La Junta Light and Power


Found a great old yellow brick Art Deco style building in La Junta, still serving as the local power switching station.

Bristol Colorado Service Station



The old gas station in Bristol Colorado. Our Colorado ghost towns guide listed Bristol as having some interesting buildings. When we got there we discovered that while not thriving, Bristol was still holding its own. The gas station was being restored by the son of the owner. He would drive over from Denver on the weekends to do the work. The locals were friendly once we broke the ice and had some wonderful stories about life in southern Colorado.

Shadow, light and reflection


I was waking thru this highway underpass a month ago and liked the way the light was framed. So I went back with my camera about a week ago to see what I could capture. I'm not sure if I like how this turned out. I think I need to come back on a day with less contrast, and I need to think some more about the composition.  I also find the distorted angles distracting - the wall, floor and ceiling are not square - so next time I will try shooting with a normal lens.

Cherry bomb



I have no idea what the name of this flower is, but it remind me of a cherry bomb.

Blooming Prickly Pear Cactus



The wet spring in Colorado delayed the wildflower bloom this year allowing us to experience this blooming prickly pear cactus the last weekend on May.

The Christening


Getting the new vehicle dirty in Picketwire Canyon, south of La Junta Colorado. The Toyota did quite well in the slick mud coating the canyon.
