Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #81 – Find Something Red

Give me juicy autumnal fruit, ripe and red from the orchard. – Walt Whitman

”No matter what the season, this color is emotional, fiery, and sensual. It is hopeful and passionate.” The description unmistakably belongs to the colour Red. This week Patti invites us to a photo scavenger hunt to find things red. Check out her special offerings!

This is what I found… starting with a tiny dot… growing into more and more of… Red.

And as Christian Dior said There is certainly a red for everyone

O my Luve is like a red, red rose

   That’s newly sprung in June;

O my Luve is like the melody

   That’s sweetly played in tune.

– Robert Burns

Through the rear window of an old camper – despite the jumble and reflections, your eyes go for the red spots and the roses. You can’t go wrong with red roses, ever. Trust the poets – and your heart.

Finally, even though a bit faded – a phone shot of my garden and Flammentanz roses.

  1. Nice. I’m a fan of roses and they look stunning on your wall. I’m a little alarmed by the jumble of wiring though. It doesn’t look entirely safe.

  2. […] . Once more, thanks and kudos to the inspiring Lens Artists – Patti, Tina, Amy, and Leya – for their continuing devotion to elevating and celebrating photography. From Patti Lens Artists Weekly Photo Challenge 81: Find Something Red. From Tina Lens Artists Weekly Photo Challenge 81: Seeing Red.

    • Yes, thank you, Brian. Exciting guest! I hope you are getting along better now. We don’t here much from Australia on the news, not since we heard of heavy rains.

      • All is going well A-C thanks. Yes there will be news of floods now no doubt. There are still some fires raging in the southern part of Aust.

  3. A-C, you always get it right. That top image …. fantastic. And I love the Champagne gifts box, that you must have met at an airport *smile And those fantastic roses in your garden, just wonderful. A wonderful gallery. See you over at my place next week. And I total agree with M Dior.

  4. Very appropriate for Burns Day, Ann Christine 🙂 🙂 Gorgeous rose shots and I never saw redder pomegranate seeds! Curious to see what Vivi gets up to next week! 🙂

  5. Your opening image is simply amazing Ann-Christine – a still life in which the fruit looks like you could eat it right off the page! Lovely touches of red this week – and oh la la those flowers! I am so envious of anyone who can make a garden thrive. I am definitely not among them.

    • Tasty, aren’t they, Tina? Thank you! And I try to make the garden work, but roses don’t need much attention- which suits me perfectly!

  6. Wow! Your Flammentanz roses look stunning, Leya!!! And the pomegranates look extremely tempting! Just so beautiful – and healthy! 😀 Love the Robert Burns poem!
