Red, 2011

virginia creeper on weathered door


Sometimes the scene is just visually stunning, especially with a little flash of angled late afternoon sun on that bright red Virginia Creeper. Love the peeling paint, the weathered wood, cloudy windows and the door hinge. Yet the plant flashes its brilliance before it fades, while the building simply fades.

This is from several years ago, but each October, on a day as warm as summer, I remember this moment and share it again.

If you’d like a print of this photo it is available in my photography collection in my Fine Art America gallery entitled, simply, “Red”.
