Shadow Shot Sunday 77 - Mexico















Back to the vibrancy of rich colours from Mexico for these two shadow shots. First is a bust of Don Filomeno Mata (not Joseph Stalin!!) which can be found in the Centro Historico here in Mexico City, and second is this charming cafe table in the former mining village of Real de Monte....










I linked these two totally incongruous images immediately in my mind because of the boldness of shape and shadow, but also because blue and orange is such a popular colour combination here in Mexico; one that certainly would simply just not work in England or other grey climates...

Ha! You are so right about the blue and orange not working here. They sure would stand out! But really, wouldn't they be a beautiful relief to ever-present grey this time of year? :)

Oh, I meant not working well her IN CANADA! They are gorgeous in your photos!

Hey Harriet said...

Gorgeous! Such a cheerful place! I could never stay in a crabby mood for long if I lived there as all that vibrant colour would snap me out of it quick smart! Not that I stay in crabby moods for long where I am. Not too long anyway :)

Have a great week Catherine!

love your shadow shots and I'm excited to find your blog. I've spent time in southern Mexico and it's very much time to get back. I hope to keep up as best I can with your posts.

I'm smiling. And you know why, don't you? I read the first line of your post (not Joseph Stalin!) and I started cracking up. You read my mind! Great photos. But Filomeno, mate, are you sure, you had nothing to do with that Siberia business? :-)

Greetings from London.
