Color Pattern Excitement

church, Calvi, Corsica
Creativity requires inspiration. I have a lifelong quest for visual excitement on travels around the globe. Often my senses are overloaded with a macro world of competing sights. When I narrow the focus to a micro view, I really find excitement! The color of this church in Calvi, Corsica, was totally unexpected, but what a delight!
