Socorro, New Mexico
9:02 PM on June 6. The view from the balcony at the Best Western. It had been a long day but I was trying to stay up and alert for a 10:00 scheduled phone interview about the drive-in theater project with WGN in Chicago. As I've found in the past, it can be a real advantage to do photography travel at the point in the year when the days are longest. The downside of it is that if you want to work a subject in both late and early light, it can mean shooting at almost nine at night and then again at just after five in the morning. Not a problem this time. The next theater on my list was all the way over in Globe, Arizona, so I was able to sleep in the next morning, no need to rush since I wanted to slow down at this point and do some off-topic work with the wonderful New Mexico and Arizona landscape.
