White - Roy G Biv 2014

It's that time of the month when Roy G Biv rolls around and this month its white that's being showcased.
Thermocol packaging stacked against a wall.
Stairway to heaven. A little shrine on the way to our home in the Nilgiris. Built on a large rocky outcrop the stairs are painted white and the artist must have imagined the rock to be the night sky because there are stars painted at random on the black granite.  
Bringing in the catch. On Bandar beach in Andhra Pradesh.
In South India rice is the staple food and rice is the basic ingredient for a number of typical south indian dishes. In the picture above taken in One Town, Vijayawada, a man is frying the snack, Punagulu. One large container holds the white rice batter. A wok holds hot oil into which he puts small quantities of batter which are fried until a pale cream. Then they are removed from the hot oil with the large sieve like spoon resting in the battered looking colander like container. The Punagulu are fried a second time to make them crisp and irresistible. 
White bougainvillea.
To finish off I have a picture of a chocolate dessert platter which I really enjoyed.

Julie and Jennifer will have links on their blogs which will take you on a discovery of white.

Two colours to go before the end of the year. You could decide to play along in which case
November 20 will showcase Brown and
December 18 will be Blogger's Choice.

The photo of those boats is lovely, and so is the bougainvillea, but that last one is the best...

I love the bougainvillea - such gorgeous creamy white and that curious stairway to heaven with its stars in the rocks. We saw something similar in Thailand last year - good memories ...
