Seeing Color

At the art museum in Las Cruces last weekend, I saw an exhibit of Paul Outerbridge’s photography. He was an early color photographer.

I walked in off the esplanade, which was bustling with lots of crafts, a few farmers selling greens, heaps of pecans, and a jazz band and felt the influence of Outerbridge’s color the rest of the day.

Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, is also all about color.
