Ruby Tuesday




This is Golden Pond in Bayside Queens.  That RED ladder hanging from the back of the seats is used to save anyone who might fall into the pond when it's frozen.

What do you have for Ruby Tuesday?

**This is Driller AA's Ruby Tuesday badge. I love it. I'm going to use it next week and thereafter. I think he won't mind if we all use it!

Mary, I love that photo of the pond and the red ladder must really stand out. Thanks for sharing this one.

Don't you love how people have to prepare for other people being drawn toward disaster? When I was in Toronto recently and going past High Park on the streetcar, I kept looking at the orange lifering and the big hook ready for anyone who might get into trouble on the pond.

LOL! People...you know they are dears, really...

Red is the right colour to attract attention!

Really? The ladder is used when the pond is frozen? Surely you must be saying that with tongue in cheek! :-)

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Or maybe not, come to think of it. I guess the ladder would be useful if someone fell through the ice...

Jan said...

Good to know! Great photo, Mary. I've enjoyed all your shots of Golden Pond.

Leora said...

The red ladder shows up well, easy to see in an emergency.

A great idea to keep the ladder in ready in such a convenient place!

I have never seen a frozen pond before! a good colour for the ladder, you can see it easily in the white surrounds :)

What a lovely touch of red in that picture... it always brightens the day. We really need the brightening today here... I think rain will start any minute.

Beautiful pond -- scary thought falling into the ice. The ladder really does show up, which I can see would be very important.

Marites said...

Queen-Size funny bone said...

I'm surprised its not buried in snow

Teresa said...

Great idea to keep that there. Must be that has happened before and they want to be avoid trouble if it happens again. smart.

Dimple said...

You found a beautiful day for photography, and a perfect subject for Ruby Tuesday!
Could this pond be the inspiration for the old movie?

ilovepink said...

Wow, great shot! Really really cold...

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Neat shot, Mary. Don't go trekking on the ice to find out if it works!

My biggest fear ever, and recurring nightmare is falling through thin ice!!! Freaky!
I love the effect you gave this image.
