Blues Around Town

These shots were taken in Keyport and Red Bank, NJ on two early spring days



the marina gazebo is a wonderful place to sit


the azure letter? one B word immediately comes to mind
how wonderful that we have our own building


mosaic trash cans, very classy


this shop has bits of everything


some of the bits


the blue sky is reflected off the window of the wee balcony

Hi Dianne,
Thanks for coming by. I, also, like the shot of the trash can and the view down the street. I noticed that you were out on a damp day!

The little creek on our property is dry most of the year, but I love it in the spring...

Karen said...

Great shots! I'd like to spend some time in that shop.

So sorry to be late with my commenting. I love the consignment sign and the one with the B. And that mosaic is awesome for a rubbish can. This was such a neat post. Very creative.genie

I definitely like all the shades of blue! Such a nice color. :)
Your sign is also nice. Looks like an interesting shop with an intriguing name.

I love shops like that.
More trash cans should be covered in mosaic!

A riverside gazebo would be a nice place to watch the world from.

I love the colour blue, so for me (like you, I think) it is a happy shade. Wow! Those mosaic trash cans are really classy! Thanks for an interesting post.

LifeRamblings said...

beautiful series of blues. the gazebo looks awesome and i love the mosaic trash cans.

Jim said...

I am liking your gazebo find, Dianne. :) It looks like a cool place to sit and watch passing boats.

Also I like consignment shops. Mostly to explore, I visited on this week here on St Johns High Street. Didn't buy anything, very seldom do.

Been a while, Happy MidWeek Blues.
((((HUGS)))) for Hope,
