Ruby Tuesday-Irish Reds

We recently spent 11 days in Ireland. It is amazing how when you are a blogger, your idea of picture taking totally changes. I looked for yellows and reds and windows etc. Here are a few of my reds.OK, I know you are all busy checking out everyone's Ruby Tuesday but take the time to bookmark me and drop back to check out my blog. I am a retired Special Ed teacher who now spends most of her time on Sanibel Island, Florida which is a Sanctuary Island for wildlife. I volunteer for a wildlife hospital. I am also the proud grandma of 5 wonderful grandkids and brag about them often!! I also have a blog called Branches and Roots where I talk about genealogy and my ancestors. OK, enough about me. So if you really want to see red go to Work of the Poet

I agree that blogging DOES change one's way of taking photos. And you've proved that's not a bad thing! ;-)

A wide variety of subjects and all gorgeous in red!
I love the white iron and red geraniums and the red doors with the roses overhang.
Wonderful rubies!
My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

Very nice red captures!! I know what you mean about looking for things that pertain to all the memes you participate in, I think it makes me more aware and observant of my surroundings - Happy RT!

My favorite is the doorway with the flowers growing on it's side, it's perfectly framed!

Martha in PA said...

More great door pics, and I LOVE the Funky Skunk. (We've had a skunk in the small patch of woods behind our home and he's funky in another way!) I agree that blogging changes the way you take photos, and photography has changed the way I see life... I look for the small things that other people miss, or things in places that others don't look!

Love the little door to adventure!

Red geraniums
peeking between white rails—
saucy little tarts!



My Ruby Tuesday

Your images are lovely. The shot of the geraniums poking through the white iron grating is especially appealing.

Lovely REDS here ... I especially like the door and the funky sign, but you're right about how blogging alters the kinds of photos I take these days and the ways I 'tag' them for easy retrieval.
Hugs and blessings,

Hello Snow bird, or Sunbird
Love the photos of the red doors, the red flowers and red skunk.
Are these all found on Sanibel Island?
Check out my blog and post for Watery Wednesday. We were married on Sanibel Island, We just loved the beaches and the wildlife sanctuary! Wish I could be on that beach now.

Gorgeous reds! And from far away (sigh)...love the doors.
I agree about our eyes naturally looking for certain colors more than usual.
Thanks for sharing!

Kim said...

perfect Red composition...I particularly love the red doorways...

shopannies said...

the funky skunk is too funny because they are funky or at least they smell that way LOL

The Farmer Files said...
