The Color Red

 RED had used to be my favorite color.  But lately, I'm beginning to have a resurging crush to this hue.

Here's me indulging on the color and revitalizing the red dress gifted by my mom.
 The color red is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. Red is energizing. It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action. The color meaning of red signifies a pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination.
Energy: Red boosts our physical energy levels, increases our heart rate and blood pressure and prompts the release of adrenalin.
Action: it is fast moving and promotes a need for action and movement.
Desire: it relates to physical desire in all its forms- sexual, appetite, cravings.
Passion: it means a passionate belief in an issue or undertaking, including passionate love or passionate hate. Anger is negative passion.

Stimulating: red excites the physical senses - the sexual and physical appetite. It stimulates the deeper passions within us, such as sex, love, courage, hatred or revenge. If you have a flagging sex life and would like to introduce more passion into it, introduce some red into the bedroom - the more red, the more passion, but don't overdo it or it will have the opposite effect.
Exciting and Motivating: red stimulates and excites our emotions and inspires us to take action.
Attention-getting: red demands you to take notice, alerting you to danger. This is why we have red traffic lights and stop signs - it is the universal color for danger.
Assertive and Aggressive: red has a powerful effect on the assertiveness and aggressiveness of everyone. Drivers of red cars should take note! A small survey I did a few years ago showed that drivers of red cars, including females, said they felt quite aggressive behind the wheel of their red car.

Positive keywords include: action, energy and speed, attention-getting, assertive and confident, energizing, stimulating, exciting, powerful, passionate, stimulating and driven, courageous and strong, spontaneous and determined.
Negative keywords include: aggressive and domineering, over-bearing, tiring, angry and quick-tempered, ruthless, fearful and intolerant, rebellious and obstinate, resentful, violent and brutal.

 I am recently learning on how to use the new camera and I'm taking a shot at photography.  But I guess my sister is the one who's learning fast and I may then end up to be just her subject.  All photos taken by my sister.
