Traditional Colours

May 22, 2012

Every place has its own identity, its own feel, its own appearance. And although a thoroughly historic place with a strong identity does not need personal branding…..

….citizens and governers try to rediscover their corporate identity anyway. But for an observant visitor from far abroad, the characteristic colours are so obvious – they can be felt and seen in many places.

and sometimes they are hidden, faded, or altered by weather and age. Even then the traditional colours can be sensed. They are just waiting for conservation, patiently.
