. . . shot firecracker red

More pictures from the previously used machine reclamation center, or junkyard, whichever you prefer. Today's pictures feature my favorite color, red. The one above is from a fairly well-preserved train car.

I really had to hunt for signs of decay, but I found some. Isn't the pattern created by the rust amazing. It looks like paisley.

For some reason, this is my favorite. Well, it must be the circular aspect, since I use so many circles as symbols in my painting. Still from the train car.

The pictures above and below are from the junkyard. Who even knows what the original items were?

I have a lot more reds. . . but that's all for today. Happy Independence Day.

I love old broken machine graveyards and I love red. These images are so striking. It's much too hard to pic a favorite. What do you think you'll do with them?

this red is amazing - love each pic! :))))))

I seem to be dittoing Jeane lately---but she is absolutely right! Those reds say "STOP" and literally arrest you in your tracks so that you can't look away.

A question jumps into my consciousness: Are you seeing red? These BLAZE!

I so love rusty metal.

Ms Pirro: I have absolutely no idea what to do with them, other than look at them when I'm stuck for inspiration. What do you think I should do with them?

Thanks, Jeane. Picasa helped with the colors.

Carol: Yeah, baby, I'm seeing red, blazing hot red. Power color, right? Get outta my way. . .

Oh, me, too, Jazz, love it always.
