I found this exhausted truck in Utah, not too far from the crimson rocks of Bryce Canyon. One wonders: is everything is southern Utah turning this color?
A close up:
I’ve owned about fifteen vehicles but I’ve only owned one that was red—-a VW Bug that was my very first car. The car was red, but I was closer to green because I was only 18.
Sadly, my recollections of all the rest of my vehicles are starting to fade. When I reflect back, that VW bug really stands out. It seems that all the red things in my memory have a much longer expiration date.
I like my red photographs, so I try to cut this one a lot of slack. Problem is: I shot it on Fuji Velvia, so I had to decrease the red saturation.
Here’s some quotes about the color red from four different artists:
“Red is the ultimate cure for sadness.” –Bill Blass
“I love red so much that I almost want to paint everything red.”–Alexander Calder
“Red is one of the strongest colors, it’s blood, it has a power with the eye. That’s why traffic lights are red I guess, and stop signs as well…”–Keith Haring
“Red, of course, is the colour of the interior of our bodies. In a way it’s inside out, red.” –Anish Kapoor
