The Sunday Poem: Rachel McKibbens...Pushing Daisies

Good morning, Albuquerque! I'm rubbing my eyes and feeling my way to the kitchen that's in this house to find the coffee, and you're probably already into your second cup. I salute you! I do! I really salute you, even if my eyes are half closed. So, on…

My ABQ Photo of the Day

The Floral Chapel, found on 3rd Street in the Barelas neighborhood of Albuquerque is one of the finest examples of the Art Deco/Adobe style architecture that was all the rage in the early 1940's. This is a stylish building that has a rich Albuquerque heritage.…

Vista Encantada Detective Series III

  The stuff you want to have happen with blogs is happening—readers are getting involved in the detecting. Well, a reader. Dee turned me onto the idea of Googling the past residents of this house—way too simple for me! She even did some research and came up with the birth and death dates for Esther Nylin, who lived longer in my house than anyone else. It’s interesting to think of the people who spent time within these walls—did they quarrel (undoubtedly), make babies, read good books,…

Sandia Man Cave - is or is not.

I recently went on a hike up in the Placita's to see the famed Sandia Man Cave.  If you are not familiar with this then let me tell ya. Some dude, a student from UNM, back in the 30's found it, said there were some old bones of a Wooly Mammoth, a Giant Sloth and some ancient tools left there by some folk traveling through about 10,000 years ago.

As this has been highly debated among the intellectual science types, I won't go into detail (intellectual science types bore me)…

The Sun and Moon Have Been At it Again

Last night marks the second week since the big eclipse event in Albuquerque.  That means that the moon moved to the opposite side of the playground and another eclipse happened, this time a partial of the full moon.

Reading about the event in a news story last night I prepped my equipment so everything would be ready at 4:30am when I was to crawl out of bed and see if there was anything worth shooting.


I was glad I was ready for the event, for when my wife…

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
