The colour red has so many powerful associations to it, don’t you agree? I see it as a colour of action / reaction, definitely intense and strong. Although this photo is so blurry, I wanted you to see the cute row of pompoms.

Even before the Season of Fairytales, red is a colour associated with these stories…as much as for Red Riding Hood’s cloak, as the Red Queen having the roses painted and as Snow White and Rose Red.

‘Savoure le rouge’ means savour the red, from a song by Indochine.

And here we are, referencing fairytales again!

Blood is also red. 

The word ‘crimson’ is one of my favourite words to say. I love how it sounds when I say it. I had a red series in my big Moleskine and it was all about the current state of affairs in the US and it is still relevant today.

I don’t know why this image called for some Eminem lyrics, but there you have it.

As a final page, I added these red stickers I had on hand. Red is also associated with love, after all!
