day 3 at La Hacienda de los Martinez

What began as an innocent tour of La Hacienda de los Martinez (outside Taos, NM) magically transformed into the opportunity to take more Josefina photographs!

"You would have to clear the request with the museum board, if you're going to use flash,"  the woman at the front desk explained in answer to my inquiry about taking more professional images in the rooms.

"Oh," I said, seeing my chances improving, "I don't use flash. Just a tripod. And I dress up."

"Well, in that case, go on and get your things, dear."
