Friday, January 30, 2015 was cold and wet with a mix of rain and snow falling most of the day. The front end loaders, grader, tractor and back hoe got the day off on Friday.

Through The Pink Blinds Darkly

Najar is taking after Spunk, playing behind and through the blinds. She’s not as aggressive as Spunk, but she competes on cute poses. You can see Spunk’s “Blind Attack” at http://photoofthedayetc.com/2014/11/06/blind-attack/

Old Adobe

OldHouse

This is one of the old adobes on Corrales Road that I’ve been documenting for the past couple of years. This abandoned adobe house might be considered historic, so the owner may not be able to tear it down, and may be letting it deteriorate to the point it will fall down on it’s own, but that’s all speculation on my part. The north wall caved in a couple of years ago — you can see the north side of this house on my blog post from August 9, 2013 at http://photoofthedayetc.com/2013/08/09/old-adobes/.

Hoot Owl at Dusk

IMG_3675

While walking back home in the dark from what turned out to be a 6.5 mile walk, I could hear the owls hooting at each other. As I looked around to see where the hoots were coming from, I saw what looked like a large cat at the tip top of a cottonwood, backlit by the afterglow of the sunset. The owl was too far away, and it was too dark, for me to get anything but silhouettes of it.
