Ruby Tuesday



Today is time for Ruby Tuesday. I found this photo that my son, John, took during the summer. He shot his sunglasses reflecting himself and the clouds in the background. I thought it was a creative shot and worthy for a Ruby Tuesday posting.




This next photo was taken during Child Abuse Prevention Month. My son's school donated over 100 Teddy Bears to the police department, which they would give out to children in need. John is with Lt. Bennett of the local police department.

Cool reflections. Cool glasses too. What a wonderful project for the kids to do... helps them be aware and they are doing a good deed at the same time.

Your shot of the sunglasses is unique. Excellent shot, and your son is learning from his father. I do like hearing about good works, and tell your son to thank his friends at school for the teddy bears.

John has a great eye! Kudos

We collected teddy bears for children whose homes were destroyed in fires or natural disasters

it helps to comfort them and calm them - more kudos to John :)
