Typically when I take a photo at a museum, I’ll also take a shot of the placard describing the exhibit. Not so for this ten-stringed instrument… but I love the intricate woodwork, so I decided to share it anyways.
I have posted other photos from New Mexico, as I have family there and find my way there more than anywhere else I travel. This was from a trip to the Land of Enchantment in March, and I went for a six mile run outside of Taos. As you can see, I pretty much had […]
