Truly, the best inspiration for color is found from nature. And although we've mucked around with this beauty, threatened it, tried to manipulate it and don't appreciate what's around us, there are times when nature stands out and says... look at me!
On an evening drive in Marathon, where the fields are as green as one can imagine in Greece in mid-July, the local vegetable stand didn't have to work to hard to convince me to stop. Some stares from an old local, standing with his worry beads off to the side as I photographed... perhaps he'll have a new appreciation for the day-to-day beauty we often speed past. Although I get the feeling he knows.
