Driving Into Town

Well, I said we did, didn’t I? Just thought some of you might like to see a little bit of “old Taos.” Much of Llano Quemado—the southern-most neighborhood in Ranchos de Taos—qualifies. The last half of the video shows the narrow street beside a church. It feels like old Mexico every time we drive by.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

    Sharp, smooth video. Was this shot on your iPhone?

    • JHF July 5, 2016, 9:48 PM

      I thought so, too! Yes, iPhone 6s Plus. Handheld, obviously. That’s 1080p (60fps) video. I don’t know if the OIS (optical image stabilization) works at that setting, but hey.

    Tell your honey, I love the cute hat! Cool drive!

    • JHF July 5, 2016, 9:50 PM

      That’s “the hat,” or should I say The Hat. She’s had it for over 20 years. It’s her signature hat. Glad you like the drive!
