The Red Stand for Ruby Tuesday

Well it’s Tuesday, y’all. Yesterday I wrote about how I like to take photos everywhere I go, with an eye out for something to use in one of the photo memes I like to participate in. Yesterday’s photo was a macro shot of my food in Key West that I took for Macro Monday. On the same trip to Florida last month, I snapped this photo with Ruby Tuesday in mind.

This red lifeguard stand was taken at the beach in Siesta Key, Florida. You can read more about the trip we took last month and how Siesta Key has always been on my bucket list here.

I managed to snap some extraordinary photos on the beach at sunset, which I will be sharing in a later post.

I’m submitting this photo for Ruby Tuesday.

For  Ruby Tuesday , you post one of your own  photos that contains something red. It can be a whole lotta red, or a little bit of red. I like the eclectic collection of pictures of anything red,  so I love to play.

Weekend Reflection of a Sandpiper

We took advantage of the warm weather last week and went for a walk at Wrightsville Beach, NC. This is one of the 500 plus photos I managed to snap, while enjoying a Bloody Mary and trying to keep my rottweiler, Hannah, in check. She loves going to the beach, y’all.

I was looking through some of my favorite blogs today and found a new photo meme that is open Friday through Sunday. It’s called Weekend Reflections over at Newtown Area Photos. I immediately decided to enter this.  I think the reflection of the little sandpiper in the water’s edge is stunning, don’t y’all? Click on the link to enjoy lots of other reflections.

Newtown Area Photos features a photo a day of the beautiful area around Newtown, PA. If you want to see more of my photographs of my beautiful hometown, Wilmington, NC, check out my other blog,  Wilmington Daily Photo.

Shadow Shot Sunday – Oak Trees


I started a new blog, called Wilmington Daily Photo. I post a picture daily, of my beautiful, historic, riverfront hometown of Wilmington, NC. This is to participate in The City Daily Photo, which showcases photos of cities all over the world. Nobody was doing Wilmington, and I have a TON of good photos, so I thought, “Why not?”

And I love to log onto The City Daily Photo and see my daily picture of little old Wilmington, NC, right next to the likes of Paris, France, Kuching Malaysia, or Hove, UK. Pretty cool, huh?

So now, everywhere I go, I’m on the hunt for a picture. Because having to have something to post everyday is a daunting task, y’all. In this shot, I was riding in the car, trying to get a shot of some of the old homes downtown. Wilmington has a lot of centuries old oak trees and the shadows they cast are wonderful.

shadow-shot-sunday-logo11Shadow Shot Sunday is a cool idea for a meme that has folks posting photos of shadows, and then linking back to Hey Harriet’s blog so everyone can visit each others pictures. (And leave comments -it’s the blogger’s crack.)
