“It’s a good thing that when God created the rainbow he didn’t consult a decorator or he would still be picking colors.” ~ Sam Levenson
So many of the sights we see are multicoloured, and it’s amazing to me how a seeming mishmash of random colours can looks so right together.
For example, the multicoloured blossoms in this beautiful garden at the Imperial Palace Museum garden in Beijing.
The main rose window in the Gothic cathedral of Strasbourg, looks quite impressive from the outside,
but when viewed from inside the cathedral, it’s colours are astounding.
Stained glass windows are almost always multicoloured, and these in Chichester Cathedral are no exception.
Some of you may remember this pic taken at a market in the town at the bottom of Machu Picchu, but as it’s the most multicoloured pic I have, I’m posting it again. As you can see, the dazzling colours were just too much for the stallholder, and she just had to close her eyes. 🙂
The floating market in Bangkok was also really full of vibrant colours.
Lastly, my sister’s bathroom is really brightened up after she decided to paint the blind in these multicolours.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my multicoloured pics. To see more, go to Ailsa’s post.
Love all your Collections!!
Cool what you did with the windows. And I love the vendor shots esp. the one from Macchu Picchu. Granted too, it’s awkward to take vendors pics.
So many wonderful colors! And I love the quote in the beginning. 🙂
Thanks, Inga. 🙂
Love your sister’s painting! I remember you posted a few of her artworks last year.
Thanks, Amy. Yes I did, and in this post, is another of her pics. She has been invited to represent South Africa, and will be exhibiting her paintings in Moscow, in an exhibition at the end of this week. 🙂
I love it your photos collections AD, fantastic! Colours make life more cheerful
Thanks so much for your lovely comment. 🙂
The world can be really colourful! 🙂
Yes, you’re right, Bente. Thanks for the comment. 🙂
I love seeing your multicoloured photos, especially that amazingly delicate stained glass window in Starsbourg … so unusual and wonderful!
Thanks, Christine. I’m glad you enjoyed. 🙂
How could I not love your multi-colored pictures? Your pictures are always most outstanding. Your sister is such a talented painter. That one is my favorite even though the others are certainly spectacular! 🙂
Thanks so much, dear Marsha. Yes, my sister’s art is really good. I’m so excited for her with the exhibition in Moscow at the end of this week. 🙂
Wow, in Moscow. That’s interesting! She lives in Africa, and how did she get an exhibition in Moscow? Wow!
She was chosen to represent South Africa at an exhibition. http://www.africavillage.eu/events/south-africa-in-colours-2013-moscow-russia
Wow! That’s impressive. I’ll check this out. 🙂
Love the quote 🙂

Great colourful post. Stained glass windows are hard to beat for sheer impact. Thanks
Thanks a lot. I agree with you about the windows. 🙂
Perfect interpretation for the theme. The Machu Picchu pic stands out. 🙂
Thanks, Grace. 🙂
Perfect, rich multicoloured shots 🙂
Thanks, Gilly. Glad you like them. 🙂
“when viewed from inside the cathedral, it’s colours are astounding”!
Yes, they certainly are, Frizz. 🙂
I am in awe of the gothic cathedral, even from the outside! Lovely, lovely post and photos, all of them. I also like that you are sharing your sister’s paintings with us along the way.
Thanks, Babsje. The whole cathedral is jaw-droppingly awesome. 🙂
I’m a huge fan of color….the more colorful a subject, the better. Beautiful photos depicting color 🙂 That cathedral stained glass is amazing!
Thanks so much, Ingrid. 🙂
You have good eyes seeing these beauties!
Thanks so much. 🙂

Thanks, Heather. 🙂
This post reminds me of this quote:
“Music gives color to the air of the moment.” Karl Lagerfeld
I think I’m most impressed with your sister’s artistic talents and ingenuity! I know I’m repeating myself, but can’t help but be impressed with you and your family.
Thanks again, Gunta. I love my family to bits. 🙂
Love your collection of photos from the stained glass windows to the brightly coloured stalls in Bangkok.
Thanks so much, Colline. 🙂
I love rosetta windows 🙂 You have taken us to a very colourful journey across the world in this post – you should be a Benetton girl 😉
Hehehe…..thanks, Paula. 🙂
I am planning to write an article about gothic cathedrals featuring Notre Dame of Paris soon 🙂
It’s amazing how the glass in the Gothic cathedral is so colourful from the inside but it looks so plain from the outside
Yes, it’s because of the daylight shining through. 🙂
Fantastic photos , and the colours is great. Love your sisters art work! // Maria 🙂
Thanks so much, Maria. 🙂
Tell your sister I have put her colorful hand painted shade right up there with the stain glass. What a clever idea. Beautiful pics, Sylvia. 🙂 I love the quote.
Thanks, Lynne. I’ll be sure to tell her. 🙂
Again your sister’s artwork! I love it and the colors of all the pics.
Thanks so much, Janine. 🙂
Thanks, footsy. 🙂
Multi-plied colours indeed!
Funny the way colours never ‘clash’ in a garden!
Yes it is, Col…….or in a rainbow. 🙂
Great photos! Love the markt stall, and stained glass windows are always pretty.
Thanks so much, Bevchen. 🙂
