Eclipse over Albuquerque

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

   The final session of the arts marketing conference let out at noon. We were on our own for lunch in Louisville before we scattered back to the many corners of the country from whence we'd come. I could have chosen any one of a…

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Pride and Equality Magazine hosted "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" this weekend.  Originally the film, which played at the Guild Theater, was to run on Friday and Saturday (10/21-22) nights only but due to an overwhelming response they added a third viewing on Sunday (10/23).  When the film was announced I dutifully purchased my ticktet along with many other Rocky lovers.  I don't actually remember when the last regular showing of Rocky occurred in Albuquerque or in what theater but I do…

Fall is Almost Here



"Fall in New Mexico. This is why we live here."

A co-worker said this today, and it has stuck with me.

I'm sure many other places also are nice in the fall, but this is the time when New Mexico really shines. Santa Fe just had its fiestas, the State Fair is ongoing, and roasting green…

Cafe Lush

While running endless errands during work I found a new little hole in the wall.  The food is great, service is fantastic, and the prices beat most restaurant in town. 

Entrees range from $5.95 to $8.95.  

 

And they have an espresso bar with trained baristas.  WOW!  

 

It's Cafe Lush.

 

They are open Monday to Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  They will soon be open on Saturday and maybe even Sunday, assuming the staff doesn't…

The end of the drought

The lightning photo drought that is.... 

The Sandias opened up on Saturday so that means that there has been some rain here, some of which happened just as I was landing the other day.  

 

But finally, on Sunday night I was able to get a series of shots from a storm that rolled over the Sandias and over Bear Creek Canyon.  …

Like Magic?

While roaming around Nob Hill and looking for something different, something new I found a tiny hole in the wall with a fun show.  I found a magic show.  Who knew we had a venue for live magic shows in town?  I didn't.

 

I've gone to three shows there and at $10 or so dollars its a good way to spend an hour and a half.  And the plus is these are really friendly folk! Parking is a challenge though - it is Nob Hill afterall.  The shows I've been to started at 7:00 p.m. and that…

Too Late

Tonight is Alice’s birthday, and it’s just been awful.

First, she waited for her food for 45 minutes at the restaurant. Seems they lost her order. Once it was delivered, she bolted her food. Then she and her daughter rushed to the car and sped through town to get to the theater. Finally, at two minutes before…
