Oh, dear. We haven't even had our first snow fall here in The Valley and I'm already longing for summer.

  1. Aren't geraniums the best?

    You are very observant to have found the red paint. I like this picture.

  6. Well, you beat The Teach to it, then!

    Nice shots; Nova Scotia grows in my esteem with each photo you post!

  8. Yet more excellent photos. You have a good eye for interesting shots.

    Nice of Bobbie to say that geraniums are the best! ;)

  9. Great photos - I especially love the big of red still holding on to the boat.

    And yes, I'm longing for summer too and we've just had 1 dusting of snow ;)

  10. Thanks, folks. Two things about my photos. 1) CR taught me some basics which I grew up missing; such as not cutting off the heads of people! :D And looking at so much art and other people's pictures has affected how I view things. I have no idea how to "doctor" photos. The only thing I do to them (usually) is crop. And I suck at B&W. This must be an art cuz I rarely get a good shot in monochrome.

  11. The flowers really make the street look nice.

    My Ruby Tuesday entries are posted here and here. Hope you can pass by, too! Thanks.

  12. Downtown is in late autumn momochrome not accented at all by the gray sky. So the RED flowers stand out in beauty and color against the starkness. A beautiful accent!

  13. Ralph: yes, it had been raining all day but it was August. Thank you for stopping.

    Thanks to everyone and peace.

  14. Great shots! Good Ruby Tuesday to ya!!! :D

  15. I think we are just drawn to the old, the decrepit textures, the history of what once might have been...what was it that made the owner of the boat just leave it to waste away, the many mysteries of life...

  16. No snow yet? Hmmm.

    Red geraniums now?! Are you trying to make me jealous? ;-)

  17. EG: These were taken in August on a trip to Nova Scotia. We have a slight dusting this morning here in Massachusetts today, actually.

    Sweet Repose: You put it very nicely. Actually the whole place had that feel to it but the photos I took of the Ottawa House aren't very striking, unfortunately.

  18. Looks like a lovely town. Love the geraniums... and the red reflection in the window too, but I really love the boat photo at the bottom.

  19. I love the flowers by the door! What a happy touch!

  20. Lovely photos. I hope you enjoyed your trip to the Maritimes. I live in New Brunswick, next door to Nova Scotia.

    You had been wondering about my edited blue Jay photos. I have an older version of, Microsoft Picture It #7, that I use sometimes for photo editing. I probably had bought the software in the 90's.

    The procedure is really simple actually. I crop around a single bird, delete the rest of the picture, then drag my cropped photo onto the photo which I use as a base. In this case the bird nearest the top was on the base photo I used, and I just added the other two.

    This can probably be done with PhotoShop somehow, maybe through Layering?, although I haven't tried it there. But its always fun experimenting!

    Hope you get well soon, thanks for your comments.

  21. love the angle on the top shot

    and you know how much I love weathered wood so the second shot is fabulous

  22. Love those bright red flowers and the subtle red on the old weathered boat is sweet.

    Great Ruby Tuesday shots! This is such a great meme, I really need to get on board with this one sometime soon!
