Project 365: Seeing red (and orange and purple)

Maybe it’s the warm, saturated colours that come with autumn, but I noticed that I have been completely fixated on the colour red in my pictures this week. Reds with green, reds with purples, reds with blues — it’s been a very red week!

Like this one – clearly, it was red laundry load day for this family. (As one of my friends on Flickr pondered, “Wonder if they were all red going into the washing machine?”) What is it about laundry lines? I love them, and this one in particular.

The reds are a little more muted in this one. This little pot of flowers has survived the whole season, from drippy spring to droughty summer. I fear the porch picture season may be drawing to a close!

And completely by fluke, I picked up on almost exactly the same colour palette when I found this colourful wall in the Byward Market. (I really had to resist the urge to straighten that lamp in photoshop. It’s still irking me!)

On that spectacularly summer-like Sunday we had, I had the pleasure of meeting this family of five. I’ll have a few more pictures from their portrait session to share soon. Aren’t they lovely?

It’s been ages since I’ve been out to Dow’s Lake, and they’ve got things moved around a bit. I snapped this sunset shot while I was waiting to meet with the bride and groom to be for a wedding I’ll be shooting later today. I’m so excited!

The fall colours are really starting to show off now. I loved how a quick break in a dark day gave this ordinary-looking field a bit of drama.

And finally, the only picture of the week that doesn’t feature the colour red: poor Katie, who’s face clearly says to me, “He’s TOUCHING me!” Funny, when we adopted Willie last spring, I knew that we’d have no trouble with Katie adapting to a new pet, but I have been surprised that it’s been her who is resistant to cuddling. Despite many efforts on Willie’s part, this is the first time I’ve ever seen her tolerate him cuddling with her.

I think autumn may well be the most photogenic of all the seasons!

I love the crooked lamp – it just seems right somehow. Lovely, lovey photos!
