Red: you don't need much of it, but you must have some. More red photos here.

Yeah, so these are pretty great! I was also really drawn to the red octopus in your flickr stream. I wish you could come photograph my little community. I think I'd fall in love with it all over again seeing it's details from your artistic perspective.

And I agree, a little bit of red goes a long way.

The first photo just takes the cake-- red or no red, but the red is nice. Love the teapot. And I think the fish one is mesmerizing.

What an interesting message to spray paint! Darling little red teapot!!! ♥ And to the right, looks like someone is doing a bit of felt sewing.

It is sometimes hard for me to chose which photos to include because I tend to put them up as a whole. That is, they must look good all together. This is often the most difficult part of photo friday for me... because I want the COLLECTION of photos to say something together. So in the case of RED today I left out some lovely red images (like the octopus) because it didn't work with the top two images, and I had settled on those.

Amber, I have noticed that your pictures always look great together and that you somehow create a visual connection between them, of course not just visual.
It's an amazing gift you have there. Like I said before, I think you are a master at dytichs.

I like the collection that you chose for this Friday. The first one is of course just a great picture. I admire your eye for street photography.
I love the teapot, because I actually have one like that.
And, I agree with Julia on the third one. The octopus
one is also mesmerizing. Where did you take that one?

The fish on the sticks is almost haunting, lovely.

As others have said, the collections you post do work at a different level than the individual images in the posts. I like your eye, and how you put things together.
