The Hunt for Red Snapper
Since we are spending a week in Miramar Beach, Florida (US), I searched for what was 'red' about the area. Only one consistent result: Red Snapper. This is a favorite white fish in the region and is served in restaurants and homes everywhere.
Thank you to S and the great folks at Shrimpers Seafood Market in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. If you are in the area be sure to visit them: http://www.shrimpersseafood.com
Red is the color at the long wavelength end of the visible spectrum. I dunno what that means but there's so much more to this primary color - it's seen in Nature, in the Animal Kingdom, and in Flora. The Elemental aspects - Fire, Earth, Water, & Sky are often tinged in this shade that is so evocative of emotion. Across cultures, red signifies various aspects of the human condition from anger and intense passion to auspiciousness and good luck. This is a color that binds us through our blood: it doesn't matter what you look like on the outside - we all bleed the same color. Show us aspects of life connected with the color red. Juxtapose your images with well-thought intent and bold emotion. Show us a rounded understanding of how red interacts with complementary colors or other relationships like analogous or split. Show us images that depict EMOTION - rage, love, passion, warmth, celebration, vitality, intensity, and so much more. Let's paint the town red.
