Did you think you’d seen the last of my Mexico photos? Nearly, but not quite. I spent my final Wednesday, before flying off in the evening, walking around Coyoacan. Chatting, eating, sipping coffee and snapping a few shots. Truth be told, I’d snapped Coyoacan to death already. I looked through my memory card today and chose the final selection for upload to Flickr. There’s nothing in there that I haven’t shot before. But they are the final shots. And that makes them publishable.
I did like the photo below though. The colour of the buildings. The lush green leaves on the trees, yellowed where the bright Mexican sun hits them. It’s a warm, bohemian photo. Very much the opposite of where I am now, in the countryside of southern England. In winter the countryside is a grey and bleak place. Everything is dead and soggy. It comes to life spectacularly in summer, but for now it’s a shell.
London suffers the same drizzle and grey skies, and has greyer buildings, but the lack of vegetation and abundance of colourful lights makes it an altogether different world. But I still miss the Mexican sunshine. Still, it is now March. Some spring flowers are out. But it’s a bit of a wait till summer really begins in May. Till then I have my final shots of Coyoacan to remind me of what the sun looks like. Click here to see them on Flickr.
