I know I said no more red, but I came across this last weekend in London and couldn't resist!  A gigantic accident with the paint tin.

What a beautiful accident. I have no complaints about more red - keep going!
anniedog: Thanks very much Jewlya - I expect there will be more occasional reds in the near future.

Well spotted Ingrid, love the leaves, nice composition the feet add interest.
anniedog: The leaves were there just as you see them - nothing disturbed or moved, so the composition was already there - I just had to put my feet in the right place!

This looks a little disturbing to me as if the sidewalk sustained a mortal wound. The clean matter of fact shoes make a startling contrast. This certainly stirs the imagination!
anniedog: Thanks for your perceptive comment Martin.
Ingrid
This is a great one. Like a collage.
anniedog: I never thought of that, but yes it is. Thanks for the comment.

I like the splash of colour and the leaves...and your boots give a great contrast!
anniedog: Thank you Mine - I can't understand how they look so clean and shiny!

Wow! Nice series. Love the contrast between different surfaces from red paint to black asphalt to leaves and then obviously your boots.....nice composition
anniedog: Thanks Richa - that red paint is something else, isn't it?!

You have eyes everywhere Ingrid, like the contrasting colours, and those boots are made for walking!!!LOLtonguetongue
anniedog: Mostly down on the ground these days! Thanks for your nice comment, Tracy. BTW, have got a good (but rude!) joke for you but it's on my phone, so will email it when I can.

I LOVE this Ingrid. I have a similar thing with yellow lines but I'm going to chuck them because yours are so much better
anniedog: Thanks Chris. You shouldn't chuck them out - let's see them! Have confidence in your work!
Ingrid
There's nothing wrong with red. I like the photo a lot.
anniedog: thanks very much, Mary.

You are so lucky that some one dropped the RED paint (how much did it cost you)I love the leaves with it, nice composition and a great find, beautiful coloring.
anniedog: As if I would pay someone to set up a shot - the very thought of it! Thanks for your kind words.
Ingrid
If you stand there long enough Ken Livingstone comes along in his van and clamps you!
anniedog: I didn't hang round long enough to find out! I don't want to get a reputation for hanging round street corners.
Ingrid
Another great addition to the series. The leaves add a pleasing counterpoint.
anniedog: Thanks Ian - I was pleased about the leaves. It's all down to the positioning of the feet!
Ingrid
A very generous accident for you Ingrid. I like it very much
anniedog: thanks Richard - it's not one you come across every day. I guess it was the people who paint the red lines on the side of the roads.
Ingrid
This is fascinating. I love this series and it is potentially endless. However, Ingrid, I can't see you going down the Russell Higgs route.
anniedog: It is potentially endless, but I restrict myself to doing it on visits to London, a) because I always have my little camera with me and b) because nobody knows me there! I don't think Russell Higgs has got anything to worry about.
Ingrid
I am glad you did not resist posting this! What a great shot. Fabulous textures and colours - the red, of course, but those leaves, too. (:o)
anniedog: Thanks Roz - glad you appreciate all the little details. I must say I was rather pleased with it myself!
Ingrid
It's those 3 leaves that make this.
anniedog: Yes, they were a lucky find.
Ingrid
VEry interesting shot.
anniedog: Thanks very much for your comment.
Ingrid
This looks like death on the doorstep!!!!! ... I think the paint splodge on its own has more mileage without the burden of the leaves...but heck keep them sexy boots ...smiles richard
anniedog: Thanks Richard - I do have other ones without the leaves - one with some rather offensive words which I thought I better not post! The sexy boots will stay (just for you!)
Ingrid
Oh no, red again........smile
I love this two shoes theme you have.
anniedog: Yes, sorry, couldn't resist! Glad you like the concept.

So that's where my tin of red paint went! I don't know, I leave you alone for an hour, and you spend the time photographing your feet. Strange lady ;o)
anniedog: I can just imagine how fed up you would get if I did it when you were around!
Ingrid
Have you got special red detecting glasses?
anniedog: Now that would be good! My red radar is always on alert when going about town.

Nice little series Ingrid, keep on looking down.
anniedog: I will Les, but sometimes I think I must be missing things on a higher level!

Ohhh yes, I think you can see why I like this, knowing you have seen some of my pics smile
anniedog: It's certainly worthwhile keeping your eyes to the ground - you never know what you might see.

Effin' brilliant.

What a great job spotting the chance and getting the stance.

smile
anniedog: Thanks Lori - always got my head down looking for inspiration!
