Colour My World – Grey

Grey. That most neutral of colours. Detached, disengaged, doubtful.

Neither white nor black. Day nor night. The morning mist. The shadowy veil of twilight. The dismal pall of winter fog. The ghostly whispers of memories. The colour of wisdom and truth. Of life.

Presenting a gallery of greys from around the world.

  1. But your grays all have color! They are imbued with color, they are not GRAY in the manner we usually speak of it. They are mysterious or solid or backgrounds to color or reflectors of color. Anything but dull, anything but drab or boring. The photo of Varanasi knocks me out.

    1. Dawn on the Ganges is special Judith. Even when the sun is obscured by clouds like in that photo. But to me grey is always beautiful.

  2. What delicious greys these are, Madhu! Some of them barely qualify 🙂 🙂 I especially love that head, followed by the deer in the mist. Stunning! 🙂
    Are you caught up yet? It’s never ending, isn’t it? Any plans afoot for Christmas?

    1. Never ending Jo! Nothing much happening in December apart from visits with family in Bangalore. We are planning a short break with friends mid Jan. Still debating the destination 🙂 Will you be home for Christmas?

  3. Really great post Madhu. Isn’t it interesting that sometimes the most subdued thing can in the right situation be the most impressive. Thank you for sharing it. Take care. -Max-
