The Use Of Color In Guanajuato, Guanajuato

If you are looking for ideas on selecting color
 there is no place quite like Guanajuato in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico.

(Please Note: This is a rewrite of the post COLOR,
from 2/13/10.)

There is nothing stopping people here from using of lots of color...

...and the whole city is full of it.

I have very little concept of color 
and in a pinch I will always fall back on white...

...but visiting a place like Guanajuato makes me realize 
what one can do to liven up a space.

The back alleys, of which there are many here, are colorful.

And even the taggers want to get in on the act.

Lonely gringo boy walking the colorful streets.

In some cities, such as Patzcuaro, Michoacan, everthing is painted the same color...

...but certainly not here.

If you ever need some inspiration picking out color
 Guanajuato would be well worth a trip.
