Signs of Fall....

Fall will be here in just a few days and the signs of chile pepper harvest are already drifitng around town.

Colorful ristras of peppers can be had for a few dollars and the intoxicating smell of roasted chile is just the best thing you could ever put your nose to.

I wish this was scratch and sniff...but then you'd scratch up your monitor and that wouldn't be good!


Oh, I'm happy to be part of "The Next Best Thing Pinhole Project"
Next Best Thing Pinhole

There's some cool work there so check it out.

New, not improved matchbox pinhole image

last month I started a Matchbox Meditation blog.
It was started because I thought I could do a matchbox pinhole photo for each day of a 21 day meditation I was doing.....a program hosted by Deepak Chopra.

Well, after about 17 days of meditating and making pinhole photos, life got in the way and I couldn't keep up with it.   I have been meditating for years, so keeping up with the sitting and not thinking part was easy..I kept up with that part fine.

I just couldn't maintain the taking pinhole photos part.

I blogged it for 17 days and then stopped.
If you are wondering where this long drawn out wordy parable is's just going here because I terminated the other blog this morning and am going to share a couple of the images I posted over there here at Palomino Pinhole.

This first one was of a sunflower from my yard and corresponded to a meditation on "Feeling Joy".

Black and white film in a homemade matchbox pinhole camera.

this was my favorite image from the few I posted, so thought you might enjoy it too.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great Monday!!!

well, it's about time.....

Here's another matchbox pinhole.
I really like doing these even though they are not so fun to scan to get the sprocket holes...

This is another view of Wild Horse Mesa Bar out west of Albuquerque near Mesita on old Route 66.

Matchbox Pinhole

You've seen this place before here, but wanted to share a little matchbox pinhole photo of it too since this one is in color.

The color shift is a bit weird and I couldn't quite get it corrected in PS, so just left it funky.

This is west of Albuquerque on Route 66.....a  nice little drive for exploring.


I know I'm not the most regular or scheduled poster here, but I do appreciate your visits!

This is just a little teaser of a mini series I'm working on....

As always, it was sloshed around in caffenol for development.

Westward Ho Motel

Sometimes the cool shots are nearby.

This old motel out on Route 66 just west of Albuquerque caught my eye today while I was running errands.  It looked so cool I had to stop for a few minutes and make a portrait of it.

4 x 5 sheet film in a tea tin with a teeny pinhole stuck in it for a camera.

The photo kind of looks like it was made years ago, and I really like that!

Thanks for stopping by!
