Travel/Photography #Purpleflowers Posted on August 8, 2015 by alexraphael Taken at a plants fair in Colima, Mexico that featured a wide array of tropical flowers. Colima is near the Pacific Coast and has wonderful beaches. AdvertisementShare this:TwitterFacebookPinterestTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related
Beautiful. I’m from Mexico, live here, but have never been to Colima.
Colima is very nice. What part of Mexico are you from?
Tijuana, which doesn’t have Colima’s natural beauty but it definitely has its own unique charm.
I went a few times as a child as I have family there. I’ll always have a soft spot for it too 🙂
Oh, that’s so cool. I bet you’ve seen more of Mexico than I have! Haha
I’ve been to a few places like Guadalajara, Villahermosa and the DF. I’ve also seen the beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo and Acapulco, as well as one or two of the smaller towns. But there is so much to see and it’s important to spend time with family. Do you tend to prefer visiting small towns or cities?
I like both but tend to visit cities. Was actually in Guadalajara (where my dad is from) and a few other parts of Jalisco, including Puerto Vallarta, last year. Also been to Veracruz and Boca del Río (in Veracruz), Mérida and Progreso (Yucatán), Obregón and Hermosillo (Sonora), Cancún, Mazatlán, Monterrey and DF.
A nice mix. Guadalajara has a lovely climate so sure you had a great time. Do you go to San Diego often?
Yeah, it was a very fun trip. And I go over to SD about once a month
Gorgeous. I love purple & green together especially in nature! Where else have you traveled?
I wish I saw them more often! Quite a few places. I’ve seen a lot of Europe and Mexico and the United States. Croatia and Las Vegas are next on the list, and I’d really like to see Asia.
Croatia is on my list too but I’m not sure when I’ll get there. You’re in the UK right?
I am yeah. I’m going to Ireland later this year for the first time. Technically that counts as abroad of course!
Hooray! That’s my favorite place. It totally counts!=)
Nature sure is wonderful at times 🙂
They are an exquisite mix 🙂
Have a great weekend Abbi 🙂
With your amazing cooking and baking I can’t see how you won’t!
I love the picture!! Flowers are such an interesting subject to take photos of, at a glance they seem simple and obviously beautiful but once you really examine them the interrogate details of each and every flower pedal that seems to be part of a greater pattern makes you wonder… how can anything in life be random? when there is clearly a design displayed in nature.
What a lovely and poetic way of looking at it. Please pretend I send you these to prove your point 😉 https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2014/01/25/travel-snapshot-amsterdam-holland-4/
