Photoblog: Albuquerque On The Go

Mobile Moments Around Albuquerque

sunny 38 °C

As everyone knows, some of the best moments to take a photo come in the middle of the work day when you aren't planning to take any photos and don't have your camera with you. Though much maligned, cell phone cameras can be a great facility at these times. Even if the pixel rates are nowhere near as good, you can still take some passable photos, or at least something that doesn't look like a blurry representation of reality made of Lego bricks, like all camera phones did at first. Until next time, dear readers, enjoy this brief set of shots taken with my Sony Ericcsson W810i, the finest midrange phone a small amount of money could buy in 2007...

A street in the Nob Hill area, Albuquerque's student-y dining and nightlife area, is closed off for filming of a scene from the USA network's TV crime drama, In Plain Sight. Unlike a lot of things filmed in New Mexico, this show is actually set in Albuquerque as well.

To be fair, Albuquerque is a great city for spelling, especially given its semi-bilingual status. This one though, is worse than a bad toothache.

Last but not least, a roadrunner who really lives up to his name. Seeing one is believed to be good luck, and this was my fourth!
