Ruby Tuesday



Happy Ruby Tuesday everyone!



How do you like this first photo? I did a little photo-editing: a swirling blur in the background. I picked it for today because of the bit of RED of the strap over her right shoulder. Doesn't she have a sweet face? Her name is Debbie.



This toucan hung from the ceiling of the restaurant Tequila Sunrise. Again a bit of photo editing: I placed the toucan against a paper cut-out also hanging from the ceiling.

I love the header photos! Being a girl from the south shore, Town of Babylon, I spent a good deal of my "mispent youth" at Robert Moses field 2.

Hello Mary, This is my first post for 'Ruby Tuesdsy'. I appreciate your being host and all that involves.

I have not ventured as far into photo-editing as you as yet, finding the use of layers and such, as a bit beyond me.

Have a good week, Mary.

Gattina said...

So the Tucan watched over you while you were eating ?

Patti said...

Debbie looks like a friendly person.

I like what you did with the editing on both of the pix.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

I love senior Toucan ... happy Tuesday..

Jan said...

I really like your editing, Mary. Great job on both photos.

Felisol said...

The lady sure is a woman I'd like to know. She's looking so bold and open.
I must ask Serina ow to place a picture in a picture. Such great effect. I so wanted to place a rose in the water on my entry today.

I've just arrived home from a small tour, and have to manage on my own, the family is sound asleep 2.15 a.m.

I just had to finish my Ruby Tuesday before bed.

Dianne said...

I love the swirly, blurred effect Mary. And yes, she has a lovely face :)

BJ Roan said...

I do like the effects! Happy Tuesday!

Spadoman said...

Debbie is a cute one for sure. Don't see many toucan's around these parts. Maybe on the shouklder of the occasionalpirate that passes through.
Happy Ruby Tuesday to you and all.

Peace.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I love the way you love to experiment. Very inspiring!

srp said...

Love the interesting effects.... toucans are such strange birds... always reminds me of Fruit Loops, only they spell them FROOT LOOPS. Ha... too much sugar AND teaching kids to spell incorrectly.
Happy Tuesday!

Debbie seems belonging to the group who can act naturally in front of a camera ;-)
Great shots!

Francisca said...

I applaud your sense of adventure with the processing, Mary. I don't know how to do that twirl, but it's interesting... keeps the focus on your friendly friend's face.

I remember when the Robert Moses Causeway was built, way back when (did I say that?!).

Christine said...

Love the toucan, and the red strap is genious. Been gone most of the summer and am just now getting back into the swing of memes. Is today too late to submit?
