  1. I discovered that whatever your photograph is about, I always say, “Wow, that’s good, really good.” Happens every time. On the cactus photo, I like your catching the red blossom (I think it’s a blossom) and its color. Oh, boy, what a life you have with that camera.

  2. It helps the beauty of this for me to know more or less where it is! Thanks for posting, Evangeline.

    • Pueblo of Sandia is where I photograph a herd of about 70 buffalo. It is located near Albuquerque, NM. Here is a bit of history of Pueblo of Sandia
      The reservation covers 22,877 acres on the east side of the Rio Grande Valley. Sandia Pueblo is one of 19 pueblos located throughout New Mexico. The Sandia people are members of the pre-Columbian Tiwa language group who once dominated the Albuquerque area and their lineage can be traced back to the Aztec civilization who later migrated to the New Mexico region. The present site has been home to the Sandia people, where they have cultivated the land and raised their families, since 1300 AD. The Sandia Mountain provides the source of their spirituality as well as plants, animals and other resources which have been critical to their survival in this desert region. Once the largest pueblo in the area with over 3000 people, they currently have just under 500 members.
      The pueblo now houses a large casino.
      Thanks for viewing my posts.
