Travel Theme: Silver

January 20, 2014

It’s time for another weekly Travel Theme!  This week, the theme is Silver, and it was actually a bit of a challenge to find the photos to match.  It turns out that I gravitate toward color in life and in my photography.  But not to worry – I managed to find some great shots featuring the lovely metallic.

Like these shots of Chicago’s skyline reflected in “The Bean.”

And the trippy underside of the sculpture:

In keeping with the sculpture theme, I loved this bike along Ft. Lauderdale Beach with the slogan, “Green Your Routine.”

And this artwork in downtown Grand Junction, Colorado.  I’m almost positive that the metal was silver but it looks a little golden due to the setting sun.

It’s not traditional art, but this beautiful bridge and the river flowing beneath it gleamed silvery-bronze during a misty morning run in Durango.

And the sky was feeling quite moody and artistic during a walk I took through rural Paonia, CO.

Traveling farther afield, the most amazing vacation of my life (to this point at least), took place aboard the Silver Spirit cruise ship.

And while we were blessed with gorgeous, sunny weather during the cruise, I did capture this shot of the sea surrounding Santorini glimmering silver at dusk.

And because I just couldn’t help myself, I had to include a couple of shots of the silvery Christmas light displays at Christmas Town in Williamsburg, VA.

So those are my most silvery sights over the last year or so.  Tell me, are there any places you’ve visited that you associate with a particular color?

    Great minds think alike, Lauren, I used The bean, too!
