A red accent does wonders to an ensemble. Fashion accessories are often good carriers of accent colours and this photograph of a model sitting on railway tracks is a great example. The cool colours of her deep blue skirt and her white and grey blouse are well offset by the red in her lips and the striking red of her thin belt. Adding to it is the red belt itself which is slender rather than broad and works beautifully with the patterned blouse by being a braided rope belt; Two textures in an otherwise flat coloured look. A good use of contrasts.

Beyond the fashions and red accessories, I do love this photograph purely as an image. It has a simple openness to it that makes you want to keep looking. The model is inviting and the scene seems to lead you into the distance on journeys and adventures beyond this lovely green place.

The Red Website is Live

I love the colour red. It’s the reason I picked up this domain name a while back, and at long last I have decided to make my own personal tribute blog to the colour red.

Here I will cover all things of interest related to the colour red, crimson, tides, scarlet splashes, and rouge objects. If it’s red it will be here. There’s no strict plan for this blog and I hope it grows organically as I work on it.

For now enjoy the journey and along with regular red posts, I also plan of putting up interesting red photographs on a daily basis.
