Ruby Tuesday



I thought I'd tell you about the rules of RUBY TUESDAY again because there are some new people who aren't sure about them. They are real simple:

On Tuesdays you can post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED.

I will post a NEW Ruby Tuesday each Tuesday.

Your photo can contain lots of RED

or a little bit of RED

My post for today is photographs from my vacation in the Dominican Republic in 2006.

An Asian restaurant on the premises of the Paradisus Hotel.

A downpour in the middle of the day. That thingy in the middle of the picture catches the water from runoff on the roof in each individual cup which spills over into the next one. All the water then empties into the RED bucket. There's another thingy in the background of the picture. They act like leaders or downspouts but they are very pretty.



When you've posted your Ruby Tuesday post come back here and enter your name in Mr. Linky.

These are wonderful, so enjoyable. All sorts of interesting details.

I've been looking forward to your putting up the Ruby Tuesday post! I guess in my eagerness I get to go first. I've been playing with my camera.

Hi Mary -- I am not sure this will be habit forming. Also it is on my regular blog.
I haven't been to the Dominican Republic, thanks for the pictures.

That red fence is awesome i bet that was a fun trip to the DR Is this what most of it looks like?

Ralph said...

The red colors seem to contrast mightily with the tropical green of Dominica.

Looks like a great place to enjoy an authentic ice cold Dominican El Presidente lager!

Mimi Lenox said...

Oohh.....I love your new header. I'm playing this week. Getting it ready now. Of course I'm changing the picture a million times.
I'll be back!

Ivanhoe said...

Your new header is awesome - keep them coming :o)
Have a wonderful Tuesday, teach!

Looks like a great spot. I love all the red...
have a great Tuesday!

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Love the restaurant photo! It is so ornate and red is suppose to be very lucky.

Mimi Lenox said...

I love the richness of these colors and the thought of the water trailing from cup to cup to cup.....

Bobbie said...

I had to chuckle at your Asian restaurant in Dominican Republic. As Jerry and I have traveled around the world, we always look for Asian restaurants -- and especially Chinese restaurants -- wherever we go. We have learned that we can always count on getting a good meal at one of those, no matter where they are located.

Happy Ruby Tuesday.

Geraldine said...

Your photos are lovely Mary! Great choice for this week's Ruby offerings. Hope you enjoy mine too.

Mary, I have never visited the Dominican Republic but it sure looks like a place that would speak to my spirit with so much radiant red!!

Chica said...

This is my first time entering. happy Ruby T to everyone! :)

Raven said...

Well, I merged Ruby Tuesday with Creative Photography this week. I hope that's alright.

That restaurant looks lovely. I found myself wanting to stop and have a nice meal at that restaurant.

Yrsa said...

It is interesting with this type of restaurants: they look the same and are very recognizable anywhere in the world.

Also thankyou for the idea with Ruby Tuesday :) It always adds inspiration when there is a oal like this :)

Yrsa said...

And of course: a GOAL

Carletta said...

Hi Mary,
That first photo is gorgeous!
I love that idea of the little cups. I can just imagine watching the water drop from cup to cup.
Wonder if I can do that to one of my drain pipes - ha!

jientje said...

So many players already!!! Wow!
I'm a fan too, so I played again this week!
Those are both beautiful pictures of a very special and exotic place!
I love the water in the second one!
I have only one picture this week, I think it has to stand on it's own!
See you!

Your Pal Pinki said...

Fantastic, and so very lucky!!! : )

Life Through A Lens said...

Beautiful - I want to go on a vacation to the Dominician Republic now AND have some Chisnese food on my way =)

The last time I've been to the DR is ages ago... before the little ones' were born.

Have a great Ruby Tuesday!

Sanni

P.S.: My "Red" is a lonely little one today.

Alice - I Was Born2Cree8 said...

Great photos, Teach. I'd love to visit the Dominican Republic... and a bunch of other cool places, haha.

I've posted my first RT!

quilly said...

That little cup waterfall is charming! Something like that would work so well here to stop the water from cascading off the roofs and be decorative at the same time.

I have joined your little group. I tired to join last week, but was too swamped. I have tomorrow off, so I should have plenty of time to visit others.

Reba @ Reba's Run said...

Whoof!! Do they allow dogs there where you took those purty piktures? It looks like a real nice place.

My first Ruby Tuesday is up... well, it's kind of more a Reba Tuesday, but oh well. Arf, arf.

Greyscale Territory said...

What beautiful, bright images! The Dominican Republic looks like a very "alive" place!

Gayle said...

Ooooo, I want to make one of those in my livingroom. The sound of running water is so calming..and that is so cool. Great Ruby Tuesday.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Wow, I would love to have one of those in the garden.

I have Ruby Phlox today and a picture of our new pup (not red :lol:)

Robin said...

I love those downspout cups - so much prettier than a plain ordinary gutter.

I'm happy to be joining all of you with a red photo of my own this week.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

This is such an inviting photo. Makes me want to have a cup a green tea. ;-)

Dianne said...

What a beautiful place!

I love how Ruby Tuesday is growing!! Makes for more wonderful photos to see and great blogs to visit.

Thanks Mary :)

Sassy Mama Bear said...

Great post as usual, I have been sending people your way who want to share photos, hope you get some new faces....ruby red is just not my color.
I do love that oriental decor.

Amber Star said...

Ack...I signed up before I got my red post up. It will be up in a nano second. oops...

Amber Star said...

I'm all legal on the red post now.

Those little things that run the water to the pots are fantastic! There has been a lot of interest in reclaiming rain water in barrels again. I'm up for that if there is a "dunk" for mosquitos in the barrel.

My little blog is here

chaviva said...

What a stellar idea! I'm all in :)

Mimi Lenox said...

I cannot find the code for Ruby Tuesday at Mr. Linky. Can you advise or send the code? Thank you, Professor.

Patti said...

Hi Mary! finally here to join the fun.

Thanks for hosting, as always ;-)

Patti said...

P.S. Forgot to comment on your interesting red photos from this tropical restaurant. Must have been a fun vacation.

My Ruby Tuesday

Askew To You said...

Lovely restuarant. How was the food? I hope it was an enjoyable vacation.

I've got a few shots of my guy's son, Owen up. He's a charmer.

juliana said...

enjoyed these :)

Babs (Beetle) said...

Lovely photographs. The fence reminds me of an old 'Steam Train' station ;O)

I am a bit late today. I almost missed it!

the teach said...

Wow! Ruby Tuesday is doing so well! I promise I'll get around to visiting all of you certainly by tomorrow...

If you haven't visited some of the people who are participating in Ruby Tuesday, please try to get around to some of the posts. We all like visitors and comments! :)

Geraldine said...

Wow...this is an impressive response Mary! You've certainly struck a chord with many readers. I look forward to your next visit to MPP too. It was fun to have some new (and of course repeat) readers at my blog today, such fun!

Hugs, G

Kerslyn on Life's Lessons said...

Hi Ms. Mary! I love the photos which reminds me of my favorite Chinese restaurant. My entry is up! Better late than never...LOL.

Felisol said...

Dear "Teach",
I liked your Ruby Tuesday game,
and your classy pictures from the Dominican Republic.
Never been there, nor is it on my 20 first "wanna visit list". Eating Chinese, however, is at least a once a month thing.
Even here in Norway the Chinese are making excellent food. Our little town has two Chinese restaurants, and their equally good, but not so well equipped as your Dominican Chinese restaurant.

Thank you for making this Tuesday a funny one.
From Felisol

Is Jim a great guy?!!!
