The Coloured Houses of Aruba

When I visited Aruba last month I was delighted by the amount of beautifully coloured houses that were dotted around the main towns and along the side of roads.

The vividly painted architecture were such a beautiful sight in such a desert like terrain I decided to capture some of the best on camera and put together a photo journal. The people of Aruba paint their houses both as a way of identity but also represent the colours of Aruba. The blue represents the sea that surrounds Aruba; yellow is the colour of abundance; red is for love; and white is for our pristine beaches.

    I love coloured houses so much! They are definitely more of a thing in the caribbean, central and south america. I visited Puerto Rico in July as there was so much colour everywhere!
