Colorful Around The World

I love colors! Is that a really stupid thing to say? Would anybody say, “I don’t like colors”? Colorful things make me happy. As a kid, I used to love dressing up in mismatched bright colored clothes. My mom just allowed me to do my own thing. My oil paintings are also known to be pretty colorful.

Across my travels, I have found Mexico and India to be the most colorful countries. But you can find an array of vibrant, and colorful things and places all around the world.

Enjoy this photo series!
