CDP Theme Day - RED!


Today is the first of the month, so it's Theme Day for City Daily Photo Bloggers all over the world. Today we are all seeing red! Well this theme has my name written all over it! I had quite a few to choose from of course, but decided to share this one. This is the old caboose, right off the tracks where the Irondale Chamber of Commerce hangs out. It was great fun to photograph, in fact I have a few more to sprinkle around in days to come.

My fellow bloggers have some terrific photos to share. Please give them a visit.

Great work on lines Virginia. I look forward to your other entries later in the week too. Red is a wonderful theme, isn't it?

Jilly said...

A marvellous post for today Virginia. A real photographers's entry I'd say! Bravo.

Super, super image Ms. V. Your composition just sings. Circle, triangle square rectangle color line form perfection.

I love the narrow depth of field, how it nearly obliterated the lines behind. Nicely done!

Trains are endlessly fascinating, ask any kid young or old. Red photographs so well!

Mister Earl said...

I heard you had a nice caboose.

B SQUARED said...

Don't see many of them anymore. A good choice for Theme Day.

Halcyon said...

We knew you wouldn't have a problem with this theme day! Great choice.

Yvi said...

Great red shot! ;-)

Daily Chicago Photo said...

Great photo, lighting and composition. And red cabooses aren't as common as they used to be.

Mary said...

Mais oui Monsieur Earl...she DOES have a nice caboose. Virg, this is one of your best photos ever; I can just see it blown up on a stretched canvas in a child's room or in a contemporary restaurant!

Louis la Vache said...

Neat shot, Virginia! You have a fine eye for composition, joyfully on display here!

Daryl said...

Fabulous . and the touch of yellow, the blue sky and puffy clouds ... aces!

Chug a chug a choo choo! Happy RED theme day, V!

altadenahiker said...

Wow.

Jacob said...

Just lovely, V. At first I thought it was a porthole on some kind of vessel...I should get my caboose kicked!

Victor said...

Nice one V! Simple is good and you really got it working for you on this image. Bravo!

Bob Crowe said...

You've shown me this picture before but I like it more the more I see it. Simple, strong graphics, obviously a real object but, without your note, the viewer has a "whazzat?" reaction. It reminds me of one of my favorite contemporary painters, James Rosenquist. Might not be up your alley. At all.

Thérèse said...

A very dynamic Red certainly well deserved by this caboose.

Marie-Noyale said...

I am a big fan of Geometry!
and love red almost as much as you do!..

Bibi said...

Gorgeous colors and I especially like the composition.

Petrea said...

That's minimalist magic, V.

Maya said...

Hahaha! Did they consult with you before picking this theme? I like the yellow with the red.
