Mexico: Simplicity

Kitchen utensils on wall of mud home in Mexico

The first thing I saw when I woke up in the luxury hotel was the fire alarm on the ceiling. My first, sleepy, thought was “What a shame they don’t have these in the villages of stick and mud houses we had just been in.” We are so wired to think we “need” so much.

What could be more simple than these utensils hanging against the mud wall of a kitchen.

  3. Once again the simplicity of one of your photographs touches me with such intensity it reminds me of one of the reasons I fell in love with your passion of capturing life with your camera so long ago. Really miss being caught up in that passion learning something new every step of the way. It’s nice to experience it again.
