  1. An interesting image, and a sad one, too. You find many such slices of life there, Tim.

    We had a warm, but with a cooling breeze here today. Rick and I got some work done in the gardens, much more left, waiting for us.

    Would like to hear more of your flamenco guitar work, new or old. You are inspiring!

    • Thanks, Lavinia. I have played flamenco in quite awhile now. It would take a lot of pratice to come up with something.

  2. This is a sad photo. It makes me sad to think of the emotional physical pain that permeates our days. Hopefully we are not out and brighter days are ahead.

    • Downtown is fairly abandoned. Between the lockdown and the riots, I expect many of the few businesses that are there will recover. Thanks, Nancy.

  3. Even down to whatever is stamped on that piece of wood. And whether that wood is in fact a box… And that dog escaped and now look at it. Turned into a toy in the shadow of a pitiless zimmer frame. Going now.

    • Hi Tiffany. A lot has been closed because of the lockdown, but now a lot of the buildings on Central are boarded up after the rioter broke windows.

      • That sucks. Yeah, a lot of our businesses downtown are also boarded up, it’s bizarre to see the big hotels all boarded, and heart-wrenching to see the mom and pop shops still closed.

  4. Aww, what a sad, scary shot.
    Tim, I feel so bad for Albuquerque & the citizens. I know you told me that rioters busted up windows, and they got boarded up. Why riot? It’s not just unproductive, it’s counter productive.
    Yet, that little stuffed animal is so clean, and makes so no sense to be there that it seems to represent something hopeful… not out!
