Ruby Tuesday More Pictures from Bruges

I saved a couple of pictures from Bruges for this Ruby Tuesday post.
Remember the tiny street where my bike got stolen?
I posted it in my Weekly Winners on Sunday.
If you want to see more pictures of Bruges, this link will take you to this post.

This house is across the street from the small alley where I used to park my bike every day.
I used to look at this house from inside the shop I where I worked when I was eighteen.
I don't remember that it was painted ruby back then.
It most probably wasn't, I like it better how it is now.

No rubies here? Oh yes there are, look at the garlands on the left. See?

I love how the red reflects in the water of the canal.
Those people are waiting for the next boat to arrive to take a boat trip along the canals.

The minute I saw this, I knew this was a Ruby Tuesday picture.
I'm still having so much fun looking for Rubies each week!

And this is my Photo of the Day 2009.
If you live in Canada or Alaska it's probably not a big deal, but here in Belgium we're not used to getting much snow. If we do get some, it's usually gone by the end of the day.
But not today. It's very very cold here, and it looks like the snow will be here a little while longer. It's the coldest winter in years.

I'm not sure if I got the white balance right on this one.
Up until now I used to shoot most of my pictures in auto mode.
But now I'm challenging myself to switch to manual settings in order to get to know my camera a little better every day. That's why I joined this challenge, by the way.
But I tend to forget to change the settings every once in a while ...
