La Llorona Country
La Ladera Road in Peralta, New Mexico has been my shortcut from the bottom of Meadow Lake hill to north bound Hwy 47 for years. I used to take this way on my commute to UNM in Albuquerque circa 1994 - 1995. The road itself has changed very little over the past 25 years. I have always envisioned La Llorona walking the ditch bank and one night I even saw a black swirly mass right behind my car. (No, not exhaust fumes) Needless to say, never pick up anyone on this road at night. Ever. Especially if they're wearing a white dress and have no eyes. And should you decide to go walking after midnight, be sure to leave instructions for notifying your next of kin.
A Forest By The River
My family moved to Los Lunas, New Mexico (from Albuquerque) in 1982. In all these years, I have only ever shot one portrait session in the Los Lunas Bosque and that is the only time I've gone down there.
I am DeAnna Vincent, fine art and portrait photographer in Los Lunas, New Mexico. These are the photos from my everyday adventures.
