Travel theme: Colourful

We’re drawn to color — unabashedly bold colors, mixtures of mix-and-match colors, or just strong singular monotones.  So snapping photos dominated by colorful combinations has become as much a part of traveling and sightseeing as people-watching, which can be colorful in and of itself.

    Great captures – all of them make you smile 😊Those baskets look really cool.

    • Thanks, Lynda, for the kind words. Those baskets, made of telephone wire, were colorful and geometric. Can’t imagine that the wire wouldn’t cut into the maker’s hands as it’s tugged into shape. We brought home a few, but you probably guessed that!!

  4. A fun way to address the subject. And men in tutus should be colorful. I am reminded of the old statement, “If you are going to jump, dive!” 🙂 –Curt
