In Chance Encounter, a Taos Indian speaks from the shade with two others who rest on a shadowed hillside. From their body language, Sharp suggests that they are cordial, passing the time, but the distance between them also indicates that they may not be well known to each other. As people passed through one another’s pueblos and lands, these kinds of encounters must not have been unusual. You get the feeling that they are talking to make a connection, seeing who they might know in common.
