Okay, I am in my new place...Driller's Place
, but more about that later. I thought I would open my new blog with a Ruby Tuesday. This old water tower in Rogers, Arkansas used to be part of a pickle plant. After the plant closed the building sat vacant for quite a few years. About four years ago a business purchased the building and opened a building materials flea market in the space. Well, it's not exactly a flea market, but you can buy used, discontinued, and floor samples of almost anything associated with residential construction. There is everything from floor tile to landscape stones, door knobs to dishwashers. It's a treat to wander through the stuff. You may have noticed that they are earning a little extra cash by leasing it out as a microwave tower. As you can see, they have painted the water tower Ruby Tuesday Red.
But then what fun is it to just leave a photo alone. So let's solarize this puppy and see what happens. BANG!
Happy Ruby Tuesday. I'll try to have this worked out a little better next time.
I enjoy any retailer that deals in closeouts. Big! Lots, and Ocean State Job Lot (in New England) and now Tradersmart. A deal is what we all want, value for our earnings. The water tower in red is great in plain red or neon. Nice view, and RT site!ReplyDelete
Wee!! A new home :)ReplyDelete
I like the effects of the 2nd picture. Nicely done :)
Welcome to Rudy Tuesday!ReplyDelete
It looks like a red rocket ready to take off in the second photo. :D
Love the new digs.ReplyDelete
The solarization was a really fun touch. I'd love to check out that flea market too. I bet there are all sorts of treasures there waiting to be discovered.
Summer Stock Sunday starts May 31st - come check it out!
I like the way they painted it, nice and colorful.ReplyDelete
Great Photo Trick. Red sky, Hey I love Mars and This photo could go there,lol Happy RT, to your new site. Have 2 Ruby Tuesday up, My Garden site and At home Site. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the heads up about the new digs. When I was designing my logo for my design business, I kept telling people I wanted the photo solarized and they acted like I was speaking in some other language! We may have to wander over that way sometime and check out the old pickle plant. NOT that we are doing any remodeling right now...ReplyDelete
