Anyone using other than white would be seen as a rebel here John!
John Prior: Thanks Chris, yes and definitely breaking the rules, originally everything would have been stone coloured but for long time now it has been white by civic decree, it reflects the sun to help keep things cool.

very beautiful architecture and your POV and angle as well!
A pleasant harmony of forms and colours!
John Prior: Thank you Grapf.
A very nice picture, John. White everywhere, unless its yellow ochre, or cream.
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, I was told in some of the villages it has to be white, no other colours allowed.
