We drove home in the evening into a blackening sky, rain and hail beating heavily against the windshield. In the morning, the world was new again.

We weeded the back patio yesterday, but left some volunteers growing at the base of the palo verde.

I have posted a couple stories at using a selection of images from my web site.

Cars are great subjects for the camera. Getting good pictures at car shows, however, is a difficult challenge. Last Saturday, I showed up about an hour before the scheduled start time of the Brit car show in Mesilla so I could grab some pictures before the cars were packed in the plaza like sardines and festooned with signs. The picture of the MG roadster was made with my '50s Contaflex. I liked the old postcard look which reminded me of the great days of touring in New Mexico when O'Keeffe and her friends travelled the dusty highways in fast, open cars.
    I also made a few images with my newly-restored Kodak Reflex II, and will post those soon in the vintage cameras section of the web site.
