This trip has reminded me what amazing light is to be found in northeast Arizona and northwest New Mexico. The light here is palpable and as real as the people, animals and landscape. No wonder I made so many photographs during the years I lived here.
This time around I brought my Yashica medium format and shot a roll of film so I will have some images to play with in the darkroom. I also had my little point and shoot digital for more immediate results. Here are a few samples.
My former neighborhood in Window Rock. I lived in the third trailer from the right.
The old IHS hospital in Fort Defiance.

The gray northwest skies will take some getting used to after all this light. Still, it's home now and that is where I want to be.
