I See Red

050 Red Head on Bus

The connection is bus travel, this time the interior of a bus rather than a bus stop.  I liked the way the lady’s red hair matched the various safety poles inside the bus so it was recorded for posterity.  It’s interesting that her red hair would normally be very distinctive in a crowd of people, but she sort of blends in chameleon-like with the bus interior.

Using the above image for the connection made me wonder if I tend to be attracted to scenes with an abundance of red in them.  I don’t really have a favourite colour, but I guess the boldness of red is attractive and can emphasise the graphic nature of an image.  So, to explore this idea further I’ve raided my back catalogue and pulled out some of the ones that have red subject matter…or are simply red throughout!  They’re sort of grouped in order.
