Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Find Something Red

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Find Something Red.

One photo came to mind instantly, a freshly painted red post box in Faddiley, Cheshire, England. The chalked “Wet Paint” warning and the excess paint on the utility pole and hedge have always amused me.

The next photo that came to mind was this red Maple leaf on a Lichen covered boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula last autumn.

Then I thought about the giant red butterfly garden ornament I pass on some of my walks around the neighborhood.

Finally I thought about various red species, birds, berries and fruit and remembered this extreme closeup of a Raspberry.

You can never go wrong with a letter box! But, the raspberry was shockingly close to my eye – at first I thought there were many of them!

I could probably have done a post of just post boxes but wanted to vary the photos up. Yes, the Raspberry is just a portion of a single fruit. I thought I would go with something different than a whole fruit or some red berries.

Thanks Patti. I don’t remember noticing the red paint on the hedge to the left of the post box until I edited the shot for the challenge. I get the impression that the painter used a broom rather than a paint brush.

Thanks Amy. I couldn’t leave the raspberry out of the Red challenge. After adding the raspberry I was tempted to add a male Purple Finch as I’ve often thought they should really be named the Raspberry Red Finch.
