At Twin Lakes private club in Santa Rosa NM, locals say the water level has gone down over previous summers. The evidence is not hard to see along the shoreline. I made this series of pictures of the Lucero family on assignment for theĀ Guadalupe County Communicator, not too bad considering I didn’t know what I might be photographing when I arrived in town that day.

My thanks to Dolores, Lorenzo, Xavier, Nastasia and Maddox.

Central Ventana

I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t had much time to update this blog. Lots of work of late, a blessing. For now, here is a photo from tonight, made with my new Panasonic GF-1, a great new addition to my camera family. More on that soon. Here a waitress cleaning tables as Route 66 / Central Ave. is reflected in the dirty window. I love having a little camera that can capture that kind of detail in that kind of light.
