naturally every space has a color theme of it's own. some cities jump out in this regard more than others. when i first came to the southern hemisphere i was struck by the difference in the quality of light. in los angeles we have so much smog which diffuses the air and makes for spectacular sunsets. in new zealand [when it's not overcast] the light in contrast seems so stark and strong. in melbourne the weather was quite warm and the light was again different. the color palette that emerged surprised me- bright greens and soft pastels. though it was late summer, to me the feeling was distinctly spring.
