Abandoned America: Cuervo, NM

The town of Cuervo, New Mexico, began in 1901 when the railroad came thorough. Then Route 66 came, and the town’s population peaked in the 1940s at over 300. And then the Interstate literally came through town: right through the middle of it, ripping up roads and tearing down houses. It’s dead now.

Cross-Country Route Planning

It's a topic people ask me about more than perhaps any other: if you're planning a cross-country road trip, what route should you take? Let's go over your main choices.

End of the Trail

What do you do when you reach the end of the trail? Turn around and go back, of course.

Beverly Hills Cop

I knew what I was going to call this picture before I even released the shutter.

Down Rodeo

While in Los Angeles, I finally got to do it, after all these years: roll down Rodeo Drive with Rage Against The Machine’s “Down Rodeo” pumping out of the stereo.

Blessèd are the Porn Slappers

If you've ever walked the Las Vegas Strip, you know them. They stand in long lines, handing out stripper cards, the little advertising cards with pictures of girls and a phone number, promising entertainment right in your hotel room.

Girls, Girls, Girls

Never, ever play 6-to-5 blackjack.

Inside Job

In my last post, I showed you my favorite pictures from the Tax Day Tea Party event. This is my favorite person I met there. He was sitting off in the corner, near the park entrance, with his big sign: 9/11 Was An Inside Job.

Tea Party in Black and White

Teabaggers are stupid: this I confirmed by attending a Tea Party event on Tax Day in Las Vegas. These are my favorite pictures from the event.

Vegas Tea Party

Way back on Tax Day, I attended a Tea Party event at Sunset Park in Las Vegas. When I posted about it at the time, I included snapshots I took with my point-and-shoot digital camera. I also had a real camera with me, of course, and I'm now developing my film, so it's time for more Tea Party fun.
