Churches, Missions and Moradas of Northern New Mexico

This video is a group of photographs taken by Ken Beres, Burton Diephius and Ralph Phillips on trip to Taos, New Mexico. Most of the missions are very old and historic and not usually visited by tourists. Many date back to the 1700’s and are still used by decedents of the original Hispanic settlers from Spain. Our purpose is to show that a video can be produced on most present computers from old photographs locked in your hard drive and shown to friends as a movie. This one was made with iMovie from a Mac computer

Ralph Phillips became interested in photography in the 1930’s . He received a box camera as a gift and began making contact prints.. Ralph joined the Navy during WW II and became a navel photographer. Later he established a commercial photography business in Cheyenne, Wyoming. About that time everything was going to color, Ralph gave up the studio to pursue his profession as a Professional Engineer. With the advent of digital photography and retiring, Ralph is now enjoying the new DIGITAL WORLD.
