In preparation for the reissuance of Mary Burkholder’s book, Down the Acequia Madre, Al Rendon is taking pictures of the exterior of houses in the Acequia Madre Historic District.  The pictures will be taken during the next couple of months, at all times of the day, whenever the light is most flattering for individual houses.

It is easier for Al to take a good picture if the houses are free of clutter such as yard signs, trash cans, empty flower pots, leaves on the roofs, etc.  One of the more important but most difficult things to have is the curb in front of your house free of cars!

Depending upon the time of day and the house, lights on the porch or inside may need to be turned on.  He will not need access to the inside of any house. 

We are attempting to call and schedule the photo shoots, but sometimes do not have a phone number or email for the residents.  If you are a member of the King William Association, we have your contact information.  If you are not a member, it would help if you would provide your contact information to Monika Perez-Moad at This email address is being protected from spambots.
