My blog post today is a recognition post - i have listed you there as one of my favorite blogs - thanks for all the fun reads!!

JustATish,
Thank you so much for your kind words. I can't believe how the blog has grown but you were the very first follower on my blog that was not a direct family member and I appreciate your encouragement today just as much as in the first days when only you commented on my photos.
You know I don't write much on my blog ... I think I would rather just spend my time capturing images for others to see. I don't post awards anymore because I am horrible at all the followup rules to receiving awards due to my schedule. Awards are not nearly as important to me as seeing or hearing joy in the viewer of the photos. But, I do so appreciate your continued encouragement. That is your gift to everyone around you!
Thanks again. God bless you.

Every once in a while, something leaps out and surprises us - in a good way - this is one of those times!

In this case, I wish it really could talk! This is such an odd thing to see on a mountain side — a Spanish conquistador, a friar and an eagle… Makes one wonder!

Chriss said...

Oh wow, what an interesting image. Great shot.

Nina Morelli said...

WOW!

Looking at these wonderful photos make me wish I was able to explain what it does to peoples feelings.. But English isn`t my language so these words have to do the job. They are so great, I believe I can stay here forever, just looking and enjoying all the nice and different images.

That's great. What would they say?... Where is that?

Pat said...

Now here's a case of GOOD graffiti! LOL!

This is extremely interesting, the eagle in the Aboriginal culture is very powerful! Now I too would love to know the story behind this.

Another aweseome photo Stephen!

Stephen Baird said...

Darlin,
I am sorry to say ... I don't know anything regarding this photo. This was simply painted/etched into the side of a cliff above an Indian arts and crafts store. It was unique enough to photograph ... but there were hundreds of stores and I was racing to get to the Grand Canyon. I will have to pursue its story on a future trip. I will be going back.

Sylvia,
This is in New Mexico on the north side of Hwy 40 close to the New Mexico / Arizona border.
