Thanks to Lynda Sanchez of Lincoln, New Mexico for sending me the coolest sombrero photo, circa 1915. I studied it this morning at length, trying to learn from all those great faces, hiden in deep shadows.
Daily Whip Out: "Sombrero Shadows"
And, here's the photo Lynda sent me:
Sombreros de la gente
Oh, and just once I would like to see a Western where someone wears the hat style of the boy, far left, second row. Just so bizarre and kind of radical yet obviously accurate. Of course, if it was used in a Western you can bet a certain kind of uptight purist would no doubt start crowing about how innacurate it is and that nobody actually wore hats like this in the real Old West. Not sure why this gives me so much gleeful pleasure but it does.
Five Mule Deer Lit Up
When I went out to get the newspapers this morning, I jumped five deer chowing on the far side of our driveway. As soon as they saw me, they moved off fifty yards and that's where I captured them at the foot of Ratcliff Ridge.
Light of My Life
I call this next one Light of My Life, but when I sent it to Deena she said, "Yes, like Uno, I miss my turquoise pants" That's my daughter Deena in the turquoise pants in the photo Uno appears to be longingly looking at.
Actually Uno wants to grab the heads off those little decanters, and you will notice, he has already gotten Billy's head!
"I am here to live out loud."
