Ruby Tuesday: Prayer Flags and Cranberry Juice

Maryt/The Teach over at Work of the Poet has something called Ruby Tuesday which features red. I don't have a lot of red things in my home. And this week I'm really stretching just to have something to post, so I took some cranberry juice and tried to take "artsy" photos. Not sure that I succeeded with the artsy part, but the juice IS red. Then I had prayer flags hung across my back porch. The string broke a while back so now they hang down a pole and a couple kind of drag on the porch which makes me feel guilty and disrespectful, but I haven't been able to correct the problem. I tried to get some close-ups. The red didn't come out that well, so I stuck a green one in because it's nicer. And that's it for me. I feel kind of foolish with fallen prayer flags and cranberry juice but if I don't do Ruby Tuesday, I'll have to think of something else to do and I don't feel like doing that either, since yestereday's post took a lot out of me. Looking forward to everyone else's reds, though.

I like it and think of all the light and shadows you can study through the cranberry juice. Your second photo has lovey horizontal light patterns.

Hey, if it's red--it works. I love the upside down cranberry juice bottle. Good thinking.

Katherine, this is a fantastic post! The light coming through the cranberry juice is wonderful! Love the prayer flag shots! You did great, K. :)

I'm with everyone else, the light through the juice is stunning.

love your angles and the detail on the flags

beautiful and creative and unusual and well executed as always Raven

Raven..I am amazed at what we can find in our own homes if we look. I read of your "challenges". I have multiple sclerosis and during a bad relapse was confined to bed. I watched this tree outside my window and the birds around it..It's dumb, but I think being able to watch the tree kept me sane.

Thank you for visiting my blog

Thanks for reminding me about Ruby Tuesday and inspiring my own post. And then for commenting, too! I love cranberry juice. A truly creative approach.

I am so glad to have discovered your site, what lovely words and photographs - especially the one of the roof in the rain storm, and the prayer flags! And thanks for your kind comment on my OSI post for today. If you look really hard (in the photo of the geese on the lake) in the lower left-hand corner, you can see part of my string of prayer flags along the porch railing. A faint bit of color on an autumn day...

In fact, the cranberry juice seems to be closer to 'ruby' than anything else one can think of. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Cranberry juice is really good, the ruby shade is one but not forgetting the benefits of them :)
Good one!!

Your photos are great. I like that you took what you had around and they are very creative and "artsy." I wish I was close enough to help you hang those prayer flags up again.
