Your second photo of the sugar bowl and creamer is just exquisite. That is a framer! I can’t believe you took it with an ipad. I want to title it “Violet Ribbon” of course.
Mary Ann Moss says
Uma my love – I got an iPad camera connector thingy majingy. Works great. I love PHOTOGENIE app for editing. You can load up all your pics at once instead of one at a time with LUMINANCE app

And I am up to my elbows in silver polish……and you are slothing! (And having a fabulous time, I can tell!) I wouldn’t change my Christmas as all my family arrives this afternoon for a full week of fun, but there is that call of Mexico and sitting in the sun, and reading, and QUIET (which does not happen with SIX grandbabies 7 and under in one small bungalow…..)
Have a wonderful time, please, and keep sharing it with us all. I can almost feel my bones warming, looking at your photos!
loving all the peeks into your trip…beautiful photography and beautiful colors…wishing I was you right now! Enjoy all those gorgeous details..xo
OH, I have that book on the Maya!!
on a techie note… you aren’t taking these photos on your iPad, I am sure.
So are you putting them from your camera to the iPad? how?
Love the colors, DOF and framing.

Not related to this post, but wanted to tell you that I copied all the recommended books to you in an earlier post. Just finished reading Still Life by Louise Penny. The language is so descriptive and the characters are fleshed out. Sooooo enjoyed reading it.

amazing. i just looked over the last few posts and photos. i am swimming in my own dreams and memories of san cristobal. my friend wrote a song about our travels there called “mexican dalian landscape”. those words instantly flashed to mind when i saw the colorful doors and walls and sky. we made our home at la casa morada (“the purple house”) when i was there. i wonder if it still exists… we also stayed at la casa loca (“the crazy house”!). thank you for this wonderful trip down memory lane! 🙂 enjoy your stay! drink up the vivid colors and soak in the slowness of it all.
Keep your post coming I so enjoy traveling along with you.

SIGH. Breathing deeply! Tension slips from my mind like wine poured slowly into a glass through your eyes. Truly lovely and beautiful. I can’t think of a better place to be right now. I’ll just pull up a chair and sit quietly beside you. I promise you won’t even know I am there. 😉

What a marvelous blast of color you send us! No wonder you are dreaming vividly. Thank you for sharing your journey with those of us hunkered down by snow 🙂
Makes my heart ache. So beautiful.
