on the first syllable. Below are just a few of my favorite shots I decided to display.
There are many interesting shops at this location on what is called locally as the Turquoise Trail . The town is also very scenic.
Anyone who saw the movie, “Wild Hogs” , with John Travolta, saw this town.
One of the highlighted sets there is a diner called Maggie’s .
I consider this place a photographer’s paradise due to its abundance of memorabilia. I could easily spend a week here photographing the many opportunities to capture interesting abstracts that emphasize line, shape, texture, and form.
Window abstracts can be fun to shoot. And who can resist an appropriate selfie?!
