According to photographers Kevin Clarke and Horst Wackerbarth, it began with nothing more than "...an eight-foot, two-hundred-pound red velvet couch..." but after several interesting episodes with it, they got an odd notion, packed up the couch, then used it as an element in each photo they took in a trip across America, a journey that resulted in The Red Couch, A Portrait of America. Every photo in the book is beautiful, the red couch augmenting the scenes, making them more beautiful or rugged or idyllic.

I was given this book at the same time MoonGypsy suggested we do a challenge with a single-color theme. "Good idea," I thought, then glanced at the book sitting on my desk. The color would be red.


So, thanks to MoonGypsy and a peculiar book, we'll be concentrating on red for the next two weeks. Red hair isn't red, so forget that one, and unless the word "red" is printed in red, you can forget that too. We're talking about hue, making it the subject of the photo or using it to focus in on the subject. It doesn't matter if everything or just a tiny portion of your photo is red. What does matter is that, in some way, everyone knows you were thinking RED when you took the picture.

As long as it's not something I've posted in the other forums during the last two weeks I'm not overly concerned.
So can I make a suggestion, one that has already been made? I don't know if you have a list of challenges or if you pick one at the last moment. But if you do have a list could you show us the top four or something? I'm just thinking how horrible it would be to go somewhere and then come back to see a challenge set that you could have succeeded in if you'd have taken a picture of the place where you were. Or to post a picture a in a forum a week before the challenge just to find out that if you'd have held back you could have posted it in this forum.
