Oh well. I had fun looking through my old digital files. The object of the game was to select a photo from one's archives that best captures each of the following colors: Blue, Green, Yellow, White and Red. Here are my picks:
Royal Blue Delft is the exquisite, hand-painted, trademark porcelain of the Netherlands, crafted exclusively in the small town of Delft for over three and a half centuries. Traditional designs are pastoral Dutch scenes such as windmills, sailing ships, and tulips. We toured the oldest Delftware factory in the summer of 2010 and were fascinated by the history and technique of this ceramic art. In the photo above, one can see the before and after of a vase. The artists use black paint containing cobalt oxide to paint their design, which then turns blue during firing. By adding more or less water, the craftsmen determine the final color and shade of blue.
Gouda cheese is for sale (and sampling!) every Thursday morning at the cheese market in Gouda, the Netherlands!
This might perhaps be my favorite picture taken in Spain last summer. It's just a nameless narrow alleyway in the precious white hill town of Vejer in Andalusia.
The only thing missing here is a red double-decker bus! London is one of the best places to take young childen in Europe - there's so much to see and do!
