A Survey of Color in Mexico...

Here are a series of photographs that I took this summer in my travels to Ensenada, Mexico and Manzanillo, Mexico. They're a study of color that gave my camera a run for its money and hopefully they spark the iris of your eye.

As a writer, I am often reminded that reality is frequently much more bizarre than fiction- but the same goes for the visual arts - since no painting I could ever do could embody such colors without appearing contrived. So I hope you enjoy these and let me know which are your favorites...

What an amazing summer you've had! The colors are so beautiful, as must be the tastes and sounds! I love all the photos and have to say they all are my favorites. I can taste all the snack items and food. You've brought your travels to life and thanks for allowing me to live vicariously through you! :)
