Travelling in Drop of Water on the Rose-Colored Snow

If Miro's Drop of Water on the Rose-Colored Snow were a place, it would be.....

Beijing, China!

It was so clear to me that Miro's beautiful painting should be linked to Beijing. That bright, brilliant, Chinese red. Love. And, with Lunar New Year upon us, it couldn't be more appropriate. Miro even includes a star, much like that on the Chinese flag

The images here are from all over Beijing and all red. It was quite easy editing out all of the dominantly red one's, the color is everywhere in Beijing. Color has strong meaning and symbolism in China with red having particular significance for luck, hence the reason we see it so much during Chinese New Year.
