A Peek The Daily Post Photo Challenge

On the property line, right next to my house, is a sign that reads Cemetery Road. When my husband and I discussed buying this land, that thought was a bit unsettling. A few folks had explained the cemetery itself is closed. Family still visit their loved ones on occasion.  Some come seeking answers to their ancestry questions. The cemetery in fact is not closed, as we have saw more than a few arrivals. We have also learned the previous owner sold that particular plot to the township with the condition that residents could rest eternal at no cost. Walks from the house to the cemetery are quiet, serene and absolutely beautiful, especially in the fall when the trees are doing their magic.  The view from the house is nothing but breath-taking and the white picket fence only adds the charm.  There really has never been an eerie feeling as one might expect living so close to a cemetery. What once may have seemed a little disturbing to me has turned into a certain kind of comfort. There is a peace of mind knowing I may never have to leave the place I have grown to love and call home.

Rounded Webs The Daily Post Photo Challenge

Autumn presents an incredible time to capture beautiful photographs. These photos of webs taken on a sunny Saturday, the twenty-third of September. I remember thinking while taking them, even the spiders know what season it is. Spooky spiders are sometimes associated with Halloween and this time of year. There is nothing spectacular or special about these particular spider webs, other than they caught my eye that day and I had to take a few shots of them. Their beauty mesmerized me and just so happens the webs spun were perfect for this challenge today.

This week, share your take on “rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.
