Hands down, fall has been my favorite season over this past year.
Someone told me the other day, “Hey, brown is a color too!”
Keep in mind that November will complete my family’s first full year in Santa Fe, and we weren’t really sure what all to expect from fall, as we pretty much missed it when we moved here last year.
My parents have been in town for the past week and a half or so, and we have been
dragging chauffeuring them all over the countryside, squeezing as much as possible into a too-short trip. I’ve enjoyed myself anyway!
I photographed all of these images over the past couple of weeks, around northern New Mexico. They make me happy.
If you were to hypothetically hover over or click on any of these images and see that I named them all something starting with “bloggityblog,” that could hypothetically give a clue as to how happy they make me. I usually name my blog files something like “blog1″ or “blog2″ or “blog47.” Depending, you know.
Oops, slipped that one in there. Just enjoying the lovely fall scenery! (I actually felt like I had to include this because landscape photography is so totally NOT my normal “thing,” and I wanted this post to be outside of my comfort zone but still represent what I love to do the most—photograph children.)
(This one makes me smile and think of my boys; when we first moved here they were so excited to see cactuses—cacti??–all over, and every time they would spot one, somehow it started that they would yell “WILD CACTUSES!!!”
Even with all of those years I missed out on a real winter, this year I am enjoying fall too much to be ready for snow.
That is not a complaint.
