What red means to me

I was frustrated with this one but gave it a shot any way. I really wanted to do a picture with out any red in it but that turned out to be more difficult than I thought.
But I was determined and by the end of the day I had nothing great, so this is what I have....
I wanted to capture what the color red really means and I found out it means a lot. Red means warning, stop, danger, yield, sickness, death, embarrassment, anger, hot, sin......but my favorite meaning of this color is LOVE.

And so I settle for this simple picture. My sweet daughter, whom I love more than myself, with her chubby hands shaped as a heart near her heart.

this is really such a great take on the challenge, i love it since RED is totally a color of love! This is a cool picture, the hands are so crisp and vivid... good job!

Ahhhh so sweet! I'm impressed by the perfect heart shape. I've tried that before but never had any success. Love the neutral colors in this pic, the black, grey and skin tone. Simple but stunning.

Great job finding a picture that's not actually the color red! You should print this to put in your daughter's room... it's so cute! :)

I find it interesting that you did it with the hand like that and with the black heart. Black vs red is an interesting thing to me.

This is so cute--simple and sweet, and I would say it's a PERFECT take on the challenge. Way to think outside the box!
