In the photos from our weekly walks, the transition from early fall to late fall is apparent.

Bonus Photo Post: Grid


Getting artsy for the Weekly Photo Challenge. I kind of feel like I’m in a cage when I look at this photo.

Wordless: Dialogue

“…for this week’s challenge, bring together two of your photos into dialogue. What do they say to each other?”




The other morning as I was leaving for my walk, this little fellow flew between me and my glasses and made himself (or herself) at home long enough for me to snap a photo.

Anyone know what this bug is? Maybe a midge?


Red Efts



We love red efts around here. My children insist on rescuing every eft we find in the path when we’re hiking. Despite their bright color, they blend in very well on the ground, and my kids worry they’ll get stepped on. They always take me a little by surprise, even when I know to expect them.



Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story


The split-second story:

A peacock decides this driveway in suburban Florida is a good place to pick up chicks—er, hens.

“Oh, yeah,” he thinks. “She totally digs me.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist


When I saw this week’s photo challenge topic, I immediately thought of this photo of my son on the playground near the beach in Saco, Maine, last fall. I feel a little sick to my stomach just looking at it, but he had a blast.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

This is my photographic response to this week’s photo challenge by The Daily Post. 

The assignment: “This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, show a photo with a window.”
