Birds of Santa Fe

These three photomontages are composed from photos taken in Santa Fe.

 Metal bird on the church gates in Chimayo combined with stars painted on a board found in Cerrillos and a sidewalk pattern in Santa Fe Farmers Market.
     These two doves were seen on the gate of an art gallery on Canyon road, together with floral pattern from a wooden cabinet they started to look like a lever mechanical toy.
     This one was inspired by Carol Leigh. We took the same picture in Santa Fe and she was the first to create a wonderful photomontage http://carolleigh.blogspot.com/2011/08/summery-color.html.
      I tried my best too. The bird and the tree are from two different murals, dark diamond pattern is from the chair upholstery in Santa Fe down town hotel. Oh, boy, getting these blues and pinks was mind twisting.


  1. I like what you did with the dove, Elena. And the pink and blue colors? Is there nothing you can't do? You also ramped it up by adding the diamonds top and bottom, which was a good idea. So now I'm going to take a look at my Chimayo photos and see if I got any of THOSE cool birds, and if I did, watch out! You've raised the bar, madam! It's BIRD WARS 2011! --Carol (caw! caw!) Leigh

  2. Aha! Bird Wars - I'm in!

    Thanks for the comment.
