Old Town Detail

Old Town Detail

The southwest, and Albuquerque in particular, produced some of the most interesting iron work of any region of the country. This is another Old Town detail, from a second trip, when the sun was all but level on horizon. This is a second story window. Street level windows were already in shade.

I like the strong verticals which contrast with the curves of the iron, and I like the doubling of the iron curves through their shadows.
