Flickr Favorites Tuesday: Azul


Flickr Favorites Tuesday: Azul
Originally uploaded by Marian Florcita

Azul:Blue.

Where I come from, in Argentina, people like painting their houses in bright colors. I could voice different theories such as "that helps bright up your city in winter when everything is dark and grey", "it's a way to show your individuality/creativity", "you are just showing off" .... :)
I don't know. What I do think is that -at least here in The Netherlands- life would be so much brighter in the long months of winter if there was some color on the streets other than the brown of bricks and the grey of the sky.
So I looked around in Flickr for some blue houses (the one on the top left corner, is Frida Khalo's "La casa azul"). And these were my favorites.

All the credit to the photographers who took these pictures. If you want to see the photos larger in with credits, click on the mosaic.

Remember that DaWanda has a discount week which I am joining. So from today until Sunday, there will be a 15% discount on all shops were you haven't purchased before. If you haven't shoped at Florcita now is the time!

Hola Mariana
que bonita la casa Azul.
Me encanta el color and I agree, that it would be much better to have some colorful houses around when the sky is grey and the weather miserable.
I am in Italy at the moment,... it is raining and i am dreaming of the sunsshine of spain!
abrazos

Beautiful blue! I love blues! In China we have black and white houses. Very serene like a black ink Chinese paintings. Yours are more passionate, just like the people there. :-)
