Photo: Theme Day -- Chimneys

Today's Daily Photo theme is Chimneys, so I am showing a Southwestern interpretation of the theme with this photo of chimeas.  These are pottery used like little outdoor fireplaces.

This row of chimeas was for sale at the Mexican market in Guadalupe, a small town comprised of Native Americans and Latinos located just south of Tempe, which is just south of Scottsdale.  Guadalupe was settled by Yaqui Indians who fled oppression in their homeland of Sonora, Mexico around 1900.  They have maintained their culture and have many religious celebrations.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted
at Viva la Voyage!  This week we are showing some more photos from my recent raft trip through the Grand Canyon.

The regular link for other Daily Photo bloggers' interpretations of Theme Day, which is in the paragraph below, is temporarily not working.  In the meantime,here is a link to a temporary website that shows each of the Theme Day posts for the theme of Chimneys.  Also you can check our group on Facebook)

Your hubby had a creative "chimney" picture, but I think you've outdone him. I like these things. We had one on our pool patio at our old Ocala house. The grandkids used it in the winter time to stay warm at night and to cook marshmallows!

I agree with the first sentence of Lowell's comment above.

Excellent take on the theme Julie, they almost look like a row of clowns that you see in a showgrounds where you try to get the ball in the mouth to win a prize.

An Arizonan chimney collection! Very nice.

Great idea, chimeas are popular in the UK for those cold summer evenings!
