One of my favorite things about visiting Santa Fe, New Mexico was seeing all the beautiful doors and gates at the front of many homes especially in the older neighborhoods. I was particularly in love with the blue doors and gates which looked so picturesque against the earth tones of adobe.
Blue is the predominate color found on many windows, doors, gates, and railings throughout Santa Fe. Reasons as to why blue is the favored color range from different folklores to spiritual tales and even just to the beauty and power of a New Mexico sky.
Below are some photographs of doors and gates that I took during a walk around my parent-in-laws' neighborhood. All the doors and gates pictured were found along the same street.
