A meticulously decorated pumpkin in Old Town Albuquerque. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.


Día de los Muertos 2017

Drummers at the Marigold Parade

The Marigold Parade was today. It’s basically a large, quirky, and very exuberant party that moves through Albuquerque’s South Valley each year, celebrating Día de los Muertos. I was able to capture one drummer in the reflective sunglasses of another as they played.


NM State Fair: Ferris Wheel

Ferris Wheel at the New Mexico State Fair

Well … the New Mexico State Fair has come and gone already, a sure sign that fall is in the air (even if it is still pretty warm here in Albuquerque).


Raindrops and Reflections

Signs of Spring

Raindrops and reflections in a flooded South Valley yard. Spring is definitely still playing peek-a-boo with us.


Sandia Hairstreak, 2017

Sandia Hairstreak Butterfly

I’m happy to report that I’ve seen dozens of these little butterflies in the Sandia foothills over the last few weeks. The beargrass is starting to bloom so they’ll soon be going underground — which makes me all the more grateful to have seen so many of them.
