I don't like the word, 'awesome, ' as it's used so much but it really fits this picture...love that rich black hair on the women and how it sets off those incredibly rich colors on their garments. Did you buy any such things when you were there?

JM said...

@Lowell: Oh yes! It's impossible to resist, even for me who always want to travel light! :-)))

Gorgeous shot! I love the red socks on the little child. Guatemalan textiles are so rich and gorgeous.

I feel positively drab! I really love the colors, patterns and those stitched flowers. It's funny, but I finally noticed the little red socks and then realized that the woman on the right was carrying a small child. What an added bonus!

Quite irresistibly beautiful colours and workmanship. I could no more resist buying them than fly. These people never get properly compensate for the amount of work that goes into their weaving.
