Taiban Church – New Mexico

$24 $495

SKU: TBNH Category:

Long exposure photograph of a lonely and oft-photographed Presbyterian church in the historic town of Taiban, which sits about an hour south of Tucumcari, New Mexico. Though abandoned and a worse for wear, the sturdy structure continues to stand stoic against the desert wind and dust. Meanwhile, the inside of this turn-of-the-century architectural survivor is coated with inspirational spray paint poetry – the kind we could all use a little more of in these trying times. The town of Taiban itself still has some hangers-on, and travelers stop for a snap of the old church on their way to Fort Sumner and Billy the Kid historical markers. As we set up our camera on the dirt road under the moonlight, gazing up at the church on the hill we couldn’t help but be overcome with nostalgia of simpler times. (Even better with the howling coyotes as our soundtrack!) Golden yellow from our Protomachines flashlight gives this old gal the warm glow she’s been missing, while the full moon bathed the landscape.
