Ruby Tuesday (Mardi rouge)
I offer this week's view for the splendid meme from The Teach, Ruby Tuesday. This week it is the awning on this building in the German city of Cologne (Köln). I like this picture not just for the red, but the different architecture and details that remind one that, like Dorothy said to Toto: "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore". Or Connecticut, for that matter.
This shot was taken from across the street on the promenade at the famed Cologne Cathedral with its immense proportions (twin spires over 500 foot high). A trip taken long ago, when there were still Deutsche Mark, Francs and and Lira in circulation. A beautiful country with excellent food and the absolute best beer in the world. It would be fun to take such a trip again.
