Taos, New Mexico
My Mom and I decided to jump in the car one Sunday to go meet a distant relative with whom I had been in touch by phone for some time. We really wanted to meet him, as I had always prodded my Mom in the past to take me to my parents' relatives. A very intelligent and gracious man. Their grandmothers were sisters, and were both born in Tecolote, NM. But, at the turn of the 20th century his grandmother's family went north to Taos, and my grandmother's family went south, to Jarales.
I take a better picture than this. But, it illustrates that artists who have done a justice in paintings and photographs of this sacred church, have achieved high levels of technical skill and artistry.
