Photos of Red
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?!
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.
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 ...
Just look at the vibrant energy in this photo! The florets look like they're ready to explode. I couldn't leave it out.
All photos were taken with THIS camera! - Make it YOURS!
Curtain Call - Half time at Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking show.
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?
A. It didn't.
Red Slide - Take the plunge!
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!
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.
The sun was low and the Banksia [?] was high. A perfect combo in suburban Melbourne.
Heading Out - Could this matchbox be any more dilapidated?!
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!
This car is a little ripper. Being red, it goes up to 6.7% faster than other cars.
