White is my favorite color. I love to wear white and I am surrounded by white in my house. My kitchen has white cabinets, my girls bedroom has white furniture. I love white frames for my colorful pictures. White bedding, white window treatments. It is no surprise that The voices of color – White Kit is my favorite one in the collection:
and the quick pages:
White is a color, the perception which is evoked by light that stimulates all three types of color sensitive cone cells in the human eye in nearly equal amounts and with high brightness compared to the surroundings. A white visual stimulation will be void of hue and grayness.
White light can be generated in many ways. The sun is such a source, electric incandescence is another. Modern light sources are fluorescent lamps and light-emitting diodes. An object that does not alter the color of light reflected from its surface will appear white, compared to the surroundings, unless it has very high specular reflection.
Since white objects such as clouds, snow and flowers appear often in nature, human culture has many references to white, often related to purity and cleanness. The high contrast between white and black is used to represent opposites. In some cultures, like Chinese, white is considered to be a color that represents death. On the other hand in many cultures white represents purity, freedom, and hygenic purity.
I can not resist to share some white pictures of mine:
My little girl in her room.
I took this picture 5 years ago in the botanical garden in Marburg with my first digital camera.
Some white teddies from my girls liying in Maisa’s bed.
And some pictures I wish were mine 😉
I wish I was there and have taken this picture! Simply White Sands by Leviathor on Flickr.
