Pink Around The World

When I decided to go through my photo archives to look for pink, I was quite surprised at the amount I found. I thought it would be a rare color but it was more abundant than some of the other common colors I’ve done a photo series about.

The color pink can be associated with many things from innocence and the feminine to charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, and the romantic. Those are pretty bright and positive characteristics. I was even surprised to see how much I wear pink! I am not a girly girl and wouldn’t directly prefer pink clothing but apparently I own quite a few pink garments.

From India, Mexico, the Pacific Northwest and more, I present to you the color pink around the world:
