What a treat for the public to go inside the barbed wire gates of the Albuquerque Rail Yards (12/1/12). I have so often watched activities there from outside the chain link fences. Our home in South Broadway is so nearby, that we can hear movie directors shouting out their orders to actors and crew. It will be exciting to watch the changes planned for the site coming in the next decade.
It was a true delight as well for photographers as the lighting, the shadows and all the weird little things begging to be photographed all were alive and well on a gorgeous December afternoon inside the cavernous grounds of the historic Rail Yards.
Kudos to the City of Albuquerque on a fine job orchestrating the Open House tour and for all that is transpiring at the Rail Yards.
The photograph below is one of my favorite shots of the afternoon...There's plenty more where that came from at a gallery I have placed open to public view at Picasa...
