The Colour Red Around the World

I wanted to title this ‘Paint the Town Red’ and have a gallery of buildings painted red.

However, I found that hardly anyone paints an entire building red, at least not the bright red I was thinking of. So here, instead, are small exclamation points of red.

  1. Great idea to pick a colour theme. We had visitors who arrived complaining about their hire car – I am not interested in cars, but this one was a beautiful burnt orange and went with our red garden gates – of course I had to get my camera out!
