Penzance Red

Another image from Cornwall. The next door neighbours put their towels out to dry and I tried several shots to get it right. It was this one with converging angles that I liked best. The way the large towel hung, it looked a little like a waving flag. The red in flags stimulates the senses, so perhaps this was what happened here, calling me to action to record the image. The fluttering flag is of the air, always set in a high point. Hanging between heaven and earth it both arouses and protects those under it.
