The red (and I do mean red) tractor

This old tractor, seen at a nearby display of old agricultural machinery, has certainly been well driven and it’s undoubtedly colourful, so fits the brief for Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge this week.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Drive

Red railing

You could argue all night about what is the photographer’s greatest friend, but I’d have to say that a red foreground object must be among the frontrunners.

Imagine how dull this picture would be without that red railing.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

This essentially unexciting window in the centre of the town of Aubusson comes to life thanks to its freshly-painted, vibrant red shutters.

Ladder

The theme  for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is ‘Shadows’. This is the top of a ladder which allows sailors to step down into their boats from the jetty at Saint Andrews harbour, in Scotland. The low, bright sunlight casts strong shadows on and from the freshly painted metalwork – too red not to apply some selective colour to the image.

Early morning raindrops add interest to this bunch of bright red berries.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 6 – Red

Red features prominently in this image of a vintage car – although the red on the left side of the bodywork is actually a reflection of the car parked next to it, which was all red – but not very photogenic.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated

With ‘Vivid’ settings or Photoshop, of course it’s possible to saturate any picture. But isn’t it better when Nature does the job for you?
