Fe Chili - Sante Fe, New Mexico
This is another example of just roaming around looking for a photo opportunity.
I was visiting Sante Fe, New Mexico for the hundredth time and was actually
finding myself getting bored. Normally when I'm in Sante Fe, I like taking
photographs of historic Spanish style buildings such as churches or missions.
So I decided to wander off the main trail, (that's a pun, the Sante
Fe trail ends in downtown Sante Fe) and walked along the back streets
to find something uniquely different from what I've photographed before.
I happened to come across a small market area, tucked between two other
buildings where dozens of chili bundles were being hung and dried under
the hot southwestern sun. It must have been this variety of bright shades
of red that caught my eye and the focus of my camera.
