"Seeing Red"

This month, I thought we could play a little with color. The challenge is to photograph anything that's red. The interesting part about this is that the color red commands so much attention that you only need a small amount of it to draw your eye. I'm curious to see how you'll choose to balance your red so that it's still clear that your red subject is the dominant element within the image. How much red will there be? How many other colors? How will the red be distributed throughout the image? Will the red have particular meaning (like my mailbox and life buoy images below)?

I look forward to seeing red!
