White all around

3 photographs from my trip to K's wedding at the Ice Hotel in Jan 2006...

This is the wall of K's suite on her wedding night!

Wow, I'm so envious, I've wanted to visit The Ice Hotel ever since I first read about. Of course, I don't do well with cold so I'm not sure I'd enjoy it as much as I think I would but I could wrap up in about 20 layers.

Beautiful collection of photos btw. I'm so in love with white and use it in my work a lot. I just love its emptiness, although of course, it has so many cultural meanings around the world.
