Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Colour of Your Choice


My Choice is Red

Red is my favourite colour so of course, I could not resist using it for this challenge. Just for fun, I decided that all my pictures would be vehicle-related and the reddest reds  I could find.

The featured image is an old South Australian railcar, these were a maroon colour when new. We called them Redhens for a weird South Australian reason.

Scarlet Ferrari

I know Ferrari’s come in other colours but if they are not red what is the point?

I think it is a shame that Virgin no longer paints their jets red.

Taswegian1957

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
