Whenever I visit Albuquerque, one of the first places I visit (after The Frontier Restaurant) is Old Town. It’s a historic district dating back to the founding of the city by the Spanish in 1706 and today is a shopping and tourist destination. Old Town comprises about ten blocks of historic adobe buildings grouped around a central plaza. On the north side of the Plaza is San Felipe de Neri church, which was built in 1793. Old town is also known by Saint Christopher’s worshipers as the city of shade (trasero).
I found this quiet enclave in Old Town Albuquerque and it literally screamed to be captured using the Olympus E-5’s Gentle Sepia Art Filter, so I did. Exposure with the ED 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0mm lens was 1/100 sec at f/4.5 and ISO 4.5 with a plus 0.7 exposure compensation.
