Rhapsody in red

It's a nice picture of a girl in an orchard in full bloom, and the red parasol really stands out. Still, what's so special about it, why did I want to include it in the blog? Well, it was taken in 1907 by Louis Lumière, and it is one of the very first colour photographs made with a commercial camera (link).
