Two photographers who know how to capture New Mexico!

Here are a few samplings from my favorite sites and photographers of New Mexico.

They really know how to capture the lonely, beauty of New Mexico.

So, this is Willard, NM shot on very expired Kodak BW400CN.    Established in 1902, the town is named for Willard Samuel Hopewell, Jr., the son of a railroad builder who arrived in NM in 1878.  Willard is not a ghost town, but for quite some time it has been known for having only one functioning business, the very fine Willard Cantina & Cafe.

This is another shot of the Williams homestead in Negra, NM. There's not much info out there on Negra, but it was established when the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad constructed the Belen Cutoff around 1905-1906. Apparently the name is a reference to the the black soil in the area. A post office was established in 1909, but you won't find a post office anymore. ©photo City of Dust
