Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #81: Find Something Red

It’s Lens-Artists photo challenge time again. Patti challenges us to find something red. She started her post with the phrase “Sometimes in the middle of winter” and my brain completed the sentence with “find something red” despite she wrote “, the world is reduced to stark shades of black and white”.

Red is one of the strongest colors we have. Red means blood, fire, and danger, but also love and warmth. Also, many fruits are red, when they are ripe and thus easier to find.

It would be easy to bring up a color-key image, where everything is converted to black and white while some red spots keep their color. I was also considering some fruits.

Currently, I working on images I took in northern Norway a couple of years ago during winter. So I’d find many images of these pretty red houses surrounded by snow. (Here we have the starting line, where my mind failed in reading it correctly 😀)

 

Instead, I picked this pretty blossom, where the red color really pops out

Take care!
