The Red Queen

Dug this one up from the archives. This shot dates back to 2010 and was taken with my very first DSLR camera, the Canon 500D. The image was part of a street photography exercise when I was taking a beginners course in digital photography.

On the day, there were some sort of celebrations taking place in the grounds of the Madrasah Aljunied Al-Islamiah near Arab Street. This damsel was part of a group of women all dressed up in similar attire and leisurely walking around the park grounds. The reds aren’t just limited to her dress but also seem to seep through her visage on the lips as well as the rouge foundation.

Her slightly contemptuous glance and regal adornments prompted me to dub her “The Red Queen”. Although I’m sure she must be an angel in person, that title has somewhat stuck ever since I clicked the image.

And with this image I strike off Red from my RainBow Series. Three down. Four more to go. Yay!!
