White reflects all
the colors of the visible
light spectrum to the eyes.
The left photo was taken on a cloudy day, so the white colors and shadows look gray. We all know how white (ish) snow can look on a bright, sunny day, but yet, look at those gorgeous shades of grayish blue!
The middle photo was taken in a room with orange walls, and sunset, hence the darker beige hues. (You'll just have to trust me that the curtain and sculpture is actually white.) On a bright day this scene looks much whiter, and yet, look at those gorgeous shades of pinkish beige!
The right photo was taken after a snowstorm, in the shade, so the shadows looked very blue. Again, we all know how white (ish) snow looks on a sunny day, but yet, look at those shades of blue!
