    Love that desert-scape.

    Here’s what I think of – The Partridge Family.

    Window walkin’ downtown, feelin’ mighty good
    And I noticed from the corner how all alone she stood
    Underneath the lamplight, an angel in disguise
    Lonely little runaway with teardrops in her eyes

    Crazy little ragdoll, her hair was wild and tossed
    And I put my arm around her, ’cause I knew that she was lost
    She didn’t seem to notice that anyone was near
    ‘Till suddenly she turned to me and whispered in my ear

    Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
    I want to go home, and help me get home
    Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
    I need to get home, need to get home

    Showed me a ticket for a Greyhound bus, her head was lost in time
    She didn’t know who or where she was
    “And anyone that helps me is a real good friend of mine”
    Real good friend of mine

    Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
    And help me get home, help me get home

    Walked her to the station and kissed away the tears
    Knowing I’d remember through all the coming years
    Ragdoll on that Greyhound who waved with all her might
    Weeped against the window as the bus rolled out of sight

    Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
    I want to go home, and help me get home
    Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
    I need to get home, need to get home

    Nice collage, wonderful colors on the sunset (sunrise?). And Sally, I’m going to have my wife come back to check out your comment, she could probably sing those words without blinking (sad but true).

  3. Lessie says:

    Lovely lovely scenery. I love your pictures of the countryside. When I think of New Mexico, I think of a friend who hails from Santa Fe (we’ve lost touch) and Jimmy Santiago Baca. Do you read his poetry? I watched Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles this week and the episode was placed in NM supposedly. I always feel an affinity for NM b/c it and SC are often next to one another in those depressing education rankings. Sigh. We are moving up though! Never give up!

    Hi Jelvistar, Yes at sunset the Sandia Mountains turn the most anazing colors! Thanks for visiting Albuquerque DP!

    Thank you, Sally. I used to love The Partridge Family. The other thing I think of when I think if Albuquerque is Bugs Bunny and taking a right at Albuquerque. Thanks for visiting ALbuquerque DP.

    Hi R&R. It is sunset! Thanks for visiting Albuquerque DP.

    Hi Jilly, The Balloon Fiesta is awesome. 100’s of hot air balloons flying at once is an amazing sight! Thanks for visiting Albuquerque DP.

    Hi Ham, No purple sage. That is the color that the Sandia Mountains turn at sunset. Sandia in spanish means watermelon and they are named for the color they turn at Sunset. Thank you for visiting Albuquerque DP.

    Hi Isabella, I just did not have a good photo of an adobe house to put in the collage. Thanks for visiting Albuquerque DP!

    Thank you, Lessie. Thanks for visiting Albuquerque DP.

    Thank you, Southern Heart. The Balloons are amazing! They sometimes land right near where I live. Thanks for visiting Albuquerque DP!

    Loved Albuquerque when I was there during the balloon festival! Great photos. Like the canted angle of your building. Nice tension!

  6. Kim says:

    I think of one of your famous sunset photos when I think of Albuquerque. This collage brings out other thoughtful aspects. For some reason I also think of 50s era scientists and rad labs, like Sandia labs in California. Who knows where that comes from in my brain, cuz I’ve not been through there. I’m playing catch up on traveling through theme day posts. . .

    I definitely think of hot air balloons when I think of Albuquerque. Good choice! I also think of my sister who lives in your beautiful city. I guess I’ll have to make my way for a visit one of these days.

Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
