Complete with a church, multiple stores and places of business, a saloon, Wells Fargo, hitching posts and even some tumbleweeds this western town had been the home to the filming of dozens of old and new western movies! I took advantage of this tremendous opportunity to add to my inventory of “really cool shots”.
We took our trip to Hatch on the Friday of Labor Day weekend. For me, the best part of the trip was photographing the fields and the markets. The fields are very accessible and not just chiles growing. We saw acres and acres of Hibiscus’ (for shipment to nurseries) as well as cotton, garlic, corn.
The markets are all over the main streets (not very many). You can purchase a 40# bag of chiles for $25 and another $5 to have them roasted. We bought 20# and had them roasted. I took them home in a cooler to freeze and use throughout the year. We make Chile Rellenos as well as using them in A LOT of different recipes. As you can see, I got some cool photos of the markets and the workers.
Yesterday Cindy and I took the 98 mile drive to the city of Los Alamos, NM. The annual science festival was being held just one day after the 70th anniversary of the testing of the “Trinity” bomb in White Sands, NM. I took a variety of images of the early buildings of the city; most of them being build in the 1920’s for the purpose of staffing teachers and headmasters for a boys ranch. A place for sickly and errant rich boys to come and become healthy and men.
I hope you enjoy photographing flowers as much as I do. Photographing flowers is a great way to capture great images and built your skills & camera knowledge.
