The one red leaf, the last of its clan
That dances as often as dance it can;
Hanging so light, and hanging so high
On the topmost twig that looks up at the sky.
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge

This is my response to Ailsa’s travel theme red.
Do you like red?
Beautiful! Great minds think alike!
oops I meant gray…
Love the shot of the red leaf… how did you colour the leaf and the rest grat? Very cool!
I use a program called Picasa. It’s a free download. One of the tools allows you to have a b/w focus! Great fun!
I have been using Picasa after you told me about it for watermarking photos. I guess I need to explore it more. Very cool indead! Thanks.
I SO love the photograph with the red maple leaf. Isn’t it a simple but a stunning leaf! Your photograph shows that it is in a league of its own. i also think our Canadian flag with the red maple leaf is one of the most beautiful flags in the world. Thank you!
I love red! Great photos for the theme, Jennifer. My favourite is the masked guy in the red jacket! Gotta love a man in uniform 😉
LOL! It’s actually a big stuffed bear. No real man was forced to wear that costume!
hahaha – have you seen my other blog? http://www.flyingsouthforthewinter.wordpress.com
I have yes! I love Edward on the Great Ocean Road!
Red is the catchiest color, isn’t it?
Good work, Jennifer!
The red leaf is superb as is the poem to suit.

We use Picasa as well as our family, easy to work with and yes it is free! Great value! I did not know about all of the features! Wow I thought there was a man in a moose costume, the hot weather here must be affecting me!!! Sorry
Red is one of my very favorite colors, I love all of the pictures, especially with the man in the moose costume! The red tomatoes are fabulous! The leaf against the white background , amazing! You are so talented! Have a beautiful day! May God Bless!
A post showing just how well red you are! 🙂
Red Jacket used to be known as a Red Indian, right? Dunno why the term was considered derotatory. In playing Cowboys and Indians in my youth the preferred role was Indians.
I’m pretty sure Red Jacket is/was his tribal name.
Ha! I was going to ask the same question Jennifer. I love it! And the guy in the red jacket.
Nice pictures, fun!
Thank you beautiful lady! 🙂
Awesome! How did you get the tomatoes to show up red and the rest of the photo in black and white? I have wanted to do something similar with my photos but don’t know how. Really cool effect and I love your reds!
What program do you use to edit your photos? I use Picasa, it’s a free download and fun to use! There is a tool in Picasa called focal black & white; where you can put any size of circle into colour and the rest of the photo b&w.
Wow that is cool…free and fun! I use Lightroom and am loving it. I can’t believe the difference in my photos. And, I hardly even know how to really truly use it yet. But I love this feature of black and white and a color so I’m going to download Picassa and give it a whirl. Another absolute favorite of mine is Snapseed. It is amazing, especially the “Dramatic” feature. I use it a lot on my photos. 🙂
All are fabulous. My fave is the tomatoes.
Wow, fantastic photos, really impressive! I love the first one of the leaf, great work! G 🙂
Thank you kindly! Red is my least favourite colour!
