(Lucky) Lady-in-Red

haha! After getting Pam's photo with the nice Mountie in the patrol car, I thought to dip back when I had no time to post on Canada Day this summer. I've heard that this is the most recognized uniform in the world. There is something rather stunning about them when they're looking this good!

They put on their red surge (yes, wool, even on July 1st!) for special events, which I usually manage to capture a few times each 6-month-summer. They'll look like this again on Remembrance Day, upcoming in early November.

1 July _ Canada Day
Didn't they used to be called "The Royal Canadian Mounted Police"? Or they still are? A real icon of Canada! You do look pleased!

@maggiemae Still their full name, Maggiemae! Up here, though, most say "RCMP" or "Mounties". Thank you, I had that "cat swallowed the canary" moment ; )

When I was a young boy there was a movie hero name Sergeant Preston of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Many Saturdays I'd be at the local theater to watch him in action. I loved those bright red jackets and the dark blue trousers. And especially their Smokey the Bear hats. I told my mother I wanted to be a mountie. But she told me if I moved to Canada to be a mountie I'd have to give up my American citizenship. Which many years later I found out was not right. But you look very safe between Canada's finest!

@skipt07 Delightful story, Skip! Sergeant Preston was a favorite of Ken's as well! I have a wonderful neighbour who's an artist. He'd always wanted to be a Mountie, so now he paints them! This is his bio site: http://haroldpearse.com/portfolio/series-two/ but I also came across this where I'm delighted that he's using a photo I took of him! http://www.lunenburgarts.org/programs/drawing-fundamentals/

This is a really fun, awesome picture Louise! Wonderful uniforms :) and the Mountie on your left (our right) looks a little bit like Kevin Spacey! :)

@kerosene I can live with that : ) I have a photo of him alone...he was quite gorgeous!

@tjsworld "Dapper" certainly sums it up! As you probably well know, we women enjoy looking at a man in uniform!

Fabulous photo and you set it off so nicely with your red shirt. Lovely Louise!

@chard See Skip's comment above and mine that follows. We women think the Mounties look quite wonderful as well!

What a great shot! Yes, these uniforms are definitely known. Love that all THREE of you were in bright red.

two very arresting guys you have there. One on each arm so to speak. I love their uniforms but I thought they wore them all the time.
