The Color Red… Vitality—Courage—Strength

The Color Red: Glass Works 17

Colors are known to invoke an emotional response, impact mood, and even have healing powers.

Vitality, courage, and strength are all attributes of the color red.

Red is the color of lovers. Think Valentine’s Day, romance, passion and excitement.

Red is also the color of intensity, fierceness, fire and blood.

Red stirs our emotions, stimulates us to action, and fills us with energy.

In healing, red counteracts anemia, lack of energy, impotence, and low blood pressure.

As a photographer, I challenged myself to create images that featured a dominant color chosen for its beneficial characteristics.

I hope I have captured red’s energy in, “Waterfall,” and red’s strength and vitality in “Glass Work 17.”

Please take a closer look at larger versions of these photographs by following the links listed below.

Stay tuned—I’ll be featuring more images and their good-for-the-soul color characteristics in future posts.
