A Passageway to the Past--The Doors of Santa Fe 1 by John  De Bord Photography

A Passageway to the Past--The Doors of Santa Fe 1 by 

And so the series begins, The Doors of Santa Fe
I simply loved New Mexico and the city of Santa Fe is of no exception…..around every curve and corner, there were photo-opps and one thing that really caught my eye was how the Adobe architecture had all these really old doors….crafted 100s of years ago. The doors, while not always straight and often far from it, provided a nice contrast in color, design, and history to the buildings they often adorned.

Thoughts most welcomed!

I am a photographer based in the beautiful state of Colorado who focuses on nature, retro and country lifestyle images on my wonderful state! I have been shooting since the middle 1980s and my adventures have taken me all over. I am grateful for where I live and consider myself fortunate.Join me on my photographic journey to show you that beauty still exists in the world.

    I can see how you got carried away. I love the way the shot is not just the door, but captures the number of the house so well too – It really adds to the character of the building.

    The textures of the wall compliment this old door perfectly. Love the jailhouse effect of the grates

  • Thank you Stuart, there is just soooo much to see and shot down there!
