Red Dress Dash I





The Red Dress Dash was held last night in Naples, Florida, as part of the American Heart Association's national campaign, Go Red For Women.  Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer of women?

The Naples event was held on Fifth Avenue, the heart of shopping and dining in Naples.  The Calendar Girls entertained.  The event culminated in a dash down the street.  One of the photographers inadvertently led the race.  Where was his red dress?

Wow, this 1st photo is stunning!!!

Naples boasts some rather good-looking' women! Yesterday was the first time I heard about this day, calling attention to heart disease in women. And, yes, I did know about the health hazard...scares me. I didn't bring anything red to SC with me but I promptly went out and bought a very nice red t-shirt to recognize the day. Looks pretty good on me altho I wouldn't want to try to complete with those lovely belles of the South in the top photo!

He looks quite frightened by the ladies following him!

RamblingRound said...

Yes, I think the photographer is afraid of all those red-dressed women!

Thank goodness!

This is faaaaaantastic. I love your shots (the photographer looks terrified!).
When I looked in my closet yesterday for something red to wear, I found one thing: a Spongebob Squarepants t-shirt. This must be remedied.

Now, that's fun! :-)

Absolutely wonderful captures!

Bob Crowe said...

That's very weird. The second picture reminds me of one of the last scenes in Monty Python's Meaning of Life.

Stefan Jansson said...

Running for his life that guy, Cool looking ladies running for a good cause here.

Your second pic is very cool. Love that everyone appears to be streaking in motion, except for the photographer who also seems to be frozen.

Virginia said...
