Thematic Photographic 174 - Seeing Red


Nature's brilliance
London, ON, November 2011

Red isn't so much a color as it is a culture. You feel it before you see it, and it sticks with you in your mind long after your eyes have moved elsewhere. If any color can raise the temperature of our soul, it would be red.

The onset of autumn makes it harder to find, but I've got immense faith in our loyal Thematic fans, and I know the next week will be filled with lots of red scenes.

Your turn: Take a picture that evokes the "seeing red" theme. It could simply have something red in it, or it could suggest the color. Or whatever: Remember the rule of Thematic, that it's entirely up to you to interpret a given theme. No rights, no wrongs. When you're done, post it to your blog (or find something you may have already shared) and leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants and rook distant family members into joining the insanity. Thematic is our rather informal and fun weekly photo-sharing-exploration thing, and you can learn more about it here.

I had an easy time with this theme, luckily.

I'm really not being creative with these lately -- too stressed for time. But at least I got something posted this week!

I am not a photographer, so I don't participate in these, but I love visiting the blogs that do and seeing all the creative ideas!

I love that line, “If any color can raise the temperature of our soul, it would be red”. Indeed. The shots (and words) I’ve shared for this theme are precisely that: a window into the temperature of the soul.

Mine is here.

So all season I see reds that raise the temperature of my soul...in a good way! I just posted on my blog an "At The Moment" installment that reflects this...After putting my little blog on hold to become a fulltime stepmom to 2 little girls, this holiday season, and reconnecting with all of you creative and lovely bloggers/photographers/writers has been like a tonic. xoxo jo@everydayjuju

I was just looking through my most recent posts and realized 5 of the last 7 posts have a red theme.
