Yen said...

Tons of red signs! Happy RT!

Linda said...

"Signs, signs, everywhere are signs ..."

Now I've got that song stuck in my head after looking at all of your red signs!

Patti said...

Ah, you found lots of red signs, Dianne. I like.

I am running late and plan to take my photo(s) in the morning!

Happy Ruby Tuesday eve ;-)

Raven said...

Excellent collection of signs. Cool angels and perspectives. I like what you did with the stop sign. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

As a mom of four young kids, I've seen those first two signs many, MANY times. :)

So nice to see different shots of red here :D

Carletta said...

Great finds and well captured!

magiceye said...

good captures!

Catherine said...

Dianne, they're just all perfect for the theme.
Nevertheless, I don't believe the first one, anymore ; )
Happy Ruby Tuesday. And Bonne et Heureuse Année to you .

napaboaniya said...

Excellant signs great for Ruby Tuesday! :)

ilanadavita said...

What a wonderful selection of red signs.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Because of Ruby Tuesday I am soooo aware of how many signs have RED on them. Nice collection!

Mojo said...

That's kind of an odd place to put a stop sign... unless that's a gate in front of it that just happens to be open at the moment. Even so, seems like it'd be hard to see it.

Dianne said...

ellen - and I found more! I shot all of those yesterday. I kept 'seeing red' lol

yen - Happy RT to you too!!

linda - don't you hate when that happens! sorry ;)

patti - I knew if I didn't post last night I might not get to it - isn't it funny how RT has become Monday eve ;)

rambling - and yet there were more! ;)

raven - I wish I could have gotten the focal point of the Stop sign to be wider but my software and talent need upgrades lol
whenever I made it bigger it bled into the background
but it is fun to experiment and learn
thanks :)

angie - I bet you have!! I usually go to the grocery in the AM and I really enjoy all the babies :)
although I'm sure the Moms would rather be somewhere else.
I've also noticed these cool seat cushion things - they go into the cart seat and create a cloud of softness and support - plus the carts that are like little cars - they never had cool stuff like that when my son was a baby!

m.kate - thanks - I try to mix it up

carletta - thank you!!

magiceye - thanks :)

Catherine - LOL - I don't believe the first one either - and my checkbook has the proof :)
Happy New Year!

napaboaniya - thanks :)

ilanadavita - thank you!!

your EG - RT and other photo projects have made me so aware of everything around me - one of the reasons I love blogging and photography

Dianne said...

mojo - it is a gate that was open - the gate separates a public parking area from an authorized personnel only area - I shot it because I love how the sign looks behind the gate

Izzy 'N Emmy said...

A fabulous set of RED signs!

Terry said...

Ha Dianne...The best sign here is that Stop sign. I mean how in tarnation would somebody NOT obey this sign, eh?

I was up so late last night trying to teach that Siren how to dance that I never had time to Ruby Tuesday it but will be doing it now!...Love Terry

The sad thing about the whole thing is that I don't even know how to dance!!..Poor Siren!

Jan said...

Great collection. You're right red is everywhere on signs.

Sylvia K said...

Red everywhere!! You did find a stack of them and they're great! I've been so housebound because of the weather I couldn't even go look. Thanks for sharing, always enjoy whatever you do!

Leora said...

Quite a collection you got there! I like the supermarket cart one. I feel like I stare at that every day.

Babs (Beetle) said...

That's a lot of red signs!

Pagan Sphinx said...

The first one is a bit of an oxymoron, yes? ;-)

Happy Ruby Tuesday

dot said...

Great theme! Mary is good at thinking up such and you came thru with some good shots.

MyMaracas said...

What a nice set of crisp, red shots. You've included one that I wouldn't have noticed, the child seat in a shopping cart. Great entry!

Dianne said...

izzy n emmy - thanks!! welcome to RT :)

terry - I loved the post you created for us!! thank you so much :)
Siren listened to the music

jan - I wanted to stay out and keep shooting ;)

sylvia - I hope nature gives you a break soon

leora - I know how that feels

babs - once I get going I can't seem to stop ;)

pagan - I'm at the point where everything seems like an oxymoron ;)

dot - thanks!! Mary is the best

mymaracas - thanks!! the cart just jumped at me lol

haleyhughes said...

I need to pay more attention to the themes that Mary has been suggesting. Red is such a good color for capturing signs. You collected some good ones.

Gattina said...

The first two pictures are really funny, I have to look next time I shop if there are signs in ours too, lol !

Jientje said...

You made great pictures with ordinary everyday things!! Very well done!

storyteller said...

Isn't it amazing how many red signs exist all around us? You found things I see every day without paying attention to them at all. Thanks for visiting mine at Happily Retired Gal!
Hugs and blessings,

Dianne said...

haleyhughes - the themes are just suggestions - and I loved your photo of Thor and Liko (did I get that right?) - they are adorable

gattina - the baby seat warning is pretty standard - the price sign has recently been added - I guess they think if they say it enough we'll believe them

jientje - that is one of the coolest compliments I've gotten - it's at the heart of what I try to do - thanks so much!!

storyteller - the gift of photography - making us sit up and take notice :)

Carrie said...

Great assortment of red signs.

Askew To You said...

I hope you enjoyed your Ruby Tuesday. :D All signs point to....running errands?

Ivanhoe said...

Nice ones! I just got my laptop back & as I was downloading some older photos back from my CDs I found a few with red signs. I think I may be able to play RT next Tuesday :o)

Dianne said...

carrie - thanks :)

askew - of course running errands! otherwise a job interview - are there any other reasons to go out!?
lol

ivanhoe - woo hoo!!
welcome home lap top

Felisol said...

Your red sign collection sure is one of a kind.
I am intrigued by the way the creative Ruby Tuesdayers solve the teach Mary's challenge.
Well done.
From Felisol
