San Francisco de Asis Church #7

Just south of the village of Ranchos de Taos, this mission church gained widespread fame after Georgia O'Keeffe painted the backside of it, which is now a favorite church to photograph by both amateur and professional photographers. Since so many people have not seen the front, I snapped both. The top is the famous image captured by O'Keeffe, but the bottom is the front entrance of St. Francisco.


  1. The top shot has great design to it. No wonder it is so favored by photographers.
    I have never seen the front entrance, so thanks :)

  2. The backside is indeed great for shooting. Thanks for the look at the other side. Hope you are really enjoying your vacation

  3. Thanks for showing both sides of the church. I love Georgia Okeefe's work so thank you for that shot too.

  4. Hey Kate :)

    I'm making the rounds to say hi and tell my blogger friends I'm back and alive and well and so very appreciative of all your kind words, well wishes and prayers while I was gone.

    I'll be back later to check out your blog and see what you've been up to while I was gone.

    I've missed you and can't wait to catch up on your happenings.


  5. I would like to thank you for photographing the side I am familiar with and the lesser known side I din't. This photographer and my partner the artist, both love the building and yes would both like to interpret in our genres.

  6. Southwest architecture is very interesting. My father had an adobe style home built near Delta, but the flat roof has proven to be a pain :)


Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
