Looking through my photos for something pink for this week’s Travel Theme, I realized that apart from flowers, there aren’t as many pink things in my stash of photos as most other colors.  However, one of my favorite photos from our 2011 trip to Provence is replete with pinks, so I offer it for your enjoyment.  If you’d like to see more travel photos, tomorrow I’ll be participating in the Phoneography Challenge (and my entries will feature travel), so feel free to stop back in, especially if you take photos by non-traditional means, such as with phones or an iPad, in which case, you might like to participate.

    Janet – love this shot – and actually – you did sneak some flowers in = well some potted ones in the stone and pot “barrier fence” that is set up in front of this fun “pinkishy” house

    such an interesting feel – (door and shutters) and I like the hint of light on that tall flowering shrub (and I believe that those flowers have a hint of pink too 😉
    anyhow, I like the patches of stone in the alley on the left – and how it plays with the front stones to the right front….which then seems to bring the eye up to the windows (mine at least)

    • True, there’s some pink in the flowers, but I think the house takes the pink cake. I’m glad you liked this so much. It’s one of my favorites. The house just makes me feel happy.


      • Y. Prior says:

        yeah – I agree – the house takes the cake – and I only saw the pinkish flowers on the third look and so that was just a nice bonus –
        and I also “just” noticed that sealed off window on the 3rd floor – hmmmm –

      • I didn’t hear any screams or scary noises. 🙂

    • Y. Prior says:

      haha – well thanks for the reply – and I love this house too – and the stone work and pinkish hue and pink door/shutters – well it makes me feel happy too – and it is perfect for the theme – and I am glad I had a chance to check it out.

  2. What a beautiful shade of pink on this house, it is so delicate and rosy! Great choice for Pink. 🙂

    • Lisa, I’ll see you tomorrow (or thereabouts.) Terrible about the mud slide. I hope that was nowhere near you.


      • It is north of me and so far I don’t know anyone directly in it’s path but if the slide causes a flood that destroys the bridges over the river the major Interstate will have to close and detour. It is so sad…

    so very pink, it looks inviting to me 🙂

  4. Now, that’s pink.

    Years ago, there was a house about five miles from where my grandmother lived that was half baby blue and half Pepto-Bismol pink. One end wall and the front was painted pink; the opposite end wall and the back, what you could see of it, was blue. The owner had even covered the roof with planks and painted one slope blue and the other pink (I don’t know if this touch would get past the fire code today!) Goofiest-looking building I ever saw.

    Now that is pink overload and I love it…

    So very pretty! Rather unusual too isn’t it? I have only seen houses with blue shutters in Provence! 🙂

    Was just going to say .. this must be taken in France. Not a pink girl, but I love pink houses … in the right environment like France and Ireland. Love image.
