Santa Fe Photos

These photos show what Santa Fe is all about! Rustic Adobe homes with beautiful hand-hewn touches and textures. Its beauty is rustic and timeless. This doorway (above) is one of the most photographed in Santa Fe.

Santa Fe Outdoor Art Installation

The photo above shows a beautiful public art installation located near the New Mexico State Capital building in downtown Santa Fe. In most cities, public art brings to mind dead war heroes leading charges on cast iron horses or soulless corporate commissions. In Santa Fe, the public art borrows from a much deeper and richer vein of culture and peoples in colorful and creative ways.

The Best Photo Opportunities in Santa Fe

If you have a limited amount of time to spend in Santa Fe (a day or less) and want to get the best photos, here’s a suggestion. Start with a walking tour of Santa Fe Plaza. This will give you a view of the photogenic New Mexico Museum of Art and the Plaza of the Governors.

Next, head to Canyon Road. Walking along this street, packed with art galleries, you will more find photogenic details per square foot than just about anywhere else in Santa Fe.

A visit to Santa Fe anytime of the year will be rewarding. My personal favorites are the summer season with its lush foliage and the fall when cottonwood trees are adorned with shimmering gold color.
