I'm very proud of this photo. Not just because it's so beautiful, but because I managed to take it - under such pressure, too; the flowers are so light, and the wind kept taking them. However, as you can see, I did it.
I'd like to show you some of my photos that capture the Caribbean red. It's a colour that transfixed me time and time again. Whatever you might think about synesthesia, I think that Caribbean red jingles and rings. It has the ability to linger in the Caribbean air.
Here's a quotation from Colour: Messages and Meanings by Leatrice Eiseman:
"Red is the most physical color in the spectrum. It is the most viscerally alive hue,the symbolic color of the heart,strong-willed and expressing strong emotions. It may command us to stop but at the same time encourages movement. Physiologically, red is a call to the adrenaline glands to get the body and senses activated.
Word association studies invariably show red is perceived as most sensual of all colors and, as the saying goes, 'sex sells'. "
