The last day of summer

Today is the last full day of summer.  Since I had a little free time between appointments today, I decided go out and see what the last full day of summer looks like.  It was a beautiful day, so I headed down to Old Town Albuquerque for a little scenic photography.

And happy fall.

There’s nothing that says “end of summer” in Albuquerque like the sight of shiny red ristras and the heavenly smell of roasting chiles.

These were just too cool to pass up.  And look at all the wonderful texture.

Yes, it really is the end of summer.  The fall colors are coming out all over.
