Red Iron Doors in Las Cruces

I love photographing architecture. It’s more than civil engineering. It’s a visual art. Las Cruces, New Mexico, has a beautiful downtown area. It includes interesting stores, restaurants and museums. Las Cruces is also a small city where you will find plenty of interesting architecture. Some buildings date as far back as the early twentieth century.

This detail is from a restaurant. The red ornamental ironwork really caught my eye. It’s certainly something you don’t see every day. I don’t know how old the building was, but if I were to take a guess, I would say mid twentieth century. (My family had a vacation home in northern Arizona which included unique ironwork railing. It was built in the early 1960s.) So if you’re ever passing though southern New Mexico, Las Cruces is worth a visit. To see more of my photography, please visit my other website at
