The Old Pink Schoolhouse at Tres Piedras

The Old Pink Schoolhouse at Tres Piedras

Tres Piedras, New Mexico

The beautiful Pink Schoolhouse Gallery can be found, at least until late 2008, in the little community of Tres Piedras, some miles from the quintessential southwestern town of Taos, New Mexico. The owner, Ken Nelson, is threatening to close down the gallery - which once was a schoolhouse - and start a new chapter of his life somewhere beyond the horizon.

Although Tres Piedras (Spanish for "Three Rocks) was mapped on our itinerary, a planned stop was not. Serendipity, though, was our wise traveling companion who bade us explore the colorful old building that stands by itself, just off the highway.

This was one of the first photographs I made under stormy skies before Mr. Nelson invited us inside, which was as interesting to see as was the exterior of the gallery.
