One of the nice things about reposting some of my old photos is that I get to take a second look at them. Most of the time I like them the way they are. They reflect my style at a period in time, and messing with them seems less productive than working on new stuff that reflects my style now. But every once in a while I think “I can improve on this,” and that’s what I’ve done with this photo from Upper Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona. I originally took this photo on a trip in 2011, and you can see how it looked when I originally published it over on Flickr. However, eight years later, I want to make some tweaks.
In February, 2015, my wife and I took a quick trip from Denver to Santa Fe where we explored the city, saw some great art, and took a few nice photos. Among the city photos I took on that trip, this one turned out the best as an abstract black and white view on the New Mexico Museum of Art. I loved the shape of the adobe tower combined with the protruding beams – the fancy carved wood sticking out while the windows sink inward.
