Color, Color, Everywhere

I’m always taken by the colors that surround me here in Panama. It’s a bright country, both aesthetically and socially.  The people, the clothes, the music, the weather, the fruit, the buses – it’s loud and bright with colors here.  Panama has a large Caribbean influence which somehow, in my mind, adds to the sultry sexiness that seems to seep color out of it’s pores.  I love to capture these colors, both literal and metaphorical, whenever I can.

This is a tribute to some of the beauty I see around me on a daily basis. All photos were taken by me.

For this, I feel lucky to live here.

    Fantastic pics Mols, particularly digging the jars of pesto-looking cocktails in your hands and the three multi-coloured nut sacks of truth – what kind of vegetable / fruits are they? Looks like elongated pumpkins…

      Thanks you hot little potato! I actually put captions at the very end of the post, but! That pesto juice is actually piña+ginger+spinach yumminess that I concocted and the elongated fruits are Cacao pods that Juan brought back from the jungle today!

    Okay, life is seriously more exciting…I can only say that my husband Erik brought back food from Costco…that’s hardly the jungle 😉 Love all the colors!

      Hahaha, you’re funny Kristin. Yes, cacao & mangos “from the jungle” are definitely very unique gifts to get and although he just picked them off a tree as he passed by, there is an element of them being exquisite & precious. Honestly, it’s all relative, right? The jungle comes with the territory here – but I can tell you that if there was a Costco there in that jungle I would have definitely asked him to also pop by for a couple things 😉
