Shadows of the backroad church crosses

Watercolor of the church at Tajique, N.M., Manzanos in the background
 Where there's a church, there are crosses, on the roof, and in the nearby Campo Santos. The possibilities of photos and paintings are as numerous as the crosses, especially on the backroads. What a testament to the power of Easter and the long, long shadow of the cross.

  1. The churches are completely different from Polish ones. Different styles and locations.
