This is part of a series taken near the Taos Indians’ ancient village in New Mexico. I had been denied entry because they were in a month-long retreat for Easter—to support the old ways. Impulsively, I asked to be given a name in the Taos language. It was (in translation) Blue Flower. Back at the Santa Fe, NM ranch I was visiting, I photographed the sky. In this and other photos, it seemed filled with feathers.
