161/366 - Crosswalk

2012.06.09
pixel
This homeless man's bright red sweater stood out so vividly as he crossed the street - even though the red traffic signal said, "NO!"

Lesson Learned: Life is a crosswalk on a busy street - so wear the red of your uniqueness and passion so that you can be seen more easily.

Red In The Crosswalk

In the crosswalk…
Against the signal’s authority
“Auchtung!”, it says…
“Verboten - you in red…”

“See MY red.”
“Heed MY red.” then…
From behind – prodding, daring
“Go! Go! Go! ”

Across the divide – pleading…
“Come. Come. Come.”
“You - reddest of the red…”
“Deliver your daring red.”


“This monochrome place…
Where all is slightly the same –
And only rarely very different…
Needs your reddest red – Godspeed…”

Ryana Red, a color that people apply/ wear if they feel really confident about themselfs ... is said by psychologists ...

Annbramwell I love the editing in this shot, and isn't it nice to buck the trend every once in a while, even if it is only to cross the road on a red light... good on him, people are all too ready just to be sheep.... Baaaaa!
