depictions by the rule of thirds; descriptions mostly freestyle words

There is so much more to ‘red’ than meets the eye. Just look around! So for Debbi’s challenge I am offering a bit more than just the one word Sunday: Red

I have to ask, what’s the angular red “thing” with the Pigeon on top?
the art deco Lido sign at Cliftonville, Kent

Thanks Laura. I had to Google Cliftonville.
a fashionable seaside town in the heyday of the 20s & 30s – I have spent many a happy hour here long after then!!
Nice varied selection of reds and quotes.
Thank you though your raspberries really hit the spot
Glad you enjoyed them, Laura. I’m looking forward to spring when they’re once again in season.
I love photos 1, 3, 5! Excellent choices.
Many thanks Robert
I always wonder if we look at the same red – if you and I see the same colour? How can or could we ever know?
It’s part of the magic of colour perception and the mystery of being
I like the motion in that last image.
Thank you – I do like ICM but need a neutral density filter for more scenarios
I thought the lido sign was the one at Margate – hadn’t realised there were others out there. Some great reds – many thanks!
It’s actually in Cliftonville which is a peripheral locale but sometimes the Lido is nominally subsumed under Margate
Gorgeous snaps these are 🙂
thank you –
A beautiful red gallery. 🙂
a bit of a garish gallery put all together so thank you Amy
Oh, I do love this study, Laura! Your images are wonderfully done (I especially like the last one), and the quotes work well.
thank you Charley – am a bit of a quoteaholic (different surely from quotaholic) and find gallery posts an ideal way to slip them in. Their succinctness makes them more readily remembered and I especially found the Hoffman quote pertinent to how I am trying to train my photographic eye
How did I miss these?! Red, the color of passion, but these shots soothe. I sigh at their beauty. A sucker for the flower shots, but I am taken with the lighting of that apple and the motion at the end. Good job of ordering them!
Jilly, your enjoyment speaks volumes ❤ and your observation of the order made me look again and see how the first and last are well paired – one prohibits movement and the other personifies it!
