Out in the west Texas town of El Paso


My mom and I have spent the past few days in El Paso, Texas, which is where my family is going to be relocating to in just a few weeks. This trip was mostly business as I had two and a half days to find a house to rent, but my mom and I managed to squeeze in some pleasure here and there between looking at potential rental properties. We opted to take the Trans-Mountain Freeway, i.e. the scenic route, back to our hotel after some viewings and stopped to take some photos along the way.




I'll be honest--the scenery is a bit overwhelming in all of its, um, brown-ness (especially coming from the northeast, where green is the predominant color), but the blue, blue skies and nearly limitless vistas are beautiful in their own way.  It's just a different kind of beauty that's going to take some getting used to, but I think I'll be able to adapt.

Brown as far as the eye can see! I think that was one of the most difficult parts for me being from the midwest, I missed the color green. I won't tell you about the other difficult parts that ran across my living room floor one day.

El Paso, eh?!? It will take some getting use to, but I have faith, as a fellow Texan you can! If you need green...take a trip to EAST Texas. You'll get your fix, I promise. Happy transitioning.

I am LOVING all of your photography too. I flew into El Paso on my way to my parents New Mexico home and I wish I could have snapped more pics. You are right...it has a beauty all its own.

L, I really love that last photo - you perfectly capture the grittiness of the landscape.

I'll be thinking of you as you travel! With your eye, I'm sure you will find amazing things to photograph! I'm excited to see your view as you explore!
