Red Squirrel

Filed under: Rex — Rex @ 20:04

Red Squirrel Café, where the role model for Basil serves.



  1. In some ways I like this: the darkish greens and the blood red seen through a water curtain, and the mountain partially hidden by the parasol; in others not so much: the grouping of parasols, telephone box and railings doesn’t quite work out in the composition. However, there is a good sense of the glories of a snowy winter being washed away and the colours have a distinctive look.

    I do distrust theme trails though…

  2. There’s something sinister about that foremost umbrella, like something from ‘Attack of the Umbrella People.’ The rain contributes to the dark feel of this.

  3. Some spacing between each rusty red item may not of been possible but it is something I am looking for.
    The colour palette and rain drops are perfect.

  4. I’d like to see Basil, attacking a car with a shrub, or not.

  5. I like it a lot but I’m weird. Something of a perfect cafe day. Looks something like a Martin Parr in the rain. I like the way the foreground unbrella breaks up the two contrasting views.

  6. I like it a lot — maybe that means I’m weird, too. Very atmospheric and the colors are wonderful.

    Though the color and feel are different, this reminded me of a rainy day at the Pier in St. Petersburg. ;-)

  7. An interesting use of the central line. My tidy mind wants to move the other red components out a bit to create some traditional balance – but in fact it is fine the way it is.
