Day Six: Sound and Color


You may have noticed that I’m really into black and white photography lately. Well, today I’m throwing in a splash of color. Mexico City is a city of bright colors, from houses to foods, flowers and trees. It’s incredibly colorful. Here is a sampling.

I’ve decided to include some sound samples here as well, since I love the song “Sound and Color” by Alabama Shakes. Actually, Mexico City is one of the quietest cities I know. People don’t talk much in subways, cars don’t frequently honk, everyone uses a calm tone when communicating. Here are some of the sounds I have heard.

    I do think of Mexico as color and music and especially like the last one- the walk through- sounded like the lone trumpeter

      It’s quite nice, and occasionally annoying when you hear the same tune over and over.
