The White Dream in Mykonos: With a Little Bit of Red

As much as I like the tone in a photo to see the form of a single-colour object, I pretty much like a little of flavouring colours to make the subject even more outstanding. If a white subject is filled in with some primary colours, like what I've shown in the stairways and gates and doors shots, the photos are more pleasing to the eyes.

The robot figure built from recycled materials is just so cute!

Mykonos is just a haven for the single-colour object photography as almost all the houses are painted white. With a little flavouring red colour from the bougainvilleas and other type of red flowers, they form a very interesting subject for photography.

The adorning red bougainvillea on the whitewashed wall forms a very good foreground for the white subject behind.

The overhanging red bougainvillea frames the top of the whitewashed building nicely.

The red flowers of the potted plants add some flavour to the all white scene.

A single red potted plant stands out from the other white-colour objects.

Some decorative red bougainvillea in front of the whitewashed cube buildings provides the colour contrast very well.
