Drop Your Buckets

That's an expression I first heard as a Vassar freshman, way back when.

I was with a group of students protesting the school's investments in companies that did business with in Apartheid-era South Africa. Vassar's Board of Trustees agreed to meet with us, and the board's sole African-American member told the protestors to 'drop their buckets,' and work on improving race relations right there at Vassar.

Whatever the merits of this viewpoint, the expression stuck with me... Drop your buckets. Drop your buckets... That has nothing whatsoever to do with the Four Seasons Hotel in Mexico City, where I photographed these paint buckets and landscape shots last summer...


Night falls on Mexico City....
