Ruby Tuesday - Orleans Scramble



Ruby Tuesday is a fun meme hosted by Mary in NYC. The look of a lot or a little red is the mere requirement. I am not sure that this qualifies as either. However, it is attention getting to say the least.


The place is a cloudy and overcast day on Cape Cod. This was scanned from a print that was photographed on a quiet day at the beach.


Minus the crowds of sun worshipers, the beach is practically ours alone. Given the blue-gray misty clouds and sepia sand, the monochrome  look is apparent. 


Yet the youngster clad in red stands out so well, the ruby blur is of Cameron running for the photographer, most likely Patti (power wheelchairs and sand do not mix well :)


Thus, the brilliance of ruby overtakes all the bland aspects of a cloudy day at the beach...Visit Mary for more ruby views.

I do enjoy your olden photos, Ralph.
Great memories for you.
We have always lived on the plains of West Texas, hundreds of miles from beach and water. Naturally, as we always WANT what we don't have, I've dreamed of living close to a white, sandy beach.
Hope your week will be blessed.

I usually point out that West Texas has lots of beach, not a lot of water, but lots of beach.

The red shirt brighten the picture near as much as the smile, grin, and the shirt is an artifact, too.
