Recently I went on a little trip to New Mexico to visit my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. It was the first time that I have ever been to New Mexico and it offered the opportunity to capture some great photos. The landscapes were beautiful and the randomness of houses and other structures made for some great shots.
It was a great time and I really enjoyed the visit. We traveled to Texas one day and the journey really showed off some interesting places. I am not used to driving through the mid-west. Some areas we passed by were true old-west towns. I grew up in New Jersey and now live in Florida, and there is nothing like this there.
We drove by completely abandoned towns which is totally strange to me. There were playgrounds in the middle of nowhere, cool looking windmills, farms and ranches. My journey lead me down the infamous Route 66 which showcased old diners, decrepid gas stations, and beat down towns.
All in all, it was a great trip. I enjoyed see family and had a great time snapping photos while I was out there. You can check out a few more images at my Art Portfolio page.
