Year in Review

Well 2009 and the ‘aught decade are about to come to a close so like everyone else I was doing a bit of reflection and realized its been one very busy year in motorcycling for me. No wonder I’m so far behind on keeping up with this blog 😉

Christmas Eve on the Plaza

Coming back over the river and through the woods from Grandma’s house we stopped by the Plaza on our way home and I took the opportunity to practice some more night photography. Hope you like it.

Albuquerque River of Lights – Videos

Some more pictures of the lights with some videos of the Carolers and the Albuquerque Symphony that I uploaded to YouTube. I am very impressed with the sound quality of my Canon PowerShot S5IS. For just a “prosumer” point and shoot SLR like camera not a true SLR or a video camera the sound and picture of these is outstanding.

At the time I got it, it was one of the only digital cameras that also had stereo sound. The two microphones are about an inch and a half apart though, I dont know how much “stereo” you can get with that. Having said that these of the orchestra especially sound great. Check em out and let me know what you think.

Albuquerque River of Lights

Over the weekend we went to the Albuquerque River of Lights at the BioPark. The light displays are amazing and good photographic material. Check out the calender for additional entertainment, the night we went had carolers and the Albuquerque Symphony playing for music as we walked. Some of the displays and the fountains are driven by the sound also, very neat.

Fun for the whole family. There was blinkie light up cotton candy and glow sticks for the kids and coffee, tea or our choice of hot coco to warm up after a quick sprinkle made things a bit too cold.

I’ll put up some videos of the Symphony and carolers in another post, stay tuned.

Day 14 – Santa Fe or bust

Last Day.  We had an awesome time at Colorado Gators, I think it was the highlight of the trip for Cece, but now it was time to head home and the weather looked to be turning bad that afternoon on the way.  So far every day it was supposed to be extremely bad weather we stayed insulated in a pocket of fair weather with storms all the way around us. Our last trip was the same way so maybe our medicine wheel really works, but better not to tempt fate.

The imposing ruins of this old church stood guard over an old cemetery out in the middle of nowhere.  The roof was gone and the whole building gutted except for the exterior walls. The place was deathly quiet and the wispy clouds preceding the oncoming front gave it a surreal other worldly feel. Spooky.
