Travel Theme: Silver

Silver — like a metaphor — is rather tricky. Sometimes it’s crystal clear and other times it’s a bit fuzzy as it comes in many shades. At times one has to look really hard to recognize it.

The silver colour can be dazzling but sometimes it’s difficult to identify whether it’s platinum or silver.

Sometimes it takes someone / something else to point it out to us before we realise…ah! that is silver indeed.

If you can see silver in this photo, then you have an excellent eyesight. But if you place your fingers there, they will freeze.

Courtesy is a silver lining around dark clouds of civilization; it is the best part of refinement and in many ways, an art of heroic beauty…”

Hope your day is as bright as silver.

  1. Frostbitten birch trees can be quite silvery – very well captured photos for the theme – even I more like being number one than 2nd – so I like silver more than gold… :-) :-)

  2. Beautiful photos. I just discovered that silver is one of my favorite colors. I work as digital creator of landscapes for a new comic, colors are kinda my job …:)

  3. Wow, lovely photos. I found a new source of ‘natural silver’ the other day. Freshly picked plums with their waxy coat intact, when put in water, shine with a beautiful silver sheen in natural light.
