Capture The Colour

I’m taking part in a photo contest sponsored by http://www.travelsupermarket.com/c/holidays/capture-the-colour. You can find the particulars on this link to participate.

I was also nominated (though nominations are not needed to take part) by Gary Denness http://garydenness.co.uk/2012/07/18/capture-the-colour/

RED – Oahu, Hawaii

RED: We had just walked in to the Moana Surfrider Hotel in Waikiki when we heard drums and cymbals, and turned to see a group coming in to the hotel with this red dancing lion. It was a warm night, and the kids must have needed to come up for air.

WHITE – Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

WHITE: We were out driving and exploring the Puerto Vallarta area, pulled over at one point to take photos of the ocean, and looked over a rock wall to see this beautiful cupola.

BLUE – Sayulita, Mexico

We took two day trips from Puerto Vallarta to Sayulita. We couldn’t get enough of this beautiful little town north of PV, with a wonderful stretch of beach and blue ocean, perfect for swimming, surfing, and don’t forget the souvenirs.

YELLOW – San Pancho, Mexico

The true name of the town is San Francisco, but everyone lovingly calls it San Pancho (Pancho being the nickname of anyone named Francisco); this town is north of Puerto Vallarta, beyond Sayulita. The young woman pictured is a Huichol Indian making beaded jewelry.

GREEN – Kauai, Hawaii

The lanai of our Kauai hotel room provided this inspirational view every morning as the sun broke through the mist. The peace at sunrise, the palms and Ha’upu Mountain Range was my morning meditation. I felt the spirit of Aloha.

Here are my five nominees to take part in this contest:

    Do they have much diversity in Mexico? I thought Mexico would open itself up to different ethnic groups like Chinese, whites, middle easterners, etc. Maybe they could start celebrating diversity and multi-culturalism by opening their borders to the rest of the world and start bringing in immigrants from everywhere.

    • Angeline M says:

      Oh my, Susan. Mexico is VERY culturally diverse. They don’t need to start bringing in immigrants….the immigrants are there, the borders are open. If you go to a place like Mexico City, you would think you were in Paris or New York; there is every ethnic group represented. And if you go to places like Puerto Vallarta and San Miguel de Allende you would think you were in Canada, for some reason, there are many Canadian ex-pats in those cities, and a huge number of American ex-pats live in Mexico. Just take a look at a website http://www.mexicomyspace.ning.com
