ABQ Pics: Remembrance of Things Past

The Aztec Motel. Or what it used to be. I photographed this place before I moved here. Sheesh, it was one of the reasons for moving here. A kitschy hold-out on the corner of  Now & Then.                       Sad to see it go.  Read it and weep....

PS: This is my first photo on DCF. Feel free to respond with comments or photos

Thanks, Dee.  Great idea--so much history to preserve.  This place, the Aztec, a bitter sweet landmark--so sad to lose . . .

It made me feel beyond sad to not remember what it looked like!  After walking by just the sign on my way to the bus stop for so long, I forgot about the crazy cool building that went with it.  Now it's just a vacant lot that might very well be vacant for some time.  Thanks for posting this!

I would encourage you to post more pic blogs! I've often thought of doing so, but I mostly just posted my photos in the DCF Flickr Feed. I think I might follow your lead and post a "pic blog" or two myself...

Thanks for commenting everyone. I hope to post a pic a day on my DCF blog.   Funny you should mention the sign Krista, that's tomorrow's theme!  Ron, it would great to see your pics here too.  Dee

Thanks John & Doogie, you're right, another addiction. Just what I needed. I blame you Doogie,        I really do. Ha!
