I was pretty naive to think that I would be able to find beautiful unencumbered specimens of red at every corner. Would you like to know where red resides in downtown Lakeland? In the signs that read:
For Rent/For Sale
Tow Away at Owner's Expense
Yep. There are not beautiful images of cute cars, winding starways or gorgeous flower boxes for the capturing and that was a little discouraging. After I got past my first shock of how specific this new project really is and realization that I was living in central Florida and not Paris, I buckled down and began to practice my creativity.
Here is what I discovered instead.
By the end, I was really enjoying myself and could have explored every nook and cranny of every stairway and door frame for the color red. This is going to be a tough project, but a rewarding one. The limit of Color Me Lakeland will force me to be truly in tune to my surrounding as I search for color.
