J'aime


Today,  I decided to share a new blog with you.  My friend Terry has this amazing ( 44 carat) ruby that he loves sharing with friends and strangers just to see their reaction.  I've watched him in action, and he is so at ease approaching strangers.  Maybe the 100 Strangers Challenge is in his future???  Well he's created a photoblog just to chronicle the people he meets and what they do when he puts this lovely stone in their  hands.  One- Red-Stone is his new blog.  I decided to try and put my love of Paris, champagne and of course this lovely ruby all rolled into one photo. This day seemed the perfect time to share it!

Your photo is totally absolutely definitely top gorgeous.
The one-red-stone idea is fantastic too. What a great way to meet strangers and ask for their portrait!

An absolutely beautiful photo. It makes my attempts pale in comparison.

Thanks for the reference to my blog! I hope one of your reader / viewers will will the ruby I am giving away.
