Presently we still have several inches of snow on the ground. So I share a few images from past Spring Flowers…………
Pueblo, Colorado was the location of Colorado’s Steel Industry. Oh, you mean that you didn’t know there was, and to a lesser extent still is a stell industry here. Now mostly oriented towards recycling.
They has=ve a wonderful, but very small museum. dont have any photos because I was using my digital camera which decided to malfunction. OK, I deserve that because I am supposed to be a film photographer, so focussing on film for this trip was a major error.
But I did take along a film camera and did make a few good shots.
This was one of the buildings that survives from the old mining history. It now belongs to the Historical Society and is being remodel as a new headquarters and Museum home.

The Old Mill House at the Crescent Moon Ranch Park in Arizona, more famous for the Cathedral Red Rocks.
If you look closely you can see the door, especially in the larger image.
Sharin sone B&W images fron a stormy dat in Sith Park, Yes there is a real Sotyh Park, but it’s the name of a valley noy a town.
There IS a Ghost Town (not totally deserted) named Como. It used to be a major hub of the Rail Road, Well start with the Old School House, now the Civic Center:
And also the local Church, I believe it is Methodist. Around here that’s always a good guess:
You can see to the left the home of one of the current residents, Most of the inhabitant live in older cottages from the RR days. Visit the links below for more ty[ical views of Como and the Annual Festival.

I choose this image to sum up my feeling about the Year 2020:
A Word from My Inner Monet
What am I looking forward to for 2021?
Well, my brain tumor decided to return with a vengeance at the end of 2020, leaving me partially blind and with an uncertain future.
My Hopes? To maintain the stability of the sight that I have and retire on disability. Technically I am legally blind and cannot continue my work. But I can see well enough to continue with my photography. And there is a slim chance of visual improvement.
Right now I am waiting….Patience. As my surgeons try to decide if more surgery will help……
Hopefully Next Year will be better!
So I am going to go ahead and make plans for 2021, including photographic plans:
+Of course, continuing my own Blog
+Working with Pre-194’s cameras for My Inner Monet
+Continuing with the Frugal Film Project
+Continuing the Thursday Doors
+Continuing the Inspired By Series
+Adding more Pinhole work, consistent with My Inner Monet…..
+Occasionally entering contests; although not a high priority.
So I am Looking Forward to a Happy, Healthy and Productive 2021
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy 2021!
We arrived home safe and sound last night. After being stopped by a storm and multiple accidents in NM the day before, with clear rods and skies we decided to make the ~600 mile drive from Galllup, NM to Boulder County last night. Had some snow on the way, but less than an inch and easily drivable.
No, this wasn’t the snow that greeted us last night. This image is from a late snow last Spring. But still a very comforting view of Home……..

Please Keep me in your Thoughts and Prayers…….
