This week’s theme is “fallen.” With Valentine’s Day approaching, you can use a play on words like “fallen” in love, or go with the more obvious showing things that have fallen: leaves, branches, flower petals, night, rain, hail, windsurfers, heroes, people… well, I will leave it to your creative and capable imaginations!
Here are some of my examples to kick off this week’s Sunday Stills’ theme of FALLEN.
“Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.”Shira Tamir
I love photographing fallen leaves. Their random patterns never cease to amaze me and I especially enjoyed this image from two years ago when leaves fell after Autumn rain.
After a strong, spring storm, fallen debris and hail litter my former backyard deck.
Eroded basalt rock formations and fallen rock signify Mammoth Lake’s Devil’s Postpile.
Jacaranda trees bloom in San Diego in June. Their fallen purple petals make a delightful carpet!
Fallen pollen from a sunflower.
Fallen debris inundate local rivers in Sacramento after the spring snowmelt from the nearby Sierra Nevadas. Hubby did a great job clearing our windsurf launch.
The Art of Fallen
Speaking of windsurfing, as winds blow strong, daredevils put their skills to the test with the inevitable outcome of fallen!
An early, unexpected snowfall had fallen on the poor harvest decorations. At least they’re still smiling!
Another spring storm creates a carpet of fallen tree petals.
“Every picture shows a spot with which the artist has fallen in love.”Alfred Sisley
Fallen for RV Life
When explaining my blog theme to my husband, he offered the “fallen Roman Empire,” to which I countered, “I don’t have a photo of that.” This is an example of conversations we have daily, living in an RV with about 200 square feet of interior space.
I do have this photo of the morning light flooding our RV campground. We love our trailer and I feel as though it is happy to have us living inside!
I know it’s silly to believe our inanimate objects “feel” anything, but I like to think that as we inhabit a dwelling, whether it be on wheels or in a site-built home, its walls keep us safe, therefore igniting our spirits of adventure and wrapping us in peace.
HOME UPDATE: As of last week, the electrical pedestal was set up and is hooked up to the new home, but still needs to be connected to the power pole provided by our local electric company. This should have been done three weeks ago, but someone had fallen down on the job! Once that is done, the manufactured home contractor can work on the interior and get us closer to moving in.
The images shared today are the things I have fallen for and I hope you enjoy this week’s theme. I’m excited to see what images and other creative ideas you will come up with for the theme!
Be sure to join us next week for the monthly color challenge of Rosy Red! Have a wonderful week!
