Phodographer Patti Hughes in Zunil, Guatemala, July 2009
Patti Hughes (of Natural Life) and co-phodographer Allison Hillis just returned from Guatemala. “Zunil was the most colorful village we stumbled across. The people here are bolder because they are weaving and wearing whatever colorful combination they can come up with, while most villagers wear only traditional colors.”
Patti exhorts everyone to get involved saying ‘It’s the most rewarding experience to hand a child a photograph of themselves. Take and Give photography!’
Best Foto of the Week!
