Old Town in Albuquerque, New Mexico is one of my favorite places. When I lived there, I loved window- shopping and people watching in this area of Albuquerque. Old Town, appropriately named because it is the oldest part of Albuquerque, was established in 1706. It features historical adobe buildings renovated into stores. Of course, you have to know where to shop for the best prices on jewelry and other gifts like chiles and kachina dolls or you will pay tourist prices through the nose. Even if you're not in the mood for shopping, it's a great place to people watch, photograph the local culture, grab a bite to eat, and find inspiration for your own creative endeavors. More than one story idea for me came from this experience. Today, I'd like to share some of my photos from Old Town with you. I have so many that I will be doing a two-part post on Old Town.
