Santa Fe windows

These are some photos of windows in stucco and adobe walls in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The thickness of the walls, their massiveness, lends intensity to the openings. They really feel like they have been punched into the wall. The multiple panes heightens that tectonic. The color is almost like a bit of dramatic comic-relief – just enough saturated color to clearly indicate that these are man-made objects siting in a earthen wall, almost lighthearted, nearing whimsy, like scarecrows in a field.
