We don’t have a lot of red in this house. (Well, not counting the uninspiring jumble of plastic fantastic toys).

And this house is where I’ve spent 95% of my time this week – as I work from home and it’s been one of those weeks with teething babies, children off preschool, and me left wondering how on earth I will meet all my deadlines.

I haven’t allowed myself much time to stop and focus on the small things. So for a second, I was feeling at a bit of a loss when it came to my red captures.

And then I remembered two things we do have in the house, that we use every single day, and are most definitely red.

And as both objects’ primary function is to get you movings, it seemed like the right thing that we should take the hint to leave the house and go for a walk – me, with my battered old Converse, and a boy on his trusty red bike.









Now it’s time for a new colour. Starting today, we are capturing green.

Here are the other bloggers taking part, take a look at how they’ve been capturing colour this week:

  1. I really love the shot of your little guy on his bike, staring off into the distance. It’s perfect, at first my focus was on what he must be looking at and then I noticed the red. Love it!

    1. Hehe, he was actually throwing a bit of a strop because I’d challenged him to see if he could ride his bike along the straight line on the pavement – and then he realised he’d been duped for photo-taking purposes!

  2. I know that feeling of thinking you have nothing in the house to photograph, but it’s a great excuse for a walk and I LOVE your picture of the bike against the fence! 🙂

    1. Thanks Clare. It’s good that this project is inspiring me to actually get out and THINK about what I’m photographing, rather than quick snaps of the kids all the time.

    1. I think they look better when they are well-loved! (Or at least, that’s what I’ll keep telling myself, haha).
