in rosso

On my recent trip overseas, we were lucky to be able to drive up from Los Angeles to the Central Coast through a wonderful rural landscape. Flying may be quicker, but driving allows you experience so much more. If you'd like to see other images of this journey, you can see this post, or visit my Flickr album.

This portrayed above is Blackwell Corner Market on Hwy 46, where we stopped to stretch our legs and get a coffee, about half way through. I was touched by the sign at the entrance, 'in the red' is an expression many of us are sadly and often confronted with recently.

  1. Divertente sembra fatto a posta!

  2. That is a great sign and so true these days.

  3. What a nice Ruby picture ! Yes with a car you see much more of the landscape.

  4. Purtroppo questa e la verita!
    I negozzi piccoli non riescono a resistere con i problemi di questi tempi!

  5. There's a lot of red's in there. Great shot!

  6. I love how you have captured all the red in the different things.

  7. Ciao and greetings from Carmel! I'm disappointed in having missed my window of opportunity for that coffee/stroll (sigh) but I do love the photos you took on the way up. What a great drive that is. These look like classic roadside attractions. One of my favorite themes (Americana buff). Talk to you soon..


    The seekers of rubies and poppies and reds
    Won’t spend a spare second asleep in their beds,
    Afraid that they’ll miss a rubicund sight
    Or something that’s scarlet, flaming at night.

  9. Ahhh love Rome. Your picture is fabulous too.

    Do you know that in your profile Blogger pic you look just like Jennifer Aniston? A younger version. Just a general observation.

  10. Thank you friends and newcomers for your lovely comments!

    This has been a very busy week, so I apologize for not answering individually...
