Ruby Tuesday #1/WordlessWednesday #12/Thematic Photographic 12: Colorful v.4.0


"The Color of Fast II"
Raleigh, NC - June 2006 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Wordless Wednesday - Button Image by Smarmoofus Thematic Photographic hosted by Carmi - Button Image by Smarmoofus

If last Thursday's dual purpose post for Qilldancer's Just Reflecting Challenge and the weekly Half-Nekkid Thursday was a twofer, then this one is a trifecta. Three, count 'em three memes for the price of one. Ruby Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday (Tuesday Edition), plus a bonus entry in this week's Thematic Photographic: Colorful. This Lotus Elise was captured at the RBC Center on June 20, 2006. Yeah, there was a big party going on at the time... Too big to fit inside the arena.

Wanna guess what for?

Hey Mojo, I almost had a red car this week but decided to do McDonald's instead. Your car is neat.
You also beat me to sign in for WW by two minutes!
I do have a Mobo toy for WW back at 12/12/07 (not Mojo).
..
JIM'S LITTLE BLOG has Ruby Red and
JIM'S LITTLE PHOTO PLACE has WW.

that Lotus appears to offer a toothless grin sitting there. And why not red for a true sports car in honor of Ruby Tuesday?

Winter said...

Oh, yeah, baby! Now that's what I'm talking about! Vrrrrrooooooom!

Leora said...

That red car has personality. I think he's talking to us. He's like: "I'm sleek, wanna go for a drive?"

What a beauty of a car!

Ken said...

Very nice work. Thank for stopping by my blog. I must agree, I am very lucky.

onangelwings said...

Holy moly that is RED!

Digital Flower Pictures said...

What a racy red!

Carmi said...

You're gonna laugh, but today's color-themed photo on my blog is a...

Ferrari Testarossa. Alas, it's yellow, but what a neat coincidence that I posted it after you shared this gorgeous shot of one of my favorite pieces of automotive engineering.

(I hadn't seen your blog before I published mine...what's that they say about great minds?)

:)

I love how you've captured the curves and the reflections of light off the complex surfaces. I've only ever seen the Elise while driving....never got up close and personal with one (Damn Canadian rules!) Thank you for fulfilling my need to linger for a bit.

Lotus could use a staff photog.

Mona said...

wow! That is neat!

Mimi Lenox said...

If I have a car like that, I would say, "Get out of your dreams, get into my car." The color is very captivating!

Rambling Woods said...

Three memes..Nice job and I would love a car like that. I wonder how the gas mileage is..

Indrani said...

This is a great shot of the car! If only I could get to drive it!!

Dianne said...

I posted a car as well, just not as sexy a car ;)

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Look at you just theming and meming all over the place.

By the way, I'm not sure if you caught, the intro I made between you and Maggie Dammit over here.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Princess said...

It would be fun to get cruisin' in that red hunk of a car!!!!!

Maddy said...

A red car would always be my favourite choice but I think mine would be a Mini preferably with round wheels.
Cheers

Maddy said...

P.s. that would be 4 round wheels.
Cheers

Carver said...

That works perfectly for all three. You made me laugh with your trifecta.

WillThink4Wine said...

:wolf whistle:

Melli said...

Now wait just a cotton pickin' minute here! HOW can it count as a Tuesday & a Wednesday??? Annnnnd HOW can it count as WORDless when there are so many words involved??? Leaving off the blah blah about the meme's and the question at the END... I still count 31 words JUST to explain the picture! WORDless? Hmmm... a far stretch if you ask me! ... A lovely car nonetheless... GREAT Ruby! I'll even give ya colorful! :-)

Mojo said...

Melli, ya gots ta read the fine print... says Wordless Wednesday (Tuesday Edition). Hey, I didn't invent the meme...

The wordy parts? those are for the other 2/3 of the trifecta ;)

Thanks for stopping by luv...

MyMaracas said...

Way to go, knocking off three memes in one!

Beautiful lighting on the car, and I love the way you cropped in close on the details. Very nice!

I believe you're right in your comment on mine -- that plane is an A4 Skyhawk. Thanks for stopping by!
