Lens-Artists Challenge #81: Find Something Red

This week on the Lens-Artist Challenge, we were challenged to “find something red”, which reminded me that it was Chinese New Year this past Saturday and just about everyone I know knows the color red is seen just about everywhere during Chinese New Year – red lantern, lights, red envelopes…
