Dried chilies called ristras are a typical sight in Albuquerque NM.
Old Town is the area settled by the first Spanish families in 1706. Today, it is great place to visit.

A familiar site, hanging chilis! Wonderful textures you've brought out here. Ya know, in my seven years here I've only been to Old Town once...I don't get out much :-) Maybe we should meet up some time!

That is a lot of chili peppers! I like the string of lights - bet it's pretty at night!

Brilliant.. I'd be scared to taste that though!

Oh, yes. I bought a bunch once and took them home. They lasted a long time as decoration. I never had the courage to break them off and serve them.

I love doing them, so I am up for that! I'll do a remake!!

My mouth is on fire just thinking about them! Very interesting to me.

I like the layered effect this has! I'd love if you could do something with so much of the white here though, perhaps an overlay to temper it down???

They look wonderful. Nice to see how they hang in the air. Think you can make a good sauce of them!

Interesting how they have hung the chilies up under the lights - I think this would make a very interesting night shot.

That's a cool shot, the way the subject IS the subject, and there is no question about it. Abq is a wonderful city to tour around in.
I wonder if they still fly the huge ristras balloon at the balloon fest?

I want to buy one!

Interesting shot, the rustic elements above ristras and the column add something for me.
