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

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

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

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?"

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).

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

This week I let my daughter pick the pictures for today's 'Where in Burque is Adelita' post. It took her a while to finally decide which photos she thought would be the perfect combination to stump you!
I like that some DCFers have suggested some really cool spots for me to photograph. I'm collecting all those suggestions for a post all its own. So if you find a super wonderful spot I should photograph, by all means, let me know. Or if you… Continue

While out and about today, I noticed some conspicuous advertising. I posted this first on my personal blog, but when I realized that I had a picture that included attorney Russ Whitener on it, I needed to post this here on Duke City Fix, too.
I'm still in Albuquerque, as I've noted previously, and thus I missed out on what… Continue

Unfortunately, someone somewhere decided that art was intended for a specific segment of the population. At least here in the United States. Other societies don't have this problem, and it really
is a problem. I have no idea if the Jesse Helms's of the world convinced the majority of the population that art is None Of Their Business and has nothing to do with them, or if it was some uppity art scene somewhere sometime, who wanted to keep the help from attending the openings. Either way,… Continue

So, I was house sitting for some friends in western Colorado. (That's the kind of thing you get to do when you're a freelance writer, and you can work from pretty much anywhere.) I was up there from July 7 through the end of last week.
Whenever I'd check the news, weather, etc. I'd read all about flash flooding and rain and all sorts of wonderful things like that. When I returned, I saw that my tomato plans were outrageously humongous--one has even attached itself to the lower… Continue

My daughter and I were just on 2nd Street between Menaul and Candelaria when I had to do a double take. Itsa Italian Ice is back! They've only been open since July 12th.
We walked in and indulged ourselves with great Italian Ice. They have a full menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, Frito pie, corn dogs, gelati, ice cream, and of course, Italian Ice. Didn't get lunch, but the choices for the ice were many - lemon, cherry, watermelon, black… Continue
