Foto Friday #16: Red, White, and Blue

Hi Everyone!
So I guess by now you know I will be hosting Foto Fridays!
I am so Super Excited and I hope everyone will continue to participate.
When I received an email from Kim at Mom Tried It asking me if I wanted to take over and
host Foto Friday I nearly screamed! I did except right away!
This will only push me forward as to learning more and more about photography.
I received my birthday present early, a DSLR camera and a 75-300mm lens!
Can I say I'm over the moon thrilled! 
So make sure to come back next Friday to join in. 
The theme will be "favorite"
Meaning one of your favorite photos that you've taken

Now on with my submission for 
Red,White, and/or Blue

This sign is an icon pretty much in down town Baton Rouge.
It has sat on top of a building for as long as I can remember.
I had no intention at all to submit this picture for the theme this week.
In fact, I already had a picture ready. But as I kept looking at this one
the more I loved it! People drink lots of cokes here, so I thought 
it would be perfect with the red and white, and cheat with the sky being a 
beautiful blue.

I know this sign! I live in Baton Rouge too. I'll have to remember to take a pic of it next time I'm downtown. Nice photo. The colors are so vivid and bright!

As I looked at the picture I focused on the sign and I thought.."Where's the blue?" Then you mentioned the sky and well it was just a "DUH!" moment! LOL!! The irony here is that I have a Coke in my hand as I read this! lol said...

I have to have my morning coke. Thanks for sharing a little bit of Baton Rouge with us. Congratulations on taking over we'll see you next week.

Very cool submission. I think it's been a couple years since I've had coke. I could actually go for one now!
