Albuquerque Photowalk

Today I participated in what was billed as the world’s largest-ever photo walk, organized in celebration of the Google+ one-year anniversary. At last count, there were 106 cities participating. It was a great time, hunting photo opportunities in the 100-degree heat. More photos from today to be shared on Google+ in the coming days!

Keyhole

I seem to recall movies from, say, the 1950’s where people would peak through a neighbor’s keyhole to see what they were doing. It doesn’t work nowadays. (Of course, now you can just log in to facebook and see more than you ever wanted to see.)

And Yet Nothing Will Come

Alma Mater

Eclipse Shades

I never did put these to good use. They arrived in the mail the day after this year’s annular eclipse. And I guess the Venus event yesterday didn’t interest me enough to pay attention. At least I’m prepared for 2017!

Keep The Packing Feet

I don’t consider myself to be a hoarder, but I occasionally keep random things that might better be thrown away. Such is the case with these “packing feet” from a washing machine I purchased several years ago. It’s a good thing I held on to them, as I obviously needed a photography subject this morning. …
