All That Is White

14

With the theme of this week’s #FriFotos being “white,” I had quite a bit to choose from — but I didn’t want to include snow, or daisies, or any more beautiful shots of White Sands National Monument in New Mexico (I use those far too often).  A different kind of white was what I wanted to take center stage this week.

Here are my favorite pics of non-traditional white around the world:

The Moorish Albayzin neighborhood of Granada, Spain.

And whitewashed Granada as a whole, as seen from the Allhambra.

Sailboats in the tranquil harbor in Reykjavik, Iceland.

And, much higher in the air, climbing through the Alps in Innsbruck, Austria.  Still can’t believe we climbed down from that high.  My knees hurt for days.

Don’t let the white touch the ground!  In Salem, Massachusetts.  That’s me on the bottom right.

My favorite black and white pic, ever — the chef at Casa Artusi in Forlimpopoli, Emilia-Romagna, Italy.

My first ever white party, in Kuta, Indonesia!  God, I love the Balinese.  These girls are wonderful.

And finally, a close-up of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, Italy.

Which photo is your favorite?

    That picture of Austria is stunning. I’ve been doing a lot of trekking in South America. It’s painful when it’s happening, but I only look back on it with fond memories! The Andes are incredible 🙂

  2. Nice to see that you are “back in the saddle” again.

    They are all really nice! My fab has to be the B&W of the Italian chef. I could have submitted some from Milos while I’m here.

    Nice shots! My favorite has to be the one of the Albayzin… I spent some time there last summer and I thought the neighborhood had a certain unique charm. Your photo really makes me miss it!

    Great pictures, hard to pick a favorite, but I really like the sailboats in Reykjavik. My partiality to sailing might have something to do with it. 😉

    The alps pic is stunning! You climbed down? What mode of transportation did you use to climb up the alps?

  11. I like the look of the white party in Kuta. It reminds me of New Years Eve in Rio de Janeiro where EVERYONE wears white to the beach. 😀

  12. Love the Austrian Alps picture. Nice work.

  13. Great photos! I love the one from Innsbruck, Austria… I seriously can’t believe you were that high in the clouds, wow!
