Spring has sprung, it’s fun to see the valley starting to green up. I should have had my aperture cranked way down here, so everything in the shot would have been in focus. Oh well, nice mountain view and I do love the split of the green and blue colors. I will probably go try this one again.
I painted this scene back in college, with an eye superimposed over it crying (which may have been my eye). I know, corny, right? Every photographer in town has taken shots of these mountains, it’s impossible not to. They’re called the Organs, and they do look like an organ. I always imagine spleens.
I had had a few Tecates at this point, and was mostly hoping the big burly guys inside didn’t come out to see me messing around their bikes. Luckily you can’t see my inebriated, worried face in the reflection… or can you….
I caught a glimpse today, of the divine
Found it under a drift of papers full of empty words
Out of the corner of my eye brilliant color flashed
And then was gone, out the closed window to the sun
I forgot my petty worries, my figmental pain
Remembered the self I met once as a child.
I had to stick my camera through some chain-link to get this unobstructed view- this was after a long day of shooting most of the day and my battery was dying, but couldn’t pass up this tower in the afternoon light. The guy that painted this mural has painted all of the Las Cruces city water tanks.
