We hiked about midway up the base of the Sandia Mountains in Albuq – uerque, New Mexico to make blue moon pictures. The moon was supposed to rise due east. The Sandias are due east. It must have been some other due east. By the time I saw the moon, it was way to far […]


Again. I had another sort of disheartening talk with two older gentlemen today. I decided that before I worked myself into a full blown funk, I’d better do something nice. So, I decided to make a pretty picture. My gallery, Albuquerque Photographer’s Gallery hangs a small show every month in addition to our regular work. […]

When I roamed around Old Town during the lighting of the luminarias, I came to a small plaza with a well and am old bucket. According to the shopkeepers, this is the original well in Old Town, which makes it one of the first wells in Albuquerque. The bucket looks very nicely lighted with all […]


In Old Town, Albu – querque, Christmas takes on many symbolic looks. Luminarias are lighted to guide the walkers. The Plaza and the church are beautifully lighted. There is music in the air. Beautiful, Mexican Christmas music. The air, normally crisp, will be very cold tonight… around 15 degrees. There may even be a second […]
