in places

The little streets once walked on

I really like walking in Merida. I can find the little gems of things which always strike my fancy or make me see a likely future of sitting in the chair surrounded by flowers and that wonderful green color.

Shall we sit?
Shall we sit?

It has dawned on me that Merida is full of these little things which always make me wonder what the story is. When I lived in Hanoi, I was pretty sure things had stories I happened to find.

I would often hunt the scenes around the edge of the old quarter in Hanoi and sure enough I’d find something that had all these elements that made me wonder. The pictures above have so many little things that bring complexity to a simple thing, that make me wonder about the why and how of them, and finally make me happy I don’t know.

There are thousands of pictures of sunsets and mountains and beautiful valleys of trees or desert landscapes. I love them. But then there this is story of a scene that someone contributed to, added, subtracted, made it become what it is.

Finding those is almost a project with me. I also enjoy finding the incongruous colors of life and structures and geometries that seem to take the eyes to some point within, above, beyond.

The iPhone 12 Pro does all these things really well.
