Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for Pink. A delicate colour that means sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tenderness, is associated with bubble gum, flowers, babies, little girls, cotton candy, and sweetness.

AND salt!

Pink is my favourite colour.
I used to say my favourite colour was black
to be cool,
but it is pink.”

50 shades of pink

Pink is not a colour that I wear or normally buy, though I confess to having a soft-touch pink mouse attached to this laptop. Not by design, it was the only colour they had in stock. As the only girl-child in my family I was enforced to spend my childhood in a  pink room (Dawn Pink) which was quite a subtle pink if I remember correctly, but pink all the same. As a teenager I rebelled and went for purple!

Anyway, obviously the same distaste doesn’t stop me from photographing things that are pink, so here are a few of my discoveries made on my travels.
