Foto Flip Friday – May Theme: “Cuenca Street Art” (Week 5)

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…

First up this week, we have a stunning abstract in black and white:

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.
And finally, to top off this month of Cuenca Street Art – this one pretty much sums up my feelings about my new home here in Ecuador:

Th-th-that’s a wrap for “Cuenca Street Art”!

Tune in next Friday to see what new Foto Flip theme I’ve cooked up for June.
