SundayStills – Color Challenge: Rosy Red

Not all that is red are flowers. This really was a challenge for me.

Red is not my favourite colour and I find it tricky to photograph its true colour so I couldn’t find too many in my archives. As I’m not able to hold my camera whilst wearing a sling, this is as good as it gets this week. 

A very red grand piano – this beautiful instrument was provided to the people of Christchurch not long after the devastating earthquakes so they could play and/or enjoy some inspiring amidst the chaos.

Roses are red – and so are petunias and begonias

Fungi can also offer some reds in Autumn when life is not always rosy and colourful.

And here is my taonga/ treasure -my pounamu/greenstone “The spirit of life” I keep it in my little kit (flax bag) adorned with rosy red feather when I’m not wearing it. It brings me balance.
