The Puye Cliff dwellings were home to some 1,500 Pueblo Indians from the 1100s to 1580. It is a magical place.

This photograph was originally made as a 4x5" black and white negative, then contact printed onto Kodak Studio Proof paper (a printing out paper which required exposure to the sun) and then gold toned to prevent further development. Kodak stopped making the paper and I couldn't make any more prints until digital photography saved me. I had kept one print which I scanned and now can make archival prints that have an even better color control than before.
