Foto Flip Friday – May Theme: “Cuenca Street Art” (Week 4)

Lo siento.  Please forgive me.  But wifi was a bit iffy on Easter Island, and I was too busy gawking at those wondrous moai this past week, to publish this 4th week’s FFF edition.  The first I’ve missed in nearly a year.


Can you spell W-o-o-H-O-O-O?

Welcome to a brand new edition of Foto Flip Friday – a selected showcase of photos dredged up from my bountiful photo archives and whittled into pretty little “flip/flop” postcards each Friday.  And to add to the fun, each month I’ll challenge myself to unearth a series of images that meet a monthly theme.

I’ve been happily tucked into my new home here on a mountain top in Ecuador for more than a year now, and from day one, among the (many) charms of this cobbled Andean town has been the multitude of colorful street art at every turn. Early on I began collecting photos of these beauties as I rounded each new turn in my wanderings around El Centro, the heart of Cuenca. I’d planned to write a post about them, but instead I suddenly thought “Why not feature some of these honeys for Foto Flip Fridays?” And thus…

May’s FFF theme is:  CUENCA STREET ART

My only dilemma with featuring postcards from so close to home is – what to scribble on the back. “Wish you were here!” springs initially to mind of course, but what then for each pair during the entire month of May? Do mouseover each photo to find out…

Simply mouseover the image and watch the *magic!)

* Well o.k. for those viewing in IE, not so much a magical “flip” as a fading change. If you want to see the flip/flop, try viewing in Chrome or Firefox.

All this month I’ve been drawing images from my bountiful collection of “Cuenca Street Art”, so check back next Friday to see the final two flip/flop postcards from the neighborhoods that I skip through daily amid the cobbled streets of Cuenca, Ecuador.

And meanwhile…

Stay tuned for a report on my adventures on EASTER ISLAND!
