While bright colours are great at attracting attention, gentle neutrals allow the eye to linger over details. I had a look through my photos for shots that contained predominantly neutral colours and was surprised to find quite a few, like this Hogwarts-worthy photo of rooftops in Edinburgh…
…or a moisture-laden mushroom on a hot and humid hike in the North Cascades.
Lots of luscious neutral tones at Rome’s Bocca della Verita…
…and here too on an autumnal day in New York’s Battery Park.
Last but not least, my sneaky reason for coming up with this week’s theme in the first place, a photo of this sweet little bundle of love and mischief who strayed into my life and has now become a fast friend and willing travel buddy. Her name is Scruffy and she has me wrapped around her little paw.
So if you fancy laying off bright colours this week, break out some neutral tones and create your own version of this week’s travel theme. If you would like to join in the weekly travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Neutral
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
- Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.
Now I’m going to try to catch up with everyone’s camping entries from last week, some great stories so far. 🙂
Who can be wise, amazed, temperate and furious,
Loyal and neutral, in a moment? No man. – Shakespeare
Nature is neutral. Man has wrested from nature the power to make the world a desert or make the deserts bloom. There is no evil in the atom; only in men’s souls. – Adlai E Stevenson
