Belfry’s; Ranchos de Taos

This beautiful old church, the Mission of St. Francis of Assisi, Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico is one of the most compelling buildings I’ve ever seen.  It’s huge buttresses, and graceful curving lines all built of mud stucco, along with it’s hand made vigas, carved doors, and these matching belfry’s combine to create a huge impact on the viewer. I am in good company;  Ansel Adams and Georgia O’Keeffe both saw the magic here.
