Thematic Photographic 156 - Red
You've got a fast car
Mahwah, NJ, July 2011
I once drove a red car. It wasn't a sports car by any stretch of the imagination. It was a Honda. Small, practical and reasonable. But its color somehow made it seem a little faster than it was, a little more memorable, a little hotter than its plebian hatchback origins would have suggested. Owning it helped me understand why some folks believe the only acceptable color for a Ferrari is red.
Of course, that was before I was married. Before you needed four doors to more easily get the munchkins and car seats into the back seat, before responsibility joined fun on the priority list of life. I haven't had a red car since, but that doesn't mean the color doesn't jump out at me on occasion.
Like here. And, hopefully, for the next week as we explore this life-affirming color together.
Your turn: Please post a red-themed pic on your blog, or find one already online. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Drop by other participants to share the photographic joy. There's no limit on how often you can participate - we encourage that kind of thing - and no limit on how many friends you drag in, too. Just enjoy the process and see what kind of redness pops up through your lens. Looking forward to seeing what y'all come up with!
