Don't you hate when you have to see those red lights for TOO long? Great idea for RT. Mine is truck related too!

Hope you were going slow behind that truck. At 60 MPH, if you are this close to the truck's taillight, well...you are much safer at crawling speeds!

Ah yez ... I remember THOSE reds in traffic and am delighted I don't have fight the vehicular battle these days. Fun shots!
Hugs and blessings,

The light on the right has a unique pattern!
Hope you weren't behind this giant for very long.

Those look like flowers!
That's way cool :D

Oh, I remember those lights from all those years of commuting during rush hour! Good RT!!

Hootin' Anni said...

This is so great....wonderful composition.

For my Ruby Tuesday, I went and stuck my foot in it!!! Stop by to visit if you can...have a great day.

Great way to use up the time when you are stuck in a traffic jam.

Auntie E said...

great way to spend time in traffic! Never travel outside with a camera I say,LOL.

Daryl said...

Excellent zoom or you were TOO close!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Watch the taillights!
When they brighten up, beware!
Avoid rear-enders!

Felisol said...

Wow, that was some monster truck!
The other cars could easily have driven UNDER the trailer.
Those ruby eyes talk serious language.

Theoretically I'm for putting goods on trains instead of trailers.
That doesn't prevent me from watching Convoy with Kris Kristofferson ten times.

For a moment there I did not see what you see! But now I do, what a great idea for a RT!

amanda said...

Good job you had your camera with you. Fine choice for RT.

ROFL! I've snapped these shots before! I've never used them -- but they are in my emergency file! Sometimes those tail lights are the most amusing thing in our day, huh?

My kitty drinking from the bird bath is actually the smallest of our brood. She only weighs about 6 lbs. ... as compared to our BIG GRAY - who weighs about 13! Freedom is actually quite petite. Must just be her stance in that photo that makes her look BIG. But I'll tell her you said so - it will MAKE HER DAY! She's the only one that goes out - and she thinks she is JUNGLE Kitty!

It says red and stoop! MB

Patti said...

Those tail lights look like beautiful red flowers. Neat perspective, I just hope you had a telephoto lens!

Happy Ruby Tuesday ~

I'm glad you find a way to amuse yourself while stuck in traffic. LOL Perfect for Ruby Tuesday!

Jim said...

Excellent closeup of those pretty red tail lights. I like the LED one on the left.
Now, if that guy backed into you those tail lights would be bending your steering wheel.

Happy RT! I didn't do RT this week but do have a MidWeek Blues post for tomorrow up today. I had to cross the pond again and did a Blue Shutter theme and ended with a blue car.

Red means danger. I don't want to be so close to these monsters. :)

Gattina said...

Nice idea, but it probably stank, lol !

Leora said...

Truck lights as modern art...

Maria@LSS said...

Nice take on ruby. It looks like a flower. Happy RT!

Liza said...

I hope you weren't stuck too long. Sorry I'm late. :)

Definitely seeing lots of red on a traffic as heavy as that!
Don't we simply hate being stuck in traffic..
