Breaking the Monotony

I live in a grey place, the Pacific Northwest. We usually get an inordinate amount of rain as well as a lot of overcast days. Often in winter, when the clouds pass and the nights are clear and moonlit, the fog rises with the morning sun creating a fuzzy, dim twilight all day. This can go on for weeks. Months.

I’m not kidding.

I’ve noticed in my travels that sometimes a culture will arise in a grey place that strives to break the monotone – the colorful houses of Dingle in Ireland or Ilulissat in Greenland, for instance. My NW neighbors still frown on too much deviation from the beige norm in house paint, but my town does love its mural art.

I had the pleasure today of having a free day and kept my eye out for the colorful walls around me.

Here’s some of what I saw:
