Ruby Tuesday - Fun is as Fun Does


Ruby Tuesday is fun, the quest for rubies never a chore.

If the archives are reviewed from time to time, ruby gems may be unearthed. Such as once little Allegra at age 7 (1996). We are at my sister Michele's July 4th picnic, a yearly treat with lots of food and a short walk to see the neighboring town's fireworks.

Allegra seems pleased with a camera nearby, and poses without prompting. Red and derivatives of that hue are all about the scene.
The girl covers a range of rubies from the barrette, top and Minnie Mouse bow and hearts. As well as those in the background bereft of poses...

Fun abounds at Mary's great meme!

I always love kid's snapshot photo anytime than the professionally taken. The snapshot always bring the real smile. :)

Allegra's smile certainly fits her beautiful name!

I love how happy, self-assured children never hesitate to ham it up for the camera!

Happy RT, Ralph!

What a cool picture!

Allegra, as it happens, is my (and Pagan Sphinx's) younger daughter's age, so I can just imagine the changes you have gotten to watch in the years between then and now.

It's lovely, isn't it?

The little one has such a gorgeous big smile! That must be a sign of happiness! And love the touch of red top left to contrast with the little one's pretty blonde hair!

I wonder what it is about a camera that brings out those big smiles? Lovely - thanks.

Mirage said...

Minnie and Mickey might wear gray and blue but I've always associated them with red! Love her smile by the way.....thanks to photographs, we can look back on those years. ;)

It's always fun to see your family photos from when the kids were younger and this view of Allegra is charming.
Hugs and blessings,
