365/2: 297. Just took off my boots, padded onto the carpet in my socks, and got this in my arch.
Some believe cowboy boots are all pretense. This little bastard is part of the reason for having a pair or twelve. These don’t stick and stay in hard leather soles. My Skechers, however ... pick up every one of Nature’s sharp implements and deposits them with deadly efficiency in any padded or plush floor covering. Not even a bath mat is safe.
How to start a Birdcage in near darkness, in a suit (success was enjoyed).
365/2: 296. Yeah, I’ve lost the thread ...
Been proc’ing so many car pix, I can’t tell good from bad anymore.
The Verge: Google VP’s 135,908-foot leap breaks world record for highest free-fall parachute jump.
“The accomplishment came seemingly out of nowhere with no fanfare or media buzz whatsoever; The New York Times’ science Twitter account first reported Eustace’s incredible feat.” A quiet one-up; I like it.
Okay, kids. Quiz time. What is it?
First person who says “car” gets a virtual knuckle sandwich (wink).
365/2: 295. Very horizontal.
... still ... endlessly ... processing ... images ... from ... Concorso ...
I took a bit of time away; you need that when editing. When I come back to it, I think “jeez, that’s a good shot!”
365/2: 294. The ‘usual’ sunset ...
365/2: 293. Turning over an old leaf ...

365/2: 289. New Mexican autumn color contrast.
365/2: 288. Warm enough to sit out under the portale this evening. Nice sunset, too.
Later: Aforementioned sunset.
365/2: 287. Diving straight into sunset.
No chemtrail comments please. I’ll rip you a new @%#$@%$$%.
365/2: 286. Galisteo Basin Preserve, late afternoon harsh light.
SF Reporter: Santa Fe’s Newly Improved Caboose.
The orphan caboose at St Francis and Cerrillos roads enjoyed a makeover.
365/2: 285. Playing with light and software again.
Sorry I’m late with some of these 365’s. Still trying to plough through all the shots from Concorso ... last thing I want to do is deal with *another* photo. Editing is eating up all my creativity.
KOB.com: Sandia Tramway passengers stuck for an hour Monday morning.
“Worst tram episode ever? Probably in 1978, when a tram got stuck overnight. A prominent Albuquerque attorney was among those on board. His wife was out of town, but she discovered he was up there with his secretary – oops!” Local color.
365/2: 284. Should have posted yesterday, but was feeling a bit under the weather.
Decided to do nothing more complex than reload my flash gear bags.

365/2: 282. Aspeniferous.
365/2: 281. This crazy robin ...
... in the midst of a cold, COLD rainstorm, decides she wants to sit in the skanky bowl I put out for the coyotes to drink from. She did a little bathing, and sat there for at least ten minutes in the cold water. Weirdsville.
SciAm: The Biggest Methane Leak in America Is in New Mexico.
“The high emissions were recorded in 2003, prior to the advent of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking ...” The San Juan basin portion of NM has been a fruitful natural gas spot for decades.
