Shadow Shot 101 - Oaxaca




















Another slice of typically vibrant Mexican colour from the beautiful city of Oaxaca which sports some of the most amazing colonial architecture in the country. I am returning from the States this week to start posting again.... In the meantime check out more global photography at Shadow Shot Sunday by clicking here....

A hotel with a lamp like that is obviously a welcoming place!

EVEN IN SHADOW

Even in shadow where there is no light,
One may take comfort and one may delight
That darkness has lost its power to thrall
Those who are living on this earthly ball.

Adore those ochry tones! Enchanting! And what a delightful "canvas" for the shadow details of the lamp!

The lamp and sign create a fascinating shadow in the Oaxacan sunshine.
