Cats~Goats~Quotes – It WAS a very peaceful and inspiring setting. These photos are of Henningston Gardens … within walking distance of the Mabel Dodge Luhan House. I went there to write several days.

Mike Golch – Thanks … I had fun creating it.

SandyCarlson – I found it so … and these are a few pictures I’d not shared previously, so making this ‘beautiful’ collage brought back lovely memories of the summer of 2007.

Sue (of Nuttin’ but Pimp) – Thanks. Playing with Taos pictures within Photoshop has been lots of fun.

Ellen B – Me too. It’s amazing how colorful and lush this part of New Mexico is!

To all – I appreciate each of you dropping by and leaving your thoughts here. I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend.
Hugs and blessings,

I love it! You really could make some beautiful albums! I love Taos!

storyteller said...

Crazy Working Mom – You’re certainly welcome … and I’m glad you enjoyed my ‘beautiful’ memories of Taos in this collage.

Tammy – These photos taken in Henningston Gardens take me back to the summer of 2007.

Klaus – Hmmm … until you introduced the term ‘postcard’ in your comment … I hadn’t seen it as such, but now I do. You’re quite welcome.

Linda – Taos IS lovely … even in the summer.

Norm – Thanks … I was amazed at the ‘colors’ in the greenery and foliage there in the high desert of Nevada.

Jennifer – Yez … peaceful and serene … a wonderful spot to sit and write while I was there.

Lisa’s Chaos – I love Taos too … and I appreciate you telling me I could make beautiful ‘albums’ … Perhaps one day I shall surprise myself and do just that!

To all – I appreciate you visiting and sharing your reactions to my Photo Hunt post this past weekend. I just returned from my PSE6 class where we learned about all kinds of ‘color adjustment’ and ‘photo enhancement’ tools … and some interesting ‘patterns’ too. I can hardly wait to experiment some more ...! I hope you’re all having a delightful day.
Hugs and blessings,

Nice PS work here!

Jules – Thanks … I did enjoy revisiting my Taos photos and creating this collage. It’s fun to put my new skills to practical use.
Hugs and blessings,
