COLOUR WEEK :: DAY 5 :: RED

the last day of colour week
...thank you so much for kicking it all off julie!

i've really enjoyed it...sometimes i thrive on a bit of direction : )
+ it's been so lovely to see everyone's interpretations each day

...lots of new faces + blogs...

thank you to all who've left me comments over the week
it's been great to hear from you + pay a visit to where you 'live'!

hmmm...i've decided that i'm going to keep up my colour file of photos
i feel like my eyes have become tuned in again this week
+ i've rekindled a love of certain shades

here's 2 favourite artworks of mine whilst we're on the subject of red

on the road to thoiry (1970)
by peter knapp (swiss photographer, born 1931)

something about this takes me back to being a child
feeling happy + secure...a nostalgic image

betty
oil on canvas 1988
by gerhard richter (german artist, born 1932)

this is just so beautiful
the light
the pattern
+
how i'd love to see the original

one last link...le ballon rouge
see a clip here

happy friday!

I haven't commented on all your posts, but I've really enjoyed reading about 'Colour week'. The pictures have all been lovely, lovely. I love the way projects like these make you go out of your way to look for the litle details that are so often overlooked.

Great end to a fun series.
Thanks for sharing. Terrific photos.

I have really enjoyed seeing what you'd be posting each day:)

Colour excites me so much so I think you will have to do a white post so I can calm down a bit.

Yay, red shoes! Did you see all of The Wendy House's shoes?

Your pictures are great.

Love the red boots - so many people seem to have red shoes - I think I'll need to get some!

thank you also for sharing the photo with the girl on the space hopper! As a young child (many years ago) I had a space hopper and the ubiquitous bad tempered old lady across the road used to shout at me to stop riding my space hopper on the pavement (sidewalk), I wasn't sure if at the age of 5 I should be hopping down the road but now I see it would have been a good thing!

Nice!! Love the little red ribbon on white curtains. And the photo of the red ball is completely wonderful! So happy to have been able to visit.

That Gerard Richter is one of my favorite paintings so I am happy to see you posted about it.!!

Red red red..my favourite colour by a mile.
I'm so glad you watched and loved 12 Angry Men. It's one of my top 10 and I'm so happy when others embrace it too! (Man, I really need to get back in the swing of things and do another Film Friday). And thanks for the tip about Borders..I will have to make a special visit up to Lakeside at some point.

Love your red shoes! The links are great too, very fun-filled space hopper by Peter knapp and Gerhard Richter's painting is just amazing and very realistic! Thank you.
