Photo Friday: Summer Colors

Day 150 – December 19, 2011

From Photo Friday, the theme this week for their weekly photo submission event is “summer colors“.

Normally, living as I once did in the United States, summer means the months of June, July, and August. However, residing here in the Southern Hemisphere now means that summer (or verano for those of you with a handle of the Spanish language) encompasses the months of December, January, and February.

This also means that Christmas falls during the summer, which means that for this theme from Photo Friday, I can offer up this colorful Nativity Scene seen in the Inka Market.

Just in case you’re wondering, like I was, where the baby is in this scene, I was told by locals who know these things that owners of Nativity scenes do not place the baby Jesus in its cradle until the 24th of December.
