photo hunt: r e d

themes · home ·


This week's theme is red. I have a tiny, new Christmas ornament (is all what my storage space currently allows!) and I thought I would show it off. That's the above picture. And then I remembered:
The one and only Little RED riding hood!!


This is a lovely sculpture of our Little RED Riding Hood, aka Caperucita Roja (Spanish), Rotkäppchen (German), located at a tiny traffic circle or roundabout in a community near Barcelona. I wish the environment was a bit more appropriate ( a large park, for example) but it has traditionally been here for ages, it was gone as progress came to town and new buildings were built but it was recovered in 1995, according to the metal plate you see below the sculpture.

  1. the "little red riding hood" photo is such a clever take on this week's theme. if I were in your place it wouldn't cross my mind because she's not actually red. nice one!

  5. It's a shame she's not in a park...or near the woods. But at least lots of people get to see her.

    That photo is really gorgeous, you've done a MARvelous job with it. Exactly the right angle and close up. Really well done. I'm jealous ;-)

    ...and the little red riding hood is called Rödluvan in Swedish, it means simply: Redhood.

  49. What a cute little statue ! It's amazing that it is just in Spain. In Italian it's called Capucetto Rosso very similar to the spanish language.

    BTW Today I take the Cyber Cruise members on a convoy through the Egyptian desert. So if you want to warm up yourself hop over !

  58. Love the little red heart! And what a neat statue of little red riding hood. I agree, it would be a lot nicer in a park. But hopefully it brings a smile to those passing by.
