Being There


Driving all night.

If you are coming from the west on I-40, this is where you stop. For a day breaks breakfast. Then you go on your way. You may continue east. To Texas. And beyond. Or, you may turn north on I-25 and stop in Santa Fe, or continue further on state roads to Taos. Or, stay on I -25 to Denver. Or you could head south. To Las Cruces or El Paso. Right on the United States – Mexico border.

These particular Garcia’s is located on Central Avenue. Route 66. There’s a couple of them. My favorite is on 4th Street. It’s just not traveling convenient. Especially is it is just a rest stop. Or, food break.

All sounds pretty romantic, doesn’t it? It is. Just writing those names excites me. Just thinking about breakfast at Garcia’s excites me even more. If the waiter or waitress asks, “Red or green,” just say “Christmas.” If you’ve been there, you know what I’m talking about. If not, you’ll learn quickly.

The picture. Kind of the usual. F8, or something like that, and be there. Let moving subjects have a little motion blur. Clean up the color just a bit.
