a white corner view

White is the colour (of my true love's hair.) (?)
Not quite yet but here's some phone pics I quickly snapped this w-end at an apartment currently
being renovated. Plenty of white to find and admire. Pretty much a blank canvas with all tonalities of white shown in all its glory. But... white. What IS white? Is there pure white? Does it actually exist?
I ramble. Here:

I had to add this next one. Not totally white, but totally cool. Coffee break at the "building site".



And... straight from the horse's mouth (no offence, J) so as not to miss anyone, here's more corner views.

  1. I love your white - so clean and beautiful!

    I am going to have to bookmark your blog to come back for a good look - I was in Japan earlier this year, accompanied by a little crocheted ninja who became the star of many a photo - in a Where's Wally sort of way....hidden in corners.....

  30. i just had the best time imagining little ninja you wandering around that apartment finding bits and pieces of white. isn't that the best thing about prompts? they get us thinking about ordinary environments in totally new ways........

  37. @ ida: so am I, to be honest ;)
    I nearly buggered my phone yesterday actually. I accidentally dropped it while cycling (and taking pics at the same time, of course) but, luckily, no car was coming at the time... otherwise it would have been rip phone and rip "telephotony")
    @ c.t.: yes, first three are sunbeams reflected on a wall
    @ jgy: you just gave me an idea... let's see whether I can create a negative image of the ninja so that it/she appears white.
    raaaa watch this space.
    @ adrienne: thx, it was late yesterday and I reckon I was a bit tired and missed the link (which you so clearly had there on the first line! I'm so rubbish ;)
