I've added some Balloon Fiesta and northern New Mexico images to my "Recent Work" gallery page - see what you think…
I spent a great day shooting with a fellow photographer from the APG Photographers' Gallery, Gale Sutton-Barbere, along the remnants of historic Route 66, working west from Albuquerque. Gale has been exploring sites along Route 66 for years, and was a fantastic guide for my first experience going back into highway history. The weather was cool, damp, and sometimes foggy, but the sun did poke through for us several times. I've added my favorite images in the "Recent Work" and "Black + White" galleries. The image at the top of this page captures a stretch of Route 66 where it parallels Interstate 40 just west of Laguna, NM.
If you are interested in the history of Route 66, there is an excellent exhibit at the Cibola Arts Council's builidng in Grants, NM. Their Route 66 Vintage Museum is built around historic postacrds from the area, all tied to the highway. Definitely worth a visit to dive back into the past!
