WHEN I PHOTOGRAPH car shows, I find myself drawn to red vehicles.
For one, the color red pops in photos.
But, I’m also wondering if red cars are more common? Is that why, when I scroll through frames from the June 19 Faribault Car Cruise Night, that I notice lots of red vehicles in my photos.
Even red Harley Davidson motorcycles. Bikes ended the parade.
When I think of a red vehicle, I think of speed. And being a bit show-offy.
I think of youth. Although that’s not necessarily accurate. How many guys have purchased red cars during the stereotypical mid-life crisis? Maybe you don’t want to answer that question. Red, I suppose, looks good on anyone, no matter their age.
Red seems an attention-grabbing hue. A good color choice for on-the-road visibility.
Whether a vehicle is fire-engine red or a shade muting more to maroon, the undertones will always catch my eye. There’s just something about red…
TELL ME: Have you ever owned, or do you own, a red vehicle or shade thereof? What’s your color preference in a vehicle? And why?
