Grey Around The World

budapest hungary elephant

Nobody really pays attention to grey, it’s such a dull color yet it vastly surrounds us in the form of buildings, bridges, pavement, airplanes and ships. It is an industrial color for sure, and one that could describe our present era. We tear down beautiful colorful nature to replace it with this color.

But sometimes, grey is good, like in the elephant in the photo above. Who doesn’t like elephants? And I’m actually quite fond of wearing grey clothes.

Below is a series of photos around the world with grey as the main subject:

  1. What a great theme and as always wonderful pics. My favorite? Dhobi Ghat in Mumbai. That was every family’s laundromat in India when I was in school! Visited in November 2014 and it was one of my “must visit” places as, believe it or not, I had never been to see it. But…the cabdriver dissuaded me by saying “Madam, you will not be able to handle the crowds”. So I chickened out. I always enjoy your “clicking shots” around the world.

  2. What a fun idea for a photo collection. Grey IS all around us and we hardly ever pay attention to it. I’m sure I’ll be noticing it more for the days to come, thanks to your post.

  3. Such a great idea, I usually associate grey with grey skies in the UK, which are quite frequent! But it’s so true that there are lots of beautiful grey things too 🙂 Thanks for opening my eyes. Colour posts are some of my favourite to create, they are so much fun to put together.
