In honor of Breaking Bad's FINAL SEASON airing this coming Sunday...I am re-posting this blog entry I made during the filming of an earlier season...Our home is located near downtown Albuquerque and one evening they were filming a big shoot out with Jessie Pinkman and Walter White against some bad guys...The filming was at an historic and abandoned Santa Fe Rail Yard a stone's throw or three from our backyard...




Looking like the full moon nesting in the bare trees of South Broadway, an eerie light shown.The light was in a huge box of lights set on a gantry crane over the downtown railroad yards.






Albuquerque residents are growing used to the occasional odd bright light in the city at night. We have come to know that they indicate a 'movie/tv shoot' is in progress. In this case, the shoot was for the AMC hit series, Breaking Bad.

Who is that guy high in the sky?

Ready for his closeup and no one really knows he's there behind the bright light.

A gang of folk enjoying the warm airs of early spring? They might be enjoying the weather but this crew is hard at work on filming the AMC hit, Breaking Bad.
