Colour Everywhere


Our houses in the countryside are simple (unless they are ridiculously ornate...but that's another story) and people like to use colour as an accent. White turns brown from the sand and dust rather quickly, but the yellow/beige that many people like weathers well. This contrasts beautifully with the red/orange of the poinciana tree that looks out over the wall.

Such a bright, cheerful color!
I think I know what you mean about very simple or ridiculously ornate. We have the same phenomenon in the provinces just outside Manila.

Yes. The yellow in that setting imparts a feeling of tranquility.

I can see how this contrast works there. I must take some getting used to. The sand rules every aspect of life -- I would guess.

It is stunning the way color pops out throughout the countryside.
