A Backyard Sanctuary
With the incessant drone of bad news thumping like drunk ranchero music in the middle of the night, it is becoming increasingly necessary to turn down the volume on the world at large.
I spend a lot of time outside where the wild things are. There's a whole other world just beyond the door.
The Hub City
The city of Belen, New Mexico is a curious place. I grew up alongside Belen in the neighboring town of Los Lunas. My family moved to Los Lunas in 1982 and at that time Belen was a significantly larger town. They had big paved roads with sidewalks and traffic lights and even some department stores. In those days, Los Lunas had a whole lot of not much.
Abandoned Sears and Roebuck Mail Order Kit Home
The abandoned Sears and Roebuck kit house in Estancia is a must see location for any ghost-town-crawling photographer in New Mexico. It had been on my bucket list for a long time.
As the weeks drag on and the COVID-19 pandemic doesn't go away, I just keep going back through old folders of images and finding new ones to work on. Since I have several thousand hummingbird images from last summer, there is plenty of work yet to be done!
Quarantine With Hummingbirds
In response to COVID 19 the governor of New Mexico has extended our "stay home" orders until May 15 and, with our case numbers continuing to rise, they will likely be extended again after that.
