It is in the air. The feel, the slight morning chill, the light. Life is working its way into autumn in the northern hemisphere. And it is harvest time. The photographic possibilities are nearly endless in both subject matter and joy. Included in today's blog are a few photographs I made in a number of places, beginning with the peppers in a Budapest, Hungary market.

This very odd, texturally and vibrant fruit is a dragon fruit or Pitaya. A new world member of the Cactataceae family, it originated in southern Mexico and Central America, but is now grown and cultivated world-wide. I photographed it in the Vienna Farmers' Market at about this time of year.
Home grown in Taos County a number of years ago. The best tomato crop we ever had.

The Santa Fe Farmers' Market is also loaded with wonderful eye-popping veggies and fruit, including this bok choy.
Also from the Santa Fe Farmers' Market are these purple radishes, the Jarrahdale squash, and the New Mexico chiles shown below in succession.
I was delighted to hear from so many of you this week about fathers and grandfathers, brothers, and spouses who belonged to unions or still do, or who were union organizers. Thanks to Connie, Earle, Catherine, Steve, TTT, Christina, and Jean & Same for your comments and great stories related to last week's Labor Day blog.
until next Monday,
a passion for the image©
