Captivating Walkway

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandpoint Realty LLC DB36113


This walkway captivated me from the very 1st time I saw and walked it.  When in Mexico for some major dental work, this is where the office was located.  Because I would occasionally step out to this walkway to take a break, from hours in the dentist chair, this is one of the last things to think I remember as being special. 


While I tried numerous times I never felt I captured the full ambiance of the contrasting colors with the crisp blue sky.  And the dark shadow on the pavers only gives hint to the heat soaking in.

I love the vivid colors, Mark!  When my son lived in Southern California, he sometimes went to Mexico for dental services.

Mark, you will find pastel colors like that in Italy, and Spain, ironically when I read your post I had to cringe I just had some Oral Surgery on Saturday:)Endre

Amazing, Mark! If you hadn't told me this was a street you walked, I would have assumed it was from an artist's imagination.

I love those colors. I have also found that sometimes there is no way to truly capture what we see and feel in a photo. Sometimes we just have to be there to experience it ourselves.

A walk not unlike so many in Europe including the iron bars on the windows.

Mark, these are brightly colored buildings, and would give a sense of excitement, except while having dental work done.

This colorful look of Mexico inspired one of the architects from Mexico by the name of Ricardo Legoreta.  He designed a marvelous home that was next to Ron's parents home in Los Angeles.  A

Mark I have been in other countries and many of them seem to share the very narrow sidewalks as Mexico.

HI mark- I think you did a very good job of capturing the beautiful colors!  I am always trying to capture a special scene or moment but as Larry says...sometimes you just have to put the camera down and enjoy it in real life.

Funny how you see a beautifully colored alleyway and I get anxious seeing so much orange (my least favorite color.)  To each their own.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint - Surgery is surgery. Oral surgery is not fun. It involves the head, mouth, nose, emotions and all our senses. I hope you have or are in the process of recovering. The bold colors and cleanliness of that walkway makes me feel like I just walked into a painting. The title you chose is perfect! It is beautiful and captivating! I mean that sincerely.

Top of the morning Patricia,

     All is good and quite pleased with the results.  Just some remaining stitches driving me nuts, and my  Thanks for stopping by.  Trust you are doing well also.  Mark
