When I think of colours around the world, I usually think of bright and vibrant colours.  But today, I am sharing a more subtle colour.  Here are my white travel photos from around the world.

White is a colour that is associated with purity, innocence, cleanliness and new beginnings.  White usually has positive connotations, but too much of it can create a feeling of emptiness and loneliness, as well as sometimes detachment.  However, in some cultures white symbolises death and mourning.

  1. Lovely photos! 🙂 Particularly like the empanadas poking out of the white bag!! Really inspiring to notice how beautiful white can be in my photos too… I also think of the Bolivian salt flats, and the white baby llamas in Peru and snow/ice on the mountains around Franz Josef, New Zealand. Thanks for making me think outside of my colourful box.

  2. This photo series is so much fun, it looks like a great reason to go through all your old travel photos. I’m so jealous you got to visit the Salt Flats, it’s on my bucket list.

  3. This is such a cool series of posts. I love the idea. Makes me want to reorganize my photos by color. I love snow-capped mountains. That is my favorite “white” image.

  4. The salt flats are so other-worldly! I love all the different kinds of subjects in your pictures. They’re all beautiful! And now I want a hot chocolate with marshmallows in…

  5. What an excellent collection of photos! Some of them would not make me think about the color white and I think that is why I find the post so interesting. Love your attention to detail.

  6. This is so fun! I remember seeing at least one of your other color posts and I was inspired! I was began a series of red photos and then never finished it. I just love how different all the photos are with the same color theme!

  7. I love the concept of your color posts – so fun to get a whirlwind tour of places you’ve been via a color. That first one of the salt flats in Bolivia is incredible! I dream of going there one day. The Argentinian mountains are gorgeous as well – great shots as always!
