Travel Theme: White

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is WHITE in honor of the UN’s International Day of Peace. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon wrote in his message for today: “On the International Day of Peace, I call on combatants around the world to find peaceful solutions to their conflicts. Let us all work together for a safe, just and prosperous future for all.”

There are many opportunities to find peace in this world and I believe it is only sustainable if it starts with individuals committed to resolving conflicts, in not seeing the world and its issues in simply black and white, right or wrong, either/or terms.

As a commemoration of International Peace Day, Ailsa has proposed white themed photos. Here is a Baker’s Dozen of white or predominately white photographs I’ve taken over the last few years:
