Photos of the Week: A Dab of Color

Photos of the Week: A Dab of Color Photo

Posted on November 30, 2010 in Photos

As any good photographer can tell you, art is everywhere. There isn’t a city on the planet without a colorful mural or an ancient statue hidden away in its back alleys and darkened alcoves. Luckily for IgoUgo, two of our members, akakd and ideagirl, have a knack for seeing everyday craftsmanship wherever they go. Our Photos of the Week are symptoms of creative minds.

The Museu do Bonde -- better known as the Tram Museum to English speakers -- lets visitors to Rio take a look at the city’s retired streetcars. Before akakd went into the museum, she snapped a photo of the colorful patterns adorning the wireframe door. If you look closely, you can see a tiny tram climbing up the border at the top.

When Ideagirl wanted a sunny vacation, she went to Hawaii, easily one of the best places in the world to relax with a book and a daiquiri. While there, she paid a visit to a surf shop, where she managed to capture a line of surfboards covered with groovy designs. Note how you can see a faintly-lit painting in the corner of the open window.
