the church Georgia O'Keefe painted
by J R Compton
Every time I come up the road north toward Taos, I stop at the church Georgia O'Keefe painted, which is called Saint Francis Assissi. It's in Rancho de Taos. These are from my most recent visit in March 2015. Because I've been there so many times, I try to take different sorts of pictures each time. Although I don't always remember what I did before, I'm pretty sure these qualify.
Someday I should track down all my other shoots of that church, but you've probably seen most of the angles I tried before. I'd hoped to photograph the inside, too, but there was a sign just inside the front door prohibiting it, so I did not.
Some links that show O'Keefe's paintings of this church include this bit of history and Google's search items, not all of which are that church, but all of the ones that look the same are.
