An old gas station — and equally old station wagon — are framed by a classic New Mexican sky and classic New Mexican weeds. It’s been an incredibly dry year so far.

There’s something so endearing about the little bee hot air balloons. They’re a family of three, but the dad (Joey) was missing when I took this photo at the Balloon Fiesta. What I couldn’t possibly have seen at the time (and what’s difficult to see in this view) was that the pilots were clearly talking to one another. I love this view and now strongly suspect the positioning wasn’t just a coincidence.
