Lorinda Tisdell relocated from the US to the picturesque town of Ajijic in Mexico, where she enjoys taking pictures of the brightly painted and tiled buildings and in the surrounding villages and towns. She matches up her pictures with delightful quotes on her Instagram page @lorindatisdellimages. We asked her to create a selection for Mosaic & Glass readers. There are some extra images here to what’s in the printed version of the magazine – enjoy!
