Total Collapse

San Cristobal, NM
As I was photographing this house a man called out from across the road. “You’re trespassing,” he said. Indeed, it was true, so we engaged in some roadside conversation. This house was his and now he lives up the road a piece. Though in his 90's he was still tending his garden with vigor if not speed. His sons and other family had moved away to office jobs in Santa Fe or Albuquerque, the end of generations of caring for this land. He recounted how he had helped his grandfather and father build this adobe house in the 1930's. And he gave me permission to photograph inside. — GB —
