DECEMBER PHOTO A DAY - DAY 1 (RED)

As mentioned on November 25th, December Photo A Day starts with Day One's subject matter being the color red.  Red is a bold, expressive color and perfect for the month of December when much of the country's landscape is lifeless and drab.  The photo(s) I chose to post are one I took of a red gladiolus in my backyard this past spring and one I took of a red gerbera daisy growing in a flower pot at my niece's house in Belfast, Maine.  There I go again breaking the rules by posting two photos and neither were pictures I took today.  Now, that's the way I like to start a challenge...my way! Well, at least this one I started in the right order.

  1. Pretty! I think I like the one on the left a little more...probably because the gray of the fence makes such a nice contrast to the dazzling red of the flower.

    I forgot all about this challenge, I will have to mine my phone to see if I have anything...I may have to cheat and post something my mom took. I promise I will give her proper credit! :)

    1. I think I like that one best also.

      Cheating is allowed...we make our own rules, right? You do know there's a actual Facebook group that is doing this photo A PHOTO A DAY thing. I got talked into joining and have to say I've enjoyed looking at all the various photos people post and their take on what each day means to them. You should check it out!

  2. I envy you your amazing visual creativity. When you post your paintings and other art works I am positively green (not red) with envy!

    1. So what's your guilty pleasure? Photography? Art? Music? Cooking? Doing crafts? I know you write and do an excellent job at that. I always admire people who can weave a picture from words.
