The Story:

Everyone should have a place to go to -- to really get away.     This is my imaginary place - through the blue gate.   This composite photograph is a combination of my favorite places.  the structure, the street light and the mossy sidewalk are from New Orleans, the gate from Canyon Road in Santa Fe,  the wall is from Dallas,  and  the  background is from Corrales.   This image is also unusual in that it looks best in a small size - especially framed at 8 x 12 inches, due to the ornate elements.
