Project 64: Red

The color this week over at Project 64 is red.

This is probably one of the few colors that we've had where we all know for certain what it looks like.  There are no surprises when we color on our papers and the crayon and the color on the paper should match pretty well.  In addition, I love red and it would be very easy to find and shoot.  So, an easy week, right?

Of course, it's also Independence Day weekend, and I decided to try to shoot fireworks and get my red there.  It's the first time I have tried to shoot them on manual, and I even brought a tripod.  We went to a very small-town display, so I don't have many grand shots, but I do have a nice one of red that I'm going to use for my red submission here:

I like how it sort of looks red, white and blue, but the smoke is definitely pure red. What is interesting is when I enlarge it on my monitor, it's pretty bright. I didn't expect that.
