Ride At Your Own Risk
On October 14, 2018, Johnpaul and I went out to photograph the (mostly) burned down general store in Meadow Lake. The charred remains of the structure have been sitting there for at least a year and didn't look like they would be going anywhere anytime soon. Well, on this day they were, in fact, gone. The owner of the property finally decided to rebuild and my burnt down general store is now under construction which does not make for interesting photos.
Not to worry though, while we were out we found something much more unusual and eye catching: a carnival!
A Tsunami Of Clouds
These photos are from October 17, 2018.
The New Mexico skies never disappoint and this tidal wave of clouds rolling over the Manzano Mountains kept me from getting any work done for an entire day because I kept going to window to stare at them even after I came home from taking my photos.
Not A Booming Metropolis
On Thursday (11/08/2018), I went with Johnpaul to a home inspection in Stanley, New Mexico. I came along in hopes of finding some good abandoned houses to photograph and Stanley did not disappoint.

I've been shooting portrait sessions in the Corrales Bosque for ten years and I've always wanted to pull off Corrales Road and photograph this abandoned house but just never got around to it... until a couple weeks ago. The house is actually for sale but I think the intent is for the buyer to want the land and to bull doze this house which is well beyond redemption.
Wear Boots And Bring Water...
On September 30, 2018, Johnpaul and I hiked to the top of Tome Hill. From the parking area, it looks like an easy hike to the top. There are multiple trails to choose from. The "pilgrimage path" is longer but not as steep and the "quick path" goes straight up the steepest side of the hill. Still, from the bottom, it looks pretty easy. We took "the quick path", the one that goes straight up. As previously mentioned, the trail is steep and full of loose rocks. There is no shade and you will get hot and thirsty pretty fast so come prepared.
