Ruby Tuesday – Back At The Falls. March 29, 2010

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature, Ruby Tuesday!.

It’s officially Spring, and the Deerfield River is cresting the dam at Salmon Falls, down in the center of the village of Shelburne Falls, MA.  It’s a mesmerizing sight, sonically overwhelming and totally humbling to a mere mortal:

The glassblower’s shop provides just enough rubiliciousness to allow me to sneak this one into this meme.

Farther up the hill, the Shelburne Free Public Library radiates yet more Ruby into the cosmos:

The Falls may have been taking liberties with “the ruby thing,” but this one hits that nail more squarely on the head.  🙂

Good stuff. I really like the doorway shot, and the red lid on the bucket, that would have been enough.

The old red mill looks resplendent as it sits on the high ground above the falls. The classic New England riverfront, full of barn red structures with wide plank flooring looks so right, so real. The library sits proud under its stone sheathing, and i noticed a wheelchair ramp, so a visit is possible. What’s not to like at a classic town library?

Great photos. I know the power that is there, you have got it snookered. Life in our part of the world. You portray/present us better than anybody else has ever done. Thanks.

All of you, thanks.

Cuz, just another stone building from these bony parts.

Laurie B, I’m humbled – those are big words, and I hope I can do something to live up to them.
