Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #24: The Color Red

Carly picked an appropriate theme for this week, don't you think?

EMPS #24: The Color RED.
With Valentine's Day next Saturday, and February being Heart Health Awareness month, what better time to focus our attention, and camera, on the color RED. As always, feel free to step outside the box as far as interpretation goes. RED Beans & Rice, RED hearts, RED roses, RED dogs, a RED crayon, RED cream soda, RED meat, RED rubies, RED cars, RED clothing, Rhode Island RED chickens. You get the idea.

Extra Credit: Show me something Valentine's Day related that isn't RED!

I couldn't find a whole lot to photograph since we have no blooming flowers during February in my area. Here's what I have for this week.

Here is a shot of silicone spoon-type thing that doesn't quite fit in:



Since I was running out of red things, I took a picture of my son's multi-colored basketball. The red portion is centered, of course.





And, since it was Valentine's Day yesterday, I had to take a picture of a heart.



As for something Valentine's Day that isn't red, I give you one of my favorite Valentine's Day candy:

Hi Mike :)

Well done! I especially liked the spoonythingy... more misplaced object of culinary assistance! :)

Neat collection.

Have a great week.

Always, Carly

All of your reds are nice, and I like the white Valentine's heart, too. Good shots!

Ha! I love the one red utensil with the black! And the heart that says Cloud Nine. ;-)
