The Nassau Report: The Colours of Nassau

July 12th, 2011

Colours of Nassau, Bahamas

One of the things I love about travelling is being able to take in the colours, structures, and patterns of the places I go. Every new spot has its own unique visual flavour, and it’s a thrill to observe even the small things, such as the patterns in fences and paving. To me, the most visually striking aspect of Nassau is the palette of bright colours from the flowers and buildings, combined with the clear blues of the ocean and sky.

Here are a few shots from my home-away-from-home (thanks, T&R!):

Climbing flowering vines line the fences:

Others form themselves into trees and climb tall into the sky…

…leaving their spent petals at the edges of white curbs.

Docked cruise ships and bright buildings mingle in the touristy downtown strip:

What do you like to look at when you go travelling?

    I love to look at the people; take in the obvious and subtle differences between dress and demeanor, absorb as much culture as I can, and just appreciate what is usually a much different pace than my daily life.

    Your blog has made me think about an subject from another angle. This is completely rare when I change my conception about such subjects but it looks that you’ve done it. The day has started with something new! Thank you!
