Weekly Photo Challenge: DOWN

Autumn Silhouettes

Tree Shadows

It was a crisp fall day and the sun was blinding while I walked a local trail, so I had to look down.

What a nice surprise.



  1. Very nice shot and great take on the challenge! Quite often these things go unnoticed..

    • Thanks! I remember when I came back from my walk, my husband was like, “Why did you take all those pictures of the ground??” Because they were beautiful… duh. :-)

  2. great shot

    • Thanks, Amar… I enjoyed your take on the subject as well.

  3. Purty pic, Debs. How are you girlfriend?

    • Thanks, Annie :-)
      I can’t believe it took me a whole month before I came by to reply to your comment! Sorry, sweetie :-( Perhaps the delay can give you an idea of how I’ve been doing. Even though it’s been a little more than a year since my daughter’s Diabetes diagnosis, I find I can never really flip the “off” switch and stop thinking about when she ate last, when she needs to eat again, how high her blood sugar was at her last couple of meals, did she get enough exercise today, etc., etc. And, of course, keeping tabs on her internet usage and the fact that she has a “crush” on an older boy!! And she’s not even a teenager yet!

      I’m usually in hyper-worried mode, since my brain is only working on half-power as it is, but NEEDS twice as much power as I used to have! The drama of a soon-to-be 12-year-old daughter on top of 3 [“adult”] sons with very different personalities (21,24 & 28 – I am officially old now!) It can be a recipe for disaster — or, at the very least, the cause of an uncontrollable twitch in one eye! :-)

      Hope you’ve been doing well. Anything new to report from out west? I try to read your blog posts when I see them in my email box, but I admit that I get a little melancholy the times when they’re geared toward bona fide writers, knowing they don’t really apply to my life anymore.

      It’s always good to hear from you, Annie. Whenever I relate something interesting or funny you’ve said/written to my husband, I always say “You know, my blogger friend from California”. Reminds me of how long we’ve known each other and how cool that is! :-)

      Take good care of yourself, Kiddo,

      • Well, I guess we’re both slow on the uptake, eh?

        Really adult sons? You? Nah, you’re way too gorgeous to be old.

        Sorry my posts about writing inspire melancholy, that was like the opposite effect I was going for, you know? LOL. I still hold out hope that you will return to it. You’re just so darn good, Debs. Really.

        Yup, we have known each other quite a while, eh? But blogging sure has changed – now it’s about branding and money all kinds of other things. Oh and author platforms. Jeez, I hate that stuff, but you have to do it anyway.

        I think of you often and always love hearing from you.
