Houston’s Discovery Green, a lush greenspace located in the heart of Downtown, offers numerous art installations throughout the year. The one that particularly caught my eye was the latest: Los Trompos or ‘Spinning Tops’ – a colorful interactive space that resembles the familiar children’s toy. It was created by Mexico City designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena and was inspired by nature and traditional Latin American design, architecture and folk art.
Earlier this week, I grabbed Sofia for an early morning shoot there. I chose to wear all black because I wanted to show the contrast with the vibrant art.
