Sometimes when you start a series you don’t know where to begin. I have colors, rich saturated colors for you. But, I will start slow; raising the intensity as we progress; kind of like rising the volume. Which remains me of another photo with lost of colors: Pump up the color.
Today’s photo is one of the better examples, I’ve seen, of why people leave bewitched after spending some time Antigua and Guatemala. They feel an urge to return, as Some of them, actually come back for a long stay after taking a trip to learn Spanish.(by the way she will start the Omaha Daily Photo— you go girl!).
So what’s in the spell? Well you need start with sunshine, lots of it in the morning and in the afternoon—even in the rainy season; a nice warm and temperate weather; add tons of color and texture to that; don’t forget to include the exotic element; stir up culture and tradition from the many flavors of Guatemalans (Indigenous, Xincas, Garífunas, Mestizos, Whites, Catholics, Evangelicals); don’t forget great Mayan, Colonial, Modern and vernacular architecture with many contrasts; mix-in fresh fruits, vegetables, and Guatemalan dishes; you now have about half the ingredients of the magic potion. I will continue with this recipe as we progress—keep the flame on low for now.
You can see the previous color series by picking the Color Palette category on the sidebar.
