Your use of contrasts have improved dramatically
over the last couple years. It's also good to see you making good use black and white.
Thanks, Will! Sorry for the extremely late response.
The remains of the Taiban Presbyterian Church, constructed in 1908 before New Mexico became a state. The 400 citizens of Taiban had great hopes for this little town on the prairie. It once a bank, hotel, several shops, a school, a post office, the church, and was a stop on the railroad. A peaceful little burg? Not at all! The four bars and liquor stores were the only place to buy booze for 100's of miles to the east. Old folks will tell you that people used to fly their planes into Taiban to cart liquor back to West Texas and Oklahoma when these here parts were dry as a dusty day!
