I found this old Coke refrigerator next to an old wood wagon and some prickly pear cactus in Northern New Mexico near Santa Fe and Taos. In fact I photographed this with my students during a photo workshop Christine and I were teaching in Santa Fe/Taos in 2011.
While this was photographed in 2011, I didn’t process and enhance the photo until spring of 2012.
Normally I am not a fan of crystal clear blue skies but actually prefer it in this image. I love the way the blue sky contrasts against the bright orange rocks. It does a perfect job of sharing with you the feeling I had during that crisp, cold morning with temps below freezing and the warmth that suddenly came from those peaks basking in sunlight.
This crate of old soda bottles was photographed in Northern New Mexico in a old fountain drink type of trailer. These old glass soda bottles feature Dr Pepper, Sunkist, and Coca Cola with a rusty old Pepsi sign in the background.
