the alcove

this is the reward once you get up the ladders.....& you can go down inside it....

140' vertical

take all 3 of these ladders to the Alcove @ Bandelier National Monument. it's a doozy of a climb....if you're afraid of heights I don't recommend it. as many times I've been up there, this time I got scared s**tless coming down....but I made it:-)...still a great adventure!

real scareCROW...

so I figured out my camera...actually a photographer friend was a button pushed which I didn't know controlled the focus. now it's centered and locked into place. hopefully I can't screw up photos as much anymore. lesson learned and a good one @ that.....:-)

murphy's law photography

so last week I took photos @ an invent that was pretty damn important. it was murphy's law night with my camera. I had trouble focusing that night for sum reason. so today I borrow the neighbor's dogs to see if I could figure out what the hell happened...I mean out of 300 photos, I only had 185 left after deleting and editing....go figure. well I had the same problems today with the dogs and neighbor. came home and played with camera sum more but knot until after taking the camera to a photo store in hopes they could tell me something, but nothing. so maybe I've figured out, but won't know until I try again with more subjects. perhaps it was nothing but murphy's law day...I sure hope so!


.....sum of the ruins @ Bandelier National Monument. this is the Longhouse where adobes were built next to the wall and they slept inside the caves of the wall too. one of my favorites @ Bandelier...
