This weekend (September 2) I get to take a tour of the old main prison. February 1980 the prison was taken over by inmates and 12 officers were assulted and 33 inmates were killed in a span of 36 hours. They have been working to create a museum at the site. It had also been the location for a number of movies. Since they have started doing tours they have sold out of the tours. I’m glad I get to see the inside. I was at the prison on field trip when I was in high school. It was a scary trip from what I remember.
I will be going to the Farmers Market in downtown Albuquerque on Saturday. I will also be taking pictures in the downtown area. Come find me and say hi.
Going to El Malpais this weekend to get shots of the stone arch on east side of monument. Come out and find me.
This coming Saturday (August 12), I will shooting at the New Mexico Gay Rodeo. The rodeo takes place in Santa Fe at the Rodeo de Santa Fe grounds; come check it out.
I will be going to the Very Large Array (VLA) near Socorro this weekend. If your not familiar with this location it was the location for the movie Contact. Should be fun if you’re in he area Saturday hit me up.
