Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #81: Find Something Red

When I started looking through my photos for this Lens-Artist’s Challenge I was surprised how many photos I found with the color red.  It was almost as though I hadn’t see it before.  Isn’t it surprising how much we do not see, until we look for it?

The top photo, as well as the first few below, were taken on our visit to Sandals Resort in the Bahamas. We have visited one other Sandals resort, down in Antigua, and they also had one of those red phone booths.  I wonder if it’s a Caribbean thing…






This flower was one of the many flowers on the property

The photo below was taken on our shopping walk through Nassau.  I just loved the colors!  I wish I could have done more sight seeing and taken more photos of all the colors of the Bahamas.


Below is a Life Guard station on Siesta Beach, Florida.  We visited this area before we headed over to the Bahamas.


Below are two photos looking up at the Golden Gate Bridge.  These were taken on our Highway 1 Road Trip in May of last year.  I actually got kind of dizzy taking these photos straight up!




Theses last two photos I took on a walk through our neighborhood. I love bees and have posted many bee photos.  I’m sure there will be more in the future 😊

    1. Awww, thanks! They had all different colors for the lifeguard stations. I think that was to help folks not get lost on the beach 😊

        seems like a good idea to help people see the different stations then
