Ruby Tuesday



Hi again my friends! Welcome to Ruby Tuesday!

Here are
shoutouts to Ruby Tuesday participants from last week (June 30). These are thumbnails of a few of the photos posted last week:

Across from LaGuardia Airport is a small, public boat slip that anyone can use to launch a boat or a jet ski. I asked the guy in the photos if I could take his picture while he got ready to buzz out onto Flushing Bay. He said sure. It was late in the day.

I watched for about a half hour because that's how long it took them to get the jet ski and themselves ready to take off.

I had completely forgotten that I was there to shoot photos of airplanes coming in for a landing at LaGuardia.

We had a Happy fourth of July (Break fast) too

Jim said...

Hi Mary, you are looking good here. Were you offered a ride in that little red jet ski?
I am glad you found a red airplane for us.
:-)
For our 4th we had lunch in Pearland, Texas, with a couple of families visiting from Spain. We had been in their homes several times in the past.

Great idea, showing photos from last week. I love your photos, too. Most people don't mind having their photos taken, if you ask first. Good job.

BTW, no Mr. Linky.

Carletta said...

I love the red strips on his Jeep -wonder if matched them on purpose. :)
Great shots Mary!

I'm like Jan - I don't see Mr.Linky either. Will check back.

Thom said...

Wow...nice RT. I've never been on a jet ski but i looks great. I noticed the red on the jeep tires as well. Excelelnt :) Aloha

Ralph said...

Nice nautical treat on the watercraft. I hadn't considered fun in the water in either the East River/Bay or near LGA. Nice Northwest A319 on approach, stylish Jeep. Al are wonderful and eclectic RT pictures!

Ralph said...

PS - Didn't see Mr. Linky. My edible reds are at

Mojo said...

THe red stripe around that rear tire reminds me of the red stripe around Canon's "L-Series" lenses. I only have one of those... but it's SO choice.

Did I miss Mr. Linky? If I didn't and he's AWOL again, my entry's at:

Ruby Tuesday #46: "Remember This?"

But I'll have another look and see if I can locate his sorry butt.

Mojo said...

Oops! I almost missed it! Thanks for the shout out Mary. This week's image is actually similar -- probably taken the same day.

Did you go out to LGA to get something for Carmi's Aviation theme for the week?

ilanadavita said...

Is Mr Linky hiding again?

Those are really cool people - I don't know even how to ride a bicycle! Red is perfect for them - BOLD! Beautiful plane - You managed to get the American Flag perfectly on the plane! I miss flying - I like to be on a road!

What an array of red this week! I watch the ski-doo people on Sanibel, half envious, half fearful. Maybe sometime I will screw up my courage enough to do it!

Happy Tuesday, Mary! Enjoyed your 'transportation' photos this week and the clever bits of red all over the place.

Desert Songbird said...

Thanks for the shout out with the thumbnail! I'm not participating this week, but I'll be back.

The red in your shots stand out since it's somewhat overcast.

Mo said...

I love it that you got so caught up in taking pictures of a secondary subject that you almost forgot why you were there!
Great pics of the jet ski - I admit I've never been on one - and riding one isn't not on my bucket-list, either!
My Ruby Tuesday post is up @ Purrchance To Dream this week.
Cheers,
mo
