My Life in Red

February seems to be the perfect month for a project I've wanted to try for some time: photographing all of the red in my life. The big things, the little things, the everyday and the unusual -- my camera is coming everywhere with me, and will be used mercilessly for the next week.

 Photo sources: 1, 2, 3, 4

It's not only a way to give my beloved 365 photo-a-day project a bit of a kick up the bottom, but also an exercise in boldly taking photographs where no one has taken them before (well, just being a bit braver about whipping out the camera in public. Anyone else feel a little lens-conscious around strangers?)

So, get ready for some serious red coming your way this week. If you'd like to join in, and photograph your week completely in red (or your completely colour) drop me a note in the comments and I'll set it up so you can add your link each day.

P.S. I'll have the big news ready for you on Thursday. And no, it's not another baby. Thank you for all your excited/congratulatory/horrified emails!

What a cool idea! I totally get feeling self-conscious taking pictures - I always have a weird paranoia that everyone is suddenly a pro photographer thinking "what is she taking pictures of THAT for?" Looking forward to seeing all your red!

Brilliant colour selection. And I know what you mean about the self conscious lens malarkey. I'm used to it now. I'm busy pushing the boundaries with public crochet and knitting - while WALKING.

(there is no dignity).
