Night Before Race Orbs


Sounds of merriment ring up the hills into my room.  It’s the night before the Bisbee 1000 Stair Climb and people from all over the world (I heard French tonight) are here to climb our stairs.

People are signing up for the privilege of drinking craft beers to ease their nerves before the big race.

Ah, there’s those french speakers.

We’re not quite sure what beer has to do with stair climbing, but it’s Friday night and you have to do something with the out of towners.

You can tell the out of towners because they wear shorts.

Here’s a local who’s really not that interested in all the hoopla.

It’s just a beautiful night to be out and about in Bisbee, Arizona.

Big day tomorrow, they’ll be racing past my house in the morning.  I’ll be clapping and cheering on those stair climbing adventurists.

For those of you who are new to this blog or would like to revisit the explanation as to what orbs are, this might be of help:


About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.
