That's My World Tuesday / Grapes in January!


This grape vine can be found on Olvera Street, Los Angeles.  There is still some nice color here, even in mid-January.  The purple grapes and colorful leaves are striking against this little blue building.

Oh wow it's been years since I've been to Olvera street! In elementary school I went there for a field trip. Love this photo. Great catch for blue monday, too!

I love the beautiful colors in your shot. The composition of this is great!

More great shots from you today and the grape vines in winter sure say Southern California to me. It reminds me of the never pruned Concord that took over part of our yard when I was a kid. I can taste them now just as I did when I would squirt the pulp into my mouth (the skin being too tough to chew).
You look at the world with a photographer's eye, bringing gret shots where ever you go.

Wonderful shot of the grapes and it is great that you can watch them growing in California in January.

Beautiful captures! Love the grapes and the blue building! Love all the colors! It's been fun seeing the vineyards appearing here in Washington, too. Have a great week! Enjoy!

Only grapes in Ohio are in the stores and they don't look as nice as the ones in your photo. LOL

Lovely photo. I'm surprised the birds haven't picked the grapevine clean!

What a gorgeous picture! Surprisingly, I've never ventured down Olvera Street. I keep wanting to go, but sometimes Los Angeles feels like a world away.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment the other day, I really appreciate it!
