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.

I spent a few days making pictures of two of my favorite people, my nieces Kyla and Alanna. Mostly I shot bw film 120 film with my Holga, but it might be weeks before I am able to process it and print or scan it. For now, here is an underwater shot with my Canon G9. If I didn’t have the underwater housing, I doubt I’d still keep the G9.
