Red is the great clarifier bright and revealing. I can't imagine becoming bored with red. It would be like becoming bored with the person you love.
~Diana Vreeland

I'm partial to red in photos and paintings, and I agree, it's *never* boring.

In each of the items you've included today, red draws your eye. In the portraits, you look at the face first, then the red is next.
