When the Lens-Artists challenge was ‘Blue’ I replied to Tina’s comment by saying, “Frida Kahlo’s house is only one of coloured houses in Mexico City; this was my blue post; now I’m out looking for yellow, orange, lime green and purple challenges!”
So she has now obliged me with a challenge for ‘Colourful’.
I was thinking of Puebla, a short distance away from Mexico City, a city that contained all those bright colours and more.
Where to start? Maybe with a yellow wall.
A wall halfway between yellow and orange. A lime green wall. An orange wall.
A purple wall. Al wears bright colours so he’s usually pretty easy to spot but in Puebla he often disappeared into the woodwork so to speak.
How could I have forgotten pink in my original list of colours? Pink is a colour I always associate with Mexico and it was certainly in abundance in Puebla. Lime sorbet & pink buildings accent one another.Blue & purple buildings.The name of the city spelled out in bright letters with a yellow building in the background.This is that same yellow building from the side with streetlamp featuring winged dragons in front.Wine bottles used to root cuttings in a dark red & yellow cupboard .A bright mural based on the traditional embroidery designs of the dresses in Puebla.Even the food is colourful. Here are the three great sauces of Poblano cooking: mole, pipian, and adobo, combined into one meal with a bright accent of avocado. And their dulces (sweets) are famous!More of the Lens-Artists Challenge: Colourful.
