I had a fun weekend assignment in Mexico City. We took a break from shooting to visit Casa Azul, Frida Kahlo's home and now museum. They charge 60 extra pesos if you want to photograph inside her home, sin flash of course. Above a few hipstamatic shots of her inspiring home and studio.

I was there ten years ago. It was an amazing experience. One of my other favorite places in Mexico is the Museo Brady in Cuernavaca, if you ever get to go. http://bradymuseum.org/

@annalilly it has been almost 15 years since I was in Museo Brady. I immediatly thought of it when I visited Casa Azul last weekend. Nice memories. So very visually inspiring.
