Maisons Blanches

"White...is not a mere absence of colour; it is a
shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as
definite as black...God paints in many colours; but
He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said
so gaudily, as when He paints in white."
                     ~G. K. Chesterton

   I happened upon the most beautiful blog the other day. I spent half an hour just perusing through hundreds of serene and elegant pictures all featuring white. The blog is called Maisons Blanches and it is definitely worth a few quiet moments spent scrolling through the seemingly endless pages of beautiful photos. I don't know how it's creator found so many white photos! She also has a wonderful second blog called Colour Your World which is, as the title suggests, brimming with colors! Here is a small sampling of Maisons Blanche - you will definitely want to have a look for yourself though. I have probably just ensured that a great many of you will spend at least a few hours on the computer! Have fun!
