Travel Theme: Neutral

Many of my favourite travel photos are those with vibrant blue skies, tempting foods or lush gardens. A neutral colour palette makes me appreciate other aspects of the subject, like the texture of the shell on this African spurred tortoise or the startled expression on this street performer in Florence.

Neutrals can shimmer with the early morning light or soften under an overcast sky.

And neutrals allow the geometric shapes and patterns used in architecture to really stand out.
