Happy Birthday, Albuquerque!
306 years old. That's quite the accomplishment. You don't look a day over 300. And still photogenic as ever. Check out these pictures from the Founder's Day event in Old Town.…

Hola Fixers! It has been a while, sí? I’m now blogging as Barelas Babe, Ph.D, which has a nifty little ring to it, don'cha think? But no worries, this Bareleña isn’t going to get too big for her pantalones (or should that…Continue

Caught this photo the other day and grabbed my 2x telephoto extender to bring in the moon a tad closer.

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…Continue

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…Continue

"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…Continue
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…Continue
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. …Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

“In 2009, we set out to create a film festival in Albuquerque. It was my dream to screen Easy Rider since it was the 40th Anniversary of the film that I believe set the indie film revolution in motion.
Someone once told me to dream big so I dreamed that I was in the Kimo Theater watching Easy Rider with Dennis Hopper. I knew…
Pridefest throughout New Mexico is more than gay and lesbian people celebrating who we are as persons. It asks people who are not gay or lesbian to be more than tolerant. It calls for acceptance, which is both a civil right and a human right. And with that its time to prepare for Pride in New Mexico!
With a sizable gay and lesbian population and a scenic setting at the base of the soaring Sandia Mountains, Albuquerque has become one of the more gay-popular destinations in…Continue

Among my many interests, work and involvement in the Duke City I am also a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life. There are teams throughout the City looking to raise funds by various means to support cancer research and support cancer patients and their caregivers. The team I belong to is called the Court Jesters, because we mostly work in legal support services.
Here's my pitch: I am coordinating a fundraising event on Friday, August 12, a…Continue

Because we are people there will always be crashes; as a group we are just not capable of perfect driving all the time. But the kind of crash that claimed the life of one cyclist and left another in very critical condition last week can be made less likely.
One of the first complaints from motorists about cyclists is when they see a cyclist run a red light or commit some other traffic code infraction. While I don’t think that cyclists should run red lights, can anyone site…Continue
