Really seeing the world around you in color

Nayarit welcomes you in color
One of my favorite things about traveling are seeing colors. Noticing them, seeing them, capturing them. I tried to do a little of that on this latest trip to Mexico. The colors of Mexico are so saturated, deep, and alive.

The colors of Mexico show up in daily life: on walls, clothing, art, buildings, carts and tabletops.

In the heat of the day I swear you can breathe the colors in, and in the coolness of the turquoise sea and azul sky...
breathe in the sea

It surrounds us...
Isn't she pretty?

In Mexico you even eat color...

And when I visit Mexico, I wear color. Hello toes, so nice to see you in the sunshine again.
I wear colors in Mexico I don't wear in Portland.
