Announcement! It’s day 49 of Dress the Rainbow and I told you it was going to be 50 days but I LIED! I got so wrapped up in the excitement of posing with some of my favorite friends in front of colorful walls that I just couldn’t stop and I ended up shooting 10 extra days! SO, that means that YOU have 10 extra days to grab something from your closet and go and DRESS THE RAINBOW! As if I haven’t hammered it into your brain enough!
BUT, I also thought you might be able to use a hand. Because I spent hours trolling the area, I have a firm grasp on where all the colorful walls are in Utah Valley and a bit in Salt Lake City and a tiny bit more in NYC, where I shot all the photos. So, I’m providing a list for all you locals (others, sorry, you’re on your own!), in hopes that go for it! Several of these were shot at private residences. I don’t condone shooting at private residences…but…umm….I did always knock at doors to ask 🙂
A few tips to those not in Utah:
- When looking for pink and purple: adult novelty stores, friends. That’s where they all are! Swearsies!
- AND, industrial walls are great for floor to roof colors in general.
- I find that parts of town that are dedicated to different cultures are more brightly painted.
- If you can’t find full walls, doors work too! Shoot it from the waist up to capture it.
Without further ado, your complete list of colorful walls in Utah Valley.
