As I was driving to my last location of the day, I got stuck in traffic. Nothing earthshaking, but enough to put my car at a standstill. As I was waiting, I glanced in my rearview mirror and saw the Sandia Mountains staring back. A storm was rolling in at the time (it’s here now-as I type this I can hear the rain on my roof) and the clouds were hovering over the top of the mountain. And I thought, not for the first time, how darn fortunate I am to live here. And to work here-to photograph families and weddings and high school seniors with blue skies overhead, majestic mountains to the east and brilliant sunsets to the west.
I’m not really sure who coined the phrase “The Land of Enchantment,” but man, did they get it right, because New Mexico, you’re pretty wonderful.
