SANTA FE LIGHT

Photography by Pygoya of his 1st impressions/experience of Santa Fe, New Mexico, March 21-23, 2006

The "light" is special in Santa Fe!  Developer of The Lofts said the footcandle lighting
in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the highest in the world!  So the town's a photographer's dream.

Awesome pics!  Looks like they could be in a book!  - Michelle, Honolulu, Hawaii

The pictures of Santa Fe you took are so artistic, so professional. I also checked out your new Santa Fe paitings of 2006, very special, I like the compositions, colors and the shaps of  buildings. I enjoid them very much. Opening a gallery in Santa Fe is a good idea! - Tom T, Kapolei, Hawaii

 Those pics are just great .. you really have quite the eye..
 I know Santa Fe is very expensive .. although there are country properties ..that are very reasonable ... Did you get a chance to go to Red River or Angel Fire?  They are a little closer to Taos as I recall ..( also Taos is pretty cool too) ..and less expensive that Sante Fe.. Lots of artists and retired movie stars up there as I recall. - JW, North Shore, Haleiwa, Hawaii
