Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence


In the silence of an early winter morning

the sun slowly peeks over the horizon

illuminating frosty crystals left behind by winter’s icy breath during the cold, dark night 

They sparkle and shimmer in its golden light

and I sigh

breaking the silence of an early winter morning

Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered


Ghosts of the past speak

as the sun sets

on aged boards

weathered by the test of time

I came across this old weathered barn while I was in Southern Illinois this past summer for the eclipse.  Whenever I see old buildings like this, I always wonder about their story and listen for any whispers from ghosts past…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows


A window within a window…

There’s a metaphor in there somewhere, I’m just not feeling clever enough this morning to come up with one.   😉


Here’s another great window from this same building

Weekly Photo Challenge – Satisfaction


Growing my own food and harvesting fresh veggies from my garden definitely gives me a great sense of satisfaction

And a deep sense of gratitude as well.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

I thought the circular patterns of rust underneath the peeling paint on an electrical pylon I came across the other day was quite unusual, so I stopped to snap a photo of it.  Convenient that the weekly photo challenge this week is unusual, so I can share the unusualness with all of you.  😉

Really though… why is the rust in circular patterns?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime


My contribution for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

 I don’t take many photos at night (unless you count the millions of times I’ve tried to capture a picture of the moon) because my camera doesn’t have the settings for it, but I snapped this of my daughter’s dog Teddy with my Mom’s camera one night as he was dozing in the orange glow of a warm fire with us out on the patio…


Teddy recently underwent oral surgery and had to have ten teeth removed from his teeny tiny little yapper.  I’m happy to report that he’s recovering well and is back to being his mischievous little self, but it sure wasn’t a fun ordeal.  For him or for us.  The precious little guy.
