World Colours – Orange
Here we are with June’s World Colours post. A tricky one for me, but here are some of my picks. By the way, did you know that the colour takes its name from the fruit and not the other way around?
World Colours: Orange
While we’re on the subject of cars…
Onwards to a different place…
Miffy was created in the Netherlands, and that country’s reigning monarch comes from the House of Orange-Nassau.
I know that this is the colour of patinated bronze, but it’s a memorial to the Orange Alternative, an 80’s Polish movement that used absurdity and satire to ridicule and undermine the Communist regime. For instance, wherever the police painted over anti-Communist graffiti, members would paint a gnome over the patch.
World Colors (or World Colours) is a little travel photography project which Naomi at Box 53b and Anne at Part Time Traveller started. Anyone is welcome to join in at any point, and even make backdated posts, by sharing their favourite photos based on the theme colour of the month. Just add the hashtag #worldcolors on Instagram, Pinterest or your blog.
There is also a Twitter account that tracks and retweets posts by various participants, and you can follow it at @WC_Project. Follow them for updates on the next theme colour!
