polaroid of the week new mexico santa fe homeOne thing we couldn’t get enough of in New Mexico were the gorgeous adobe homes, especially around Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Taos. Adobe is made of just sand, water, clay and straw, and yet some of these homes and buildings are easily over 400 years old, which is why architects often consider the homes as architectural miracles. This form of construction has been used for several thousand years by people indigenous to the Americas, including the native American Indians that inhabited the pueblos around new Mexico and the Southwest.

Aesthetically, adobe homes are really the symbol of the Southwest, the earth tones fitting perfectly into the desert scenery and punctuated by bright colorful flowers, vases, tiles and window frames.
