Here are some of my photos from Washington D.C. that happen to have a lot or just splashes of Ruby in them. I’m linking with Mary at Work of the Poet for Ruby Tuesday.
We really enjoyed the trolley tours that take you to lots of major monuments, etc. The drivers are really knowledgeable and you get a great D.C. education.
Hope your Monday went well and that your Tuesday will be even better!

These photos are gorgeous. I like the reds that popped out naturally. Great find!
Washington is beautiful (I haven’t been since 1977, got to get out more 🙂
The buildings offer outstanding architecture to go along with the ruby brick or stone. Such style and grace, a place to tour. Except it is a shame that the day in the first shot was overcast and the red umbrellas remain closed. Lovely shots!
Oh Ellen, I LOVED this post. That one picture with street traffic looked crazy. Our girls LOVED the trolleys as well. They used them so many times each day. Fun, fun, fun post!
I have been wanting to get to DC …we only live 1hour away. I think when the weather cools down a bit…we will make the trip. These are great shots. DC has so much to see!
Thanks for showing me around Washington DC, it’s so beautiful. I want to visit one day. The colour red stands out in each photo.
Beautiful photos. Happy RT!
Your photos are beautiful Ellen. Years ago, when we visited DC, we decided there was no way we were going to be able to drive a car in that city! The trolley made our sightseeing so much easier and fun too. laurie
Wow that’s a lot of ruby! A great selection of photos….I think my favorite is the first one, with the flags and umbrellas.
I love your photos ! They are so neat with that ‘ruby’ theme weaving through them !
There is some gorgeous architecture in Wash. DC..
Ellen ..your photos are so inpsiring. I can’t wait to have my own peek at DC. I think a trolly tour is the way to go. .for the quick version of site seeing. .right?
Very nice photo’s. They almost look as though they’ve been retouched with the red! Have a great week!
Lot’s of ‘Ruby Tuesday’ shots in DC! I’ll think I’ll have to go check it out on my own one day.
You found ‘ruby’ everywhere. Even the little red cross motif on the building. I love the look of that Irish pub, the Dubliner. Just makes me want to sit out and have my tea and scones.
Keep preaching the trolley tours! Thanks for another RT tour of DC.
Beautiful pictures ! I have been a little everywhere in the States but I never made it to Washington.
I enjoyed spotting the ruby in those pictures. 🙂 Thanks for the great post.
My cousin just transferred to Springfield, VA, and we’re trying to plan a homeschool educational trip there either this fall or spring. Your photos have me inspired.
Thanks so much for posting all the pics of D.C.!!! I can hardly wait to go!
