Ruby Tuesday - State Street Skyline


Ruby Tuesday arrives for our weekly look at red, in large or small doses.


On a trip to Boston earlier, plenty of rubies were all about. Our hotel was in the heart of Boston’s Financial District along State Street. From wheelchair height, the skyline, while not as full as Manhattan, is quite impressive.


Not deep in a ruby hue, yet the variety of reds from roofs, brick and window surrounds appear under the nice blue Sunday sky. This is not the touristy part of the Hub, so Sunday morning there were few persons around, and the multitude of pubs with Irish names weren’t yet open. So photo meme hunters could fire away...


Ruby is all about, so visit Mary’s excellent meme to see plenty more!

Boston can be so amazingly quiet on a Sunday in the downtown. I love all the old buildings and the varied architecture. The bit of tree at the left warms up all the urban.

Thanks so much for your beautiful words, Ralph. You do so have a way with them, you know. I am thinking you might have been meant to write great stories...or books..ever thought of it?
