Red is My Favorite

When I was a little girl I had this red dress. I wanted to wear it every day. Me and my red dress and my cray curly mop that no one could put a brush through (because I never sat still long enough to allow it). When someone would ask me what my favorite color was I would say "red like blood!" - "rojo come la sangre!"

I still love red. I love how wearing it makes me feel and I love the look of my red suede chair in my office. I also look for it when I'm out photographing. I look for it in the details of the places that I visit. In Italy you see it everywhere and not just in the bold hues of the Chiantis, Brunellos, Barolos and the Cabs. You see it everywhere in the quiet streets of all the cities and all the towns...at least the ones we visited.

Red is the color of life. And, I love that.

Today's soundtrack: We heard this song every other minute on the radio while we were driving through Tuscany. Funny because we were hoping to hear mostly Italian and we did...so it was all Italian artists and Chris Martin.
