This week Alisa’s photo challenge is “contrast.” A few years ago my husband and I spent ten days in Oaxaca, experiencing the textiles, the ruins, and life-altering tlayudas (a local street food).
We’ll start with the obvious. Oaxacans know how to use color:
The other contrasts were more subtle, such as this clash of new meets old: modern street art with a very contemporary message (a protest against Monsanto, perhaps?) against an old stucco wall and a very old cobblestone street, situated in a valley that has been inhabited by humans for over 12,000 years.
