What is YOUR descriptive analysis of the color white without using the actual word?
It represent the color of hope. and is the brightest form of black in the color spectrum. A lighter shade of gray. but not the color gray.
All colors mixed together. Kind of a boring answer I know, but it's what comes to mind.
Hey, RealityTalk, I wrote a hub on Indian politics. Thought you'd be interested.
All colours mixed together would create a colour close to black, the opposite of white. See my own answer.
alancaster149, Black is the absence of all visible light, while white is the presence of the complete spectrum; that is my reference.
Amazing Thinker, I am reading your Hub now.
when you spin a top made of all colors, it appears white.
Clean, pure, innocent... Just like a baby. Life is like a canvas; it's white when we start, on the way we paint it with different colors to create something beautiful, which defines it. These colors represent our journey and knowledge. Everyone is an artist.
The total reflection of any and all light equals said color definition.
To me the color white means Pure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
immaculate snow-covered landscape; blank page of a newly bought notebook; clouds drifting like pure innocent angels; a pond enlightened with virgin lilies and fluttering swans
The full, glorious spectrum of electromagnetic radiation visible to the human eye produces this pristine color.
The stars on the American flag.
The HP gods said that answer was too short. I beg to differ, but let's see if the answer is now long enough.
Yep, it is. Jeez, they're so easy to trick.
In terms of printing: a non-colour, it's generally the paper printed on.
In terms of light: the absence of colour in the spectrum. Meaning a non-reflecting surface or area of light.
In terms of paint finishes: a potentially dazzling reflective surface. Used on cars or external walls it's a no-no on bright sunny days, just like silver-painted ones or large chromed surfaces.
Not very poetic, nor am I.
Concentration of colour in front of a light source blocks out light to get a colourless area on a screen. That's how film projectors worked. A concentration of colour processes in ink creates the opposite on a solid surface. That's printing.
Maybe you remember Mary O'Neill's "Hailstones and Halibut Bones" - most lovely extended poems on each color:
"...White is marshmallow
And vanilla ice cream
And the part you can’t remember
In a dream...."
I had always remembered "it covers up, the rundown street, the broken cup..." and searched for that poem for years thinking it was the one about white because I always thought that snow was beautiful because it "...covered up the run-down street..."). But finally I persisted on google and found out it wasn't white that those words referred to. It was Mary O'Neill's poem from the same book, but that those particular lines were a description of black
Lovely question that brought that sweet book back into my mind.
Pure, stainless, without blots. Robes of saints, a bride, a baptism.
Pure as the driven snow, reflecting of light, innocent. Opposite of black/dark.

What descriptive words would YOU use to describe 3AM without using the actual time?3AM conjures up so many things to many people. For some, it is just time, no more no less. For others, it is a time of stillness and for a few, it is THAT TIME, the time of beckoning and FEAR where ALL...
