Color Story : Candy

Hello Readers,

Amidst all the hullabloo about the color of that blue-black or white-gold dress, I introduce a new feature on my blog called ‘Color Stories’! I’m sharing snapshots of my travels, tied together by color. Why this post is called ‘Candy’, you ask? Check out Ingrid Sundberg‘s post about the Color Thesaurus, that’s why! Hope you will enjoy browsing through my travel world, as I do when I revisit memories locked in my albums 🙂

Photo Challenge: Yellow

As The Daily Post very wisely noted, the festivals around this time of the year tend to nearly ignore the color yellow. So here’s a round-up of some bright splashes of yellow… it quite suits the sunny name of my blog, right?

Zombie Apocalypse

Hoards of zombies spilling out of an underground metro station, slowly making their way to open spaces in a busy neighborhood. Walking their weird walk. Growling, snarling, barring teeth. Open wounds spewing gore, bloodshot eyes glaring down ‘humans’… This was the scene at the annual Stockholm Zombie Walk. As an onlooker, I was super impressed with so much creativity and the amount of hard work that must have gone into the costumes and the make-up. I had a great time getting some very interesting photos.

You know what could be even more of an adventure? A Zombie Walk at night. Perhaps next year?!
