No idea what I'm doing with editing but pretty no?

Beauty is only Skin-Deep, Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder, Pretty is as Pretty Does…All quotes we need to remember when we talk about Albuquerque.

If you’ve been to Albuquerque, New Mexico you know it will never be on one of those HuffPost lists of the 10 Most… In this case… Beautiful Cities. Or. If you watch for Albuquerque, New Mexico in the news you also know it will never be on that list of the 10 Cities where you are Least Likely to Get Shot by the Cops. Finally…if you look on a last week’s New York Times map at Albuquerque, Mexico we still aren’t beautiful but at least it makes us feel international and exotic.

But Albuquerque is home. I have lived here a long time. I love it. Sort of.

Our assignment for Photo101 today is “Street.” So I paused this morning on my way to work for a shot here or there of the streets in front of my work and near my house. Mostly big picture…a few a little closer up.

Think I’ll try my Smartphone camera tomorrow.

MY FIRST BIG PHOTO-BLOG PROBLEM is figuring out how to post photos in different arrangement in my blogs. I guess this isn’t directly about photography so maybe I should be going to a different source for this info. Suggestions are always appreciated.

Continuing to play with street scene, big picture.

And closer.

And closer.

And CLOSE.

And CLOSE.

  1. I like the story telling of “getting closer” and “closer”

    The photos that capture me the most is the street lamps. Awesome converge.

  2. I agree that Albuquerque will never make the top 100 of most beautiful cities, but its saving grace is those stunning Sandia Mountains that reflect many colors and a shades of pink and red and oh, those stunning sunsets. It will always be a place I like very much…full of memories and some very special friends.
