365/2: 293. Turning over an old leaf ...
365/2: 292. Aspen leaf ‘doily’.
365/2 291. Double rainbow.
365/2: 290. Lily.
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.
TomDispatch: Laura Gottesdiener, Adrift in Oil Country.
Yep, Farmington, NM knows most of this already. Even before fracking.
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.
365/2: 280. Late again, but still blustery out.
NY Times: In Texas, a Fight Over Fracking.
“In the end, the fight will not end with the referendum. The producers say only state regulators are empowered to put restrictions on production, but fracking opponents here say they will not be intimidated by lawsuits, which have already begun. Republicans in the state legislature are already preparing legislation to prohibit local governments from banning fracking.” When they can’t get their way locally, it’s time to call in markers from the State legislators.
365/2: 279. Unsettled weather.
Autumn’s here, for sure. Gotta get the boiler repaired soon.
SF New Mexican: Joseph ‘Santa Fe Pulse’ passes away.
Really, really nice guy. I met him while he was working part time at Sam’s Club - he sold me my first Android phone a few years ago. He had a huge Facebook following here in Santa Fe, a truly one-man Santa Fe promotional operation. I don’t think his selfless effort will ever be equalled. RIP, man.
365/2: 278. You can take the guy out of Princeton ... and still ...
365/2: 277. Remnants of our container garden.
Everything’s pretty much ‘past it’ now. No amount of watering can revive plants when they’re into autumn-shutdown-mode.
SF Reporter: New Mexico Oil and Gas Convention Draws Karl Rove.
“Organizers for the oil and gas conference, which started with a golf tournament sponsored by Halliburton on Saturday and ends tomorrow, also refused to let reporters attend today’s luncheon at La Fonda Hotel.”
365/2: 276. Napping wife.
Came in from watering the courtyard, and couldn’t resist the snap.
