Photos of Red

Updated on March 23, 2014

Photographs of Red Things.

I like red things. How about you?

Buoyed by kind comments from readers of my other photo lenses (links below), I'm tabling my red photos.

Here they are, for your utility and pleasure. Check back often, as this hot collation is sure to fire!

Mosquito Olympics - Over and out!

I was hunting red things and what did I find? A stop-motion still-life of the mosquito long jump! This red is the base a SALE sign in a rug shop. What tiny dramas unfold around us each moment. For my finale, I draw your attention to the white section. Do you see the serried silhouette of 1890s shops? That's the glass reflecting the other side of the street! I wish I could claim I'd done that on purpose. But it's just another happy photography accident.

Plane Red - A rosy take on flying.

Plenty here for fans of perspective.

Saved By The Bell - An alarming development.

This photo has my ringing endorsement. How about yours?

Dino - Is this car red-faced or what?!

type=text
type=text

In response to Dave's comment below, I present this sports car. It looks like a Ferrari, but it has Dino on the badge. Maybe you can fill me in. Anyway, it's red. And a tad more exciting than my Ford Fiesta!

Picture of Lilly - The 'other' Iron Lady.

type=text
type=text

Lilly is an Iron Fairy. A gift to my wife from a good friend. Lilly is a seated on another gift - a beautiful hand-made mosaic sphere. It's one of her favourite spots in our garden.

Red Burst - I already have a Banksia photo in this lens but ...

type=text
type=text

Just look at the vibrant energy in this photo! The florets look like they're ready to explode. I couldn't leave it out.

Curtain Call - Half time at Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking show.

type=text
type=text

I had a Cooper's Sparkling Ale. The one with the red label! Note the bright light from the iPhone. This is one of the reasons I love using available light only. Flash would've killed it.

Red Alert - Q. Why did the shopping trolley cross the railway line?

type=text
type=text

A. It didn't.

Red Slide - Take the plunge!

type=text
type=text

They say overcast days give the best light for photographs. I'm pretty happy with this one. The chipbark detail was a delightful surprise. As were the bright reflections on the slide. The lines of perspective offered by the whole playground give an Escher-like feel to this photo. The powers of my new camera continue to amaze me.

Hunk of Burnin' Love - Red cars DO go faster!

type=text
type=text

Not sure if this was a tragedy, a crime of passion or a plain old insurance scam. All I know is that someone, somewhere ... is in the red.

Bottler - Scrubbed up well.

type=text
type=text

The sun was low and the Banksia [?] was high. A perfect combo in suburban Melbourne.

Heading Out - Could this matchbox be any more dilapidated?!

type=text
type=text

The colour’s gone. The scratch plate’s scarred. The cardboard’s collapsing. The edges are frayed. The matches are burnt. The grass looks like it can’t wait for a decent rain shower to finish the job. Still, I hope this photo lights your fire.

Fiesta out Front - It's a new car!

type=text
type=text

This car is a little ripper. Being red, it goes up to 6.7% faster than other cars.

      I love your study in red. Lily the fairy atop her red mosaic globe would be my favorite shot if I were forced to pick one. It's amazing to me the beautiful shots that are possible with today's digital cameras. Of course the photographer's eye is still the most important element. I'm off to see your other colors.

      Another winner. Love red! The matchbox girl reminds me of some of the avatars I've seen around Squidoo.

      Red is one of the hottest and popular colors that often be used in Chinese wedding ceremony decoration.

      Indeed, my father-in-law pushed my wife down the aisle in that red trolley. Red is lucky. Unfortunately, in so doing, she broke the eggs, but that is a story for your yellow lens. Great work! Carry on ...

      Lilly trumps them both. Perhaps replace your flagship Fiesta top level shot with one of your others? Red with interest though ... :)

      @SciTechEditorDave: I think Ferrari trumps Ford Fiesta! Glad you're digging the scene, Dave. Thanks for all the great vibes. Best regards, P. :)

      I've got a picture of a RED Ferrari... with my daughter standing next to it. So yes, I like red. I've liked, favorited, thumbs-upped, and lensrolled your great lens! Congrats on a great job!

      @adamnrave: I totally hear you on that one, Ad. I feel the same. I comfort myself with the thought that this box decayed to nurture the soil for nearby trees. All we need do is chop them down and make cardboard and matches out of them and the circle will be complete! Love your comments, Mate. Thank you. :)

      I find the matchbox photo kind of sad. Decay and death, even for a matchbox. Great lens though. The Paul Hassing Squidoo World sure is fascinating. Thanks.
