Ruby Tuesday & Creative Photography: Red Sky Over Dah Bridge

After my friend CHERIE noticed all the antennas on top of the Verrazano I started playing with the photo to make them stand out more.

And this is what happened ...




It made me think of a fantasy or sci-fi movie.

Check out RUBY TUESDAY and CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY

Aha! You beat me by mere minutes this week for Ruby Tuesday, Dianne.

:-)

I like what you did with your bridge shot. It does appear sci-fi like.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Whoa, that bridge shot is bright! You do take such beautiful photos, I love your yellow post and the one in the post before that of the window is a peach!

Roger said...

A great red planet, that could be a movie poster!

Daryl said...

Nicely done and very Sci-Fi

bobbie said...

Impressive.
Don't you love the Verrazano? I have a photo of it as a screen saver right now.

Jan said...

Startling, love it.

Mojo said...

Yeah... I think it was Escape From New York! Isn't this where Donald Pleasance got all trigger happy with the sub-machine gun at the end?

Ralph said...

The Verrazano is a mighty, impressive suspension bridge. My early years in Queens I remember the huge bridges like the Whitestone, Throgs Neck and Triboro. When we moved to CT, there were no mighty bridges like this! Far less impressive...

Of course, we don't have to pay $9 to go from Hartford to East Hartford, like crossing the Hudson. But these steel monuments are great!

You're a magician, Dianne ! How can you create a Nuclear attack for Ruby Tuesday ? Jack Bauer won't be pleased : )
As soon as you can come back to the original version, without colaterals damages, it's ok for me.
Funny Ruby Tuesday.

Robin said...

That does look like a science fiction movie scene. Fun shot.

bobbie - when I commuted between Manhattan and Brooklyn each day I drove since I worked until late at night. on the way home there is a spot on the Belt Parkway when you turn a bend and there is the bridge - shining like a jewel. no matter how bad a day or how tired I was that sight always made me happy

jan - it startled me when I came up with it lol

mojo - trigger happy? guns? in NY? could never happen ;)

ralph - I love all the bridges in NY :)

catherine - if only I could get Jack Bauer here!! he's so sexy ;)

Very 'kewl' look to this week's photo. I played for the first time today and I left you an award for Forks Off the Moment too ... both at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,
