Ruby Tuesday!



OMG! Today is Tuesday!! Not exactly late for Ruby Tuesday but yes, I'm late!! I should have had the post up yesterday afternoon! But I didn't realize it was Monday, Labor Day! It seemed like Sunday!

Oh dear!!

Well, here's my Ruby Tuesday post. Shots from Brooklyn, New York on Saturday.

Hi there Mary - we all get confuzzled over three day weekends. This is why I think there should be more of them, so we can get some practice and not be so confuzzled any more ;)

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Great pictures Mary! Don't worry, I think the long weekend threw everyone off in one way or another. :P

ellen b said...

:0) Hi Mary! these weeks that start of Tuesday always throw me for a loop. Love those red doors!! I finally got some photos with red in them this weekend...

Heidi said...

I love your porch! I wish mine looked that way. You always find the most enjoyable red. Thanks for hosting today!

storyteller said...

This kind of thing happens to me all the time now that I'm retired. I'm relieved to know all's well! Great perspective on your first photo and kewl Ruby doors ... luv the shadows and the reds in your 3rd photo too. I've shared my Ruby Post at Small Reflections ... still watching TENNIS of course ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Ellie said...

I know - I packed my little one today ready for PE - then realized they have PE on Monday and today is not. I really like the Statue of Liberty photo. Great spot to get the image - the red adds some extra boldness!

Martha said...

Great Red pics, I love red doors. Thank you so much and wishing you a great week.

Kerri said...

Beautiful shots! Have a great week!

JunieRose2005 said...

:) Hi Mary...well- I was wondering...

but just posted on trust that you'd be here! (hoped Ruby Tuesday had not stopped!)

:) I have an OLD shot of NYC-from my ONLY visit there!!

Stephanie V said...

Yeah, it did seem like Sunday didn't it? I like the contrast of the bright red crane and the kind of misty colors.

Hildegarde said...

yes, I like them all three very much. Glad you enjoyed a sunday on monday :-)

Annie said...

I like the muted tones of the reds in the distance. The first, especially, does not feel like NYC at all except that there she is - Lady Liberty.

Heidi said...

Hi Mary,
Today is my first Ruby Tuesday, glad I didn't miss it cause I, too, felt like it was Sunday all day yesterday. Which would make today Monday, of course!
I enjoyed your pictures - spent 10 days in NYC 2 summers ago and loved it.
I want a red front door - maybe that will be my next project?!!
Stop by for a visit-
Hugs
Heidi - Heart and Home

Dianne said...

I never know what day it is!

I love the shadows on the steps, dah stoop as they say ;)

and I love red brick

Robin said...

You know, I spent the first 20-something years of my life in NY and never went to see the Statue of Liberty. Someday I'll have to take my kids there.

Carletta said...

You ARE ok - so good to know!!!
Love these pics but that last one of the steps in the dappled light is awesome!
Have not only a great Tuesday but I nice week as well!

Felisol said...

Dear teach Mary,
The red doors with its fabulous wrought iron work appeals to me.
So majestic.
The shabby cheek entrance also has its charm.
Whilst the Statue of Liberty to many of us simply IS America. Give me your..
Late, but good is a Norwegian expression. Welcome!

Mo said...

Great pictures. I LOVE the red door with the wrought iron hinges. Very cool.
Today sure seems like a Monday to me!
But I did manage to de-fuddle my brain long enough to get a Ruby Tuesday post up @ It's A Blog Eat Blog World AND at Purrchance To Dream!
Cheers,
Mo

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I figured that's what happened. But you are up now, that's what counts. I totally love the red doors. Those hinges are on steroids! Happy four-day week!

I've posted a red, red rose: http://www.artsquadgraphics.com/blog/

Martha in PA said...

LOL, I was hoping that is what happened!

Your photos are great!

Jan's Place USA and Mt Forest Pictures said...

I am ready(have been up since yesterday!) and red!

I wish I could get a picture of the Statue of Liberty.. that would be soooo cool!

G6 said...

I just love how some people make an effort to landscape even their tiniest corner of the city :)

Leora said...

So glad you are OK and were just too busy having fun! Great shots of Brooklyn - who knew it was so beautiful?

Lynn said...

Oh... the doors are incredible... and the steps leading up to the red brick wall-- why, they are just inviting me to come up... SMILE!

Margo said...

I thought yesterday was Sunday too. I think they should move all monday holidays to fridays just for the phsycology of it. I love your Ruby Tuesday pictures - especially the red doors!

Thom said...

I love the first one with the Statue of Liberty in it. That is just awesome. Love them all :)

DrillerAA09 said...

Better late than never. Almost time for Wordless Wednesday!
Very nice photo set.

Mojo said...

I can barely keep up with what day it is when it's not a holiday. This is why I schedule all my posts in advance. Okay, most of my posts in advance.

Love the red doors, they look like they'd be right at home in a Bollywood movie or an old Kung Fu flick.

Happy TUESDAY ---or Monday whatever the case may be.

Ralph said...

I love those 'brownstone' buildings, the brick a dark and always red hue...a nice Tuesday treat on your fine meme!

nonizamboni said...

Great city photos! I posted some cityscapes too.
Know what you mean about the Mon. holiday. . .I'll be confused all week :O)

Auntie E said...

I was starting to wonder if you were doing RT today:-). Love the Statue of Liberty one. Just the hint of red.

Greyscale Territory said...

Love the red door and red textured bricks! Those black flashes on the door really make it stylish!

Terry said...

dear mary t.
i am a little behind schedule today but at least it is still tuesday and a bright and sunny day!
and oh!..it looks like a sunny day in brooklyn too!
mary, do you ever get so accustomed to looking at this great lady that you take it for granted.
She is soooo beautiful!
i guess we take niagara falls for granted sometimes...that's why i am asking.
i think that i would be really touched deep in my heart if i ever laid eyes on this american treasure!
really nice post beloved teach...and i don't think that you were late!
have a good rest of the day ruby tuesday...love terry

Rose said...

I like your red door! I have a red door I will have to remember to use some day.

Rose said...

I also thought yesterday was Sunday, all day long! I just happened to see someone else's RT post to remind me!

Rita said...

I have a cousin that lives in NY> I visited her the year I graduated high school. She was in a cold water walk up on the fifth floor at the time and her bath tub was part of the kitchen.

She now lives in a suite on the 34th floor of a building facing Central Park.

All of your photos week after week have convinced me it's time I start planing to make another visit.

Pamela K H said...

All is forgiven. Great post from New York.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

Hi mary,

That is kind of the way I am during the winter. Always forgetting what day it is.

Love the shots.

Eaton Bennett said...

Never ceases to amaze how much red there is in the world and how you only have to have a little red in a photo and it brings the photo to life. Have a great Tuesday

Jim said...

You're popular today! I was ready yesterday but went to Houston this morning.
I did go by the Texas store, their items were more pathetic than the ones I told you earlier about in the Sam Houston Statue Gift Shop.
Sorry, but I'm working on it still!
:-)

Jim said...

Those are all sooooo pretty, and red. I like red doors and red stairways and red items in general, especially from Brooklyn, N.Y.
Your problem is forgiven, I've been a day ahead all week long.

The Cunning Runt said...

Nice shots, Teach! I especially love the contrast in the flower pot one. :)

boliyou said...

Great shots! I like the Statue of Liberty especially. My favorite landmark!

Hope you had a great Labor Day!

MyMaracas said...

LOVE the doors!

Glad to see that all is well in Rubyville. I was a little worried about you.

Bill and Lorie Shewbridge said...

Great pictures... love the Statue of Liberty, I've never been a fan of doors until now... yours are really pretty, must be because they are RED!!! My favorite color. Have a great week.

Gattina said...

Better late then not at all ! Nice photo of the Statue !
I have the same problem I always think it's sunday on a day off !

Daryl said...

Nice shots .. gotta ask, the header shot of the house with the two car garage ... it says Fredrickson House 1780 .. I had no idea there were houses w/garages in 1780 ...

amanda said...

Hey Mary I guess from the looks of it I left a comment on last weeks post not this one. I love your shot of Lady Liberty but see the details of the buildings was great too. Sorry this is late!
