Lightning Over Albuquerque


We had a pretty good thunderstorm roll through Albuquerque last night between 9 and 10 pm. Unfortunately, we didn't get much rain at all in this part of town but we did have a very nice light show for about an hour.

LIFE is JUST a BOWL of chokeCHERRIES!

At this time of year, all the foodies are going gaga over the fresh crops of so called "stone fruits" like peaches, apricots, plums and cherries. Though not as well known as their larger kin, chokecherries are native to North America and are found almost throughout the continent.

While most chokecherries have a strong astringent flavor they do make a very distinctive jelly or syrup and can also be used for making wine.

We have the early beginnings of a nice little chokecherry thicket started in the back yard. Though this years crop will not be enough to do much with, the juice will be frozen and saved to add to next years crop.

Fresh Blackberries and Strawberry

Blackberries and strawberries always make for a tasty snack but only AFTER the photographs have been taken. This is actually the first real photograph made with my new Canon EOS 30D.

Early Morning Tea















As the sun rises over the Sandia Mountains on the east side of Albuquerque, New Mexico each morning, it washes the back deck with beautiful, warm light. For quite some time now I've wanted somehow to capture some of that beauty in a photograph.

In 1945 my dad was among the first American troops sent to Japan after the bomb where he bought this tea set and had it shipped home to my mom and for years I've thought about making a photograph where I could incorporate at least part of the set.

One morning early, I simply put the two together, tea set and early morning light.
