Photos of the most colorful cities and towns by different photographers

Today, let's travel and speak about colorful photos of cities around the world with the eyes from different photographers (professionals or amateurs) and from different countries around the globe.

If during this little photographic travel, you are thinking that the most popular metropoles are just made of skyscrapers wearing shiny glasses and grey concrete façades*, it's the moment to start to rethink your opinion about colors in the cities and metropoles.

* Yes! façade is written with c cedilla, [option/alt+c], the auto correction insisted and told me that's a french word and before it was a spanish word, but now it's an english word (try to understand...).

Some, very good, examples are in the countries where they are cultivating and producing a lot of different spices, and it looks like, this diversity of very colored spices are reflected on the vivid colors of their buildings as in their colorful streets.

 

So now, you might think there is a pattern to find colorful streets, building and cities...
I will disappoint you, i didn't find any patterns, yet, just look around the mediterranean sea, like Cinque Terre in Italy, or like Wrocław in Poland or even more in the northern hemisphere like Reykjavik in Iceland, there is no patterns about: why it is colorful there and not here?

From the vivid colored buildings of Havana in Cuba to the blue streets of Chefchaouen in Morocco and the blue houses of Jodhpur in India, passing by the vibrant colors of Pachuca in Mexico many urban areas in different countries have embraced colorful and vibrant hues in their streets and buildings for centuries.

 

To brighten your day, below are some photos of the most colorful of cities, buildings and towns around the world with their respective photographers website's link (click on the image), to delight yourself on their colorful and fantastic portfolios.
