Pug Life

I am a... how do you say... Pug Pusher.

I volunteer locally with New Mexico Pug Resuce, and when I catch word of pugs in need of homes - the inner pug pusher in me comes out! Currently this local non-profit group has three more adoptable pugs. All three are 2-3 year old black pugs, two boys and one girl. I hear the boy and girl have grown very attached and adoption of both to one home is preferable.

Also, although several months out, please mark your calendars for… Continue

Summer Movie Madness

Mamma Mia!

In this dreadful post graduate school quest for a real full time job with benefits, in this soul sucking, incredibly demeaning time, there is Mamma Mia! A summer movie that is what summer movies ought to be, sweet, fresh, funny, surprising, and surprisingly beautiful; I’ve seen it three times, once for every week that it has been out at the theater. My plan is to keep on going until I decide to run away and start my all girl… Continue

Rio Rancho Badlands

Today I lead a group of Flickr photographers to the badlands west of Rio Grande.

Rio Rancho Badlands

We left about 4pm from Rio Rancho, but I got us lost on our way there. We got there finally about about 5:30pm. The coniditions were perfect for photographs. It was cloudy with rain clouds but… Continue

Ever since Adelita posted this, my family has been on a mission to find image # 2. Tonight, my son and I decided to hunt down the Happy Face. First, we fortified ourselves with fuel here.

And then we saw this on the way to… Continue

A Safety Message to Runners

As a runner, I cringe when I see runners doing certain behaviors that might be harmful to themselves. As I was walking the dog this morning, a runner passed me and I had to hold myself back from giving her unwanted advice. But as I was coming into the house, I had a thought -- why shouldn't I give unwanted advice since I'll feel better for putting it out there and it might just save a runner's life or at least some of their physical well-being.

The advice comes in two parts. First,… Continue

The Black Horse

Today I was asked to take photographs of a horse belonging to a friend, Patti.

Visiting Patti's Horse

I took this shot of the horse running. It was not running too fast, so I had to get close to get the blur on the backround. This is a neat horse.…

Starbucks' NM Mug and Koko's Corner

I was at Uptown yesterday to hit Anthropologie and had to stop by Starbucks for an iced something (did you notice how hot it was?) I'm usually immune to Starbucks marketing but this time they tapped into my NM love with a state-specific mug. It has a picture of the Taos Pueblo on it (the usage of which I'm ambivalent about) but the hook for me was the text, 'New Mexico, red or green?'… Continue

The Bum

An inebriated man stopped me near our home and asked,
"where am I?"
I told him he was in downtown Albuquerque. He replied,
"Oh, cool, I was born here; how is everybody?"

Blog Crazy

Turns out, my dogs have their own blog...

I had no idea they were so verbose.

Seems they have a lot to say about being dogs, living here in Albuquerque, and current events in the dog world.

Gonna have to make sure they don't get a hold of my BlackBerry...

Fire in my yard...blech

Pretty soon I may not have a house TO sell.

I've been lamenting that my house is in month 4 of being on the market. To add to the bad luck? I was just awakened in the middle of the night by a doorbell ringing madly; it was a neighbor telling me someone had set a small fire in my yard. Especially given my chronic insomnia, I was not happy about my one chance at slumberly bliss being messed with (I really want to use other language here but I am trying to keep it clean).

I… Continue

Defining the Digital Print

Inspired by Khan's piece on Kinkade, here is an article that was published in Tamarind's 2006 newsletter. Enjoy!

Defining the Digital Print

People are confused about digital prints. What are they? Are they originals? What is the difference between a digital print and a lithograph? Are they worth as much as lithographs? What is the difference between hand printing and digital printing? Which one should I buy?

Let’s clarify the names first. Whether they are called… Continue
