I recently wrote about the seduction of color and how I've been shooting a lot more color images than black and white. I put the blame on the digital camera and the fact that when I shoot with digital I see the image first in color. But then I read an article in the Washington Post about a group of artist who came to San Miguel to paint. As I read their descriptions of the colors of San Miguel and about the luminous light they found, I found justification in my seduction.
From Susan Harb's description of San Miguel in the article perhaps you will be able to see why for so many people, it is love at first sight. We have friends here who came to visit for a week and bought a house before they left town. Definitely, wild, passionate, reckless abandoned love at first sight.
