Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Multicoloured


“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. πŸ™‚

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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! πŸ™‚

  3. Just beautiful Sylvia. As usual my favourite is your sister’s painting. It’s gorgeous and I love the colours! Thanks for sharing hon. πŸ˜€ *hugs*

  4. 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.

  5. I’m a huge fan of color….the more colorful a subject, the better. Beautiful photos depicting color πŸ™‚ That cathedral stained glass is amazing!

  6. 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.

  7. I love rosetta windows πŸ™‚ You have taken us to a very colourful journey across the world in this post – you should be a Benetton girl πŸ˜‰

  8. 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. πŸ™‚ I love the quote.
