Travel Word’s Life In Colour Challenge: Blue Buildings

Strand Theatre facade, Duval Street, Key West

When HeyJude suggested this topic, my hopes were not high of having any pictures of blue buildings in my archives, but I did find a few, assuming turquoise counts. These are all from the colourful Southern States of America.

  1. Shack up Inn looks fab. As do the bird houses. And yes turquoise and teal count / blue – greens was one of my weekly suggestions so you fulfilled two in one here.

  2. How light-hearted serious blues can be! And on bird houses, no less! I don’t know which I like better, the glass doorknob one or the polka-dot one, so I’ll like them both best. I was pretty chuffed to guess right about where they are.

    1. You have a whole new window to look through now. Every now and again Suzie repaints the birdhouses and these are refurbished versions. Does she use masking tape? That would be quite a picture, if so.

  3. Fantastic! I particularly liked the bird house with the doorknob. There are some blue houses in Maine, but they tend to be much more sedate. Maine is, after all, in New England. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Can’t go wrong with blue. You need to head to Newfoundland, Canada, for its beautiful and colourful buildings. Love the bird house as well.

    1. A couple of years ago I was taking them a lot quicker than I could post them, but I’ve been very grateful for that the last few months. ๐Ÿ™‚
