Color your world – Grey

DSC09955

A collection of ancient Pueblo pottery shards (or sherds, if you prefer) that were scattered around the ruins of an ancient Pueblo village in Northern New Mexico. The paint might be finely ground mineral pigments – frequently used where the vegetation is sparse; further south black paint can be made by boiling down the shrub called Bee Brush.

After admiring a shard, we are urged to replace it just where we found it, but people cannot resist displaying their finds in a cluster.

Just take photos; just leave footprints.
