The Frontier Restaurant. A first stop for visitors and locals alike. I count three police cars pulled over for a bite in this pic. Across from UNM since…Continue

Great sky last night and I may have gotten a trifecta of solar images while shooting the eclipse. First of course is the ring of fire itself, but I may have also gotten an image of a solar flare, a sunspot, and the classic Shark Fin sunset which is so Albuquerque.
This image reminds me of one of those Star War scenes from one of the originals. I don't even mind the reverse reflection.
The rest of the images in larger size can be seen …Continue

Last week my neighbor had a break in, and someone stole their son's laptop. I live behind them, by the alley. I just came home and found a man standing in the alley by my apt., drinking a beer. He had a back pack, was wearing shades, a grey sweatshirt, and long dark pants. He has a moustache, a suntanned complexion, and his hair is a dark sandy brown. And he was talking on a cell phone. As soon as I drove up, he and his beer walked to Coal, heading westbound. After a few blocks, he cut into…Continue
