Thursday’s Special: Think Pink
October being the Breast Cancer Awareness Month had something to do with my choice of today’s photo challenge theme: THINK PINK. If you’d like to join me in this challenge, keep in mind that it does not need to be a pink ribbon, but any pink-coloured subject. Let’s make this a happy and bright post…
I did not have to go far to find me some pink. This pink delight was practically on my doorstep.
“A woman should be pink and cuddly for a man”. (Audrey Hepburn) Does the same go for a car too? 😀
It’s not every day that you see a car on a roof, much less a pink one.
Interesting facts about colour PINK:
it represents caring, compassion and love
it is youthfull, fun and exciting
it is associated with romance and happiness
In Japan, the color pink has a masculine association. The annual spring blooming of the pink-blossomed cherry trees (the Sakura) is said to represent the young Japanese warriors who fell in battle in the prime of life (the Samurai).
Jaipur City is a foremost tourist attraction in India because of its superlative forts, grandiose palaces, vivacious temples, multicolored bazaars, pulsating streets, and its distinguished pink color to which the city owes its oft-used name “The Pink City”.
The Chinese had not recognized the color pink until they had contact with Western culture and the Chinese word for pink translates as “foreign color.”
Marrakesh is another city associated with the color pink. It is sometimes referred to as the “Rose City” because of its salmon-pink colored buildings and the red clay of its terrain.
