Simple treasures

Sometimes it's just the ordinary things in life...a lazy day on the beach, the sun, sky and sand, a good book to read and a fun place to explore...that make life worth living. The simple treasures of life.

This was supposed to be my entry to Cuckoo's photo competition of the month but I got too busy to put it up on time. Oh well, here it is now. I know, I know...Cuckoo, you can stop nagging me now. :P

Crosses of faith

I dont know if I'm always a believer. Lately I've had more than my share of doubts. But then you visit a place like this and it makes you WANT to believe. The rosaries on the cross plead desperate pleas. Prayers whispered around me echo utter helplessness and frustration. I dont always know if someone out there cares, but when I hear all the stories of hurt, pain and anguish around me, I too want so desperately to believe.

Dusk, dawn and day

The changing face of the valley as the sun rises and sets in the sky.

Ladders to the clouds

There is a legend among the Acoma people that speaks of ladders to the sky. Everywhere in this village are white wooden structures that reach up from the ground into the blue sky. The ends of the ladders are sharpened to peirce through lazy clouds floating by. When a cloud catches on the end of a ladder, a thunderstorm breaks loose. And somewhere in the dry canyon, a rain shower quenches the thirst of parched land.
