White Around The World

In honor of the record low temperatures and masses of white snow that the US East Coast has been getting, I present to you a photo collection of the color white around the world from across my travels.

The color of fresh snow and milk, white, can emanate a very peaceful feeling often representing light rather than darkness, purity and cleanliness.

I don’t know about you but some of my favorite simple pleasures in life are freshly clean bed sheets, and milk and cookies. Both featuring the color white or its depiction.

Please enjoy these photos of white places and things I’ve captured from around the globe:

  3. What a collection Mani. I kept going through saying ” Oh I like that one best”. Loving that coconut ice cream especially positioned right after snow. The baby camel photo wins for me. Oh my goodness what a capture.

    1. Oh! That’s interesting. I considered leaving the camel photo out because the color white wasn’t necessarily the focus nor the main color of that photo, but I thought the white camel was unique and cute too 🙂 Thanks Sue!

    I loved the Russian buildings because of the contrast. I really like the Budapest photo and the baby camels and the car in India was really cool too. Oh and the white fuzzy plant is called Dusty Miller (I worked in a wholesale greenhouse/nursery) 🙂
