No matter how you say it,
when you see
red,
it is
emotionally intense.

“Painters use red like spice.”
~Derek Jarman~

The color red
stimulates energy
thus increasing heartbeat,
blood pressure,
respiration,
and
enthusiasm.
Red
is the color of love,
lessens fear,
and lessens feelings of mistrust.
Red is the highest arc of the rainbow,
has the longest wavelength of light
and is the first color you lose sight of at twilight.
Red
is mysterious, protective and warm
and symbolizes
joy,
life,
energy,
good luck,
fortune,
creativity,
and prolonged life.

Red is the
ultimate cure for sadness.”

~Bill Blass~

The best advice I ever received: Every woman should have a pair of red boots.

The frosted rose is stunning and I'd love one of those polka dot umbrellas– It so happy looking for a rainy day.
Merry Christmas, jj

I rarely wear red – I love pinks, lime greens and light blue:) My favorite lipstick is natural pink:)

I really like how you have "red" in so many different languages and the photos are so inspiring. I love the one of the umbrella against the blue sky! Red is a gorgeous color, I love it too. 🙂

Great collection of photos! I love the bokeh one. I don't like red as a clothing choice but as a lipstick it's a must! 🙂
