The Colorful Architecture of Mexico


Rich colors and shrunken architectural designs found in Ajijic, Jalisco. It is an 800 year old fishing pueblo that only changes in color. Beautiful?


Driving down Calle Juarez on Mother’s day – May 10th in San Nicolas de Ibarra.  It looks like it was taken in the 1950’s in Black and White.


Same casa in color.  Love the bridge over the arroyo and the brick.  Home sweet home.


A newly painted casa on the same street.  A proud family lives here.


Horse pasture behind homes on Francisco Madero.  The white washed brick fence becomes a billboard for musical events in this sleepy pueblo.


The Chapala Railway Station built in 1920.  It is now a cultural art center.


Notice the sand pile and the screen?  All buildings made of brick and cement made up of sand. The old satellite dish will become shade over their front yard outdoor family “hangout”.  Note the rustic stick fence architecture.


The first hotel in Chapala built in 1908 facing Lake Chapala.  Mexico’s president stayed here while his casa was being built.  Hotel Niza.


The Braniff Airline family built the brick casa next to the church in the early 1900’s. On this date the Governor of Jalisco came to visit – a fiesta of balloons!


Christiana Park in Chapala used to be the golf course.  Business men from Guadalajara would ride the train into Chapala to play golf. Taken while strolling with a group of photographers who all had real fancy cameras.  My cell phone camera works for me.


The first homes in Mexico were built with adobe.  This jewel is where a sweet, elderly Madre greets her grand children.   Abuela, que Bueno!


One man’s dream became a “Fixer Upper”.  Nothing wasted.


The fence has peep windows for the owner to check his horses.  This picture was taken on May 10, 2017 which is Mother’s day in Mexico.  A Momma Mare and her babe!
