There are so many shades of red. Here are a few photos of red in its many variations.
There is of course tomato red.
One might call this Doux Chevaux "fire engine red".
There is the bright red of the umbrellas in the market.
The more subtle red of an old door with a beautiful old knocker.
The velvety red of my rose blooming in July.
The flat red of this little gate & shutters set off by all the surrounding green.
The shinny red of the brightly colored pottery sold in the market.
Here is a little still life of many shades of red on my mantel.
The deep dark red of this vintage auto. It is a Simca, which has been preserved in immaculate condition.
The red of chillies & spices, ingredients for a spicy pepper dish.
I hope that the color red is adding a little spice to your life on what is a rather dreary overcast day here in southwest France.
