Red

It’s been a while since I published a colour post, so it’s that time again.  For this post I am sharing my red travel photos from around the world 🙂

Red is generally a warm and positive colour as well as being associated with energy, love and passion.  Red is also said to be energising and to provide confidence during moments of shyness. However, too much red can mean anger and irritation.  In Chinese culture, red means luck which is why traditionally, Chinese brides wore red. In India, brides also often wear red as it is a symbol of purity.

  1. I loved this post. Will have to check the rest in your series. I felt like the color jumped out of the photos since I had in my mind that the post was about red.
