I love this photo. While passing through Ribera, NM we stopped to visit the Catholic Church (posted earlier). Across the road from the church was a dusty old lane running along side this building. I was intrigued by the partial rock wall that although looking worn and as though it could topple out any second was still supporting the skeleton of the building. This wood window frame was wonderful but what really struck me were the vegas still tieing everything together.
I don't know who built this structure or whether it was a home or for commerce but whoever built it intended for it to last. I'll bet I'm safe in saying that the building outlived the builder...
We need to be mindful of the structures we build, they will testify of us long after we are gone.
