White Door with Knocker, Mazatlan

White Door with Knocker, Mazatlan

The light on the Pacific coast of Mexico is different from that of the Atlantic coast or that of the Gulf of Mexico. Hard to describe, I would say it was a soft or smooth light with crisp details in colors. This door, in Mazatlan, was illuminated by the early morning sun, which was so penetrating and bright that some details just disappeared, and the brass hand door knocker, handle and mail slot stood out in stark contrast to the white surface and the dappled shadows.
