Each week on Wordless Wednesday, bloggers around the world post a photo they’ve taken that tells a story. I hope this one will bring to mind a memory or stimulate your imagination. Perhaps it will even inspire you to try your hand at some flash (very short) memoir or fiction, or a poem. If it does, please let me know!


Scroll through more of my photos here.

  1. Mmmmmm! How satisfying. I want to be walking down that road, breathing that late autumn air, and getting a clear view of what lies behind those trees — a very modern farm house? A space ship? Intriguing. I love how the road and the line of trees leads us on, so invitingly.

    This photo really draws you in. It would be a perfect book cover for one of those novels you pick up on a stormy week end and read from one end to the other without stopping. Such pleasure even imagining it!

    I love what you’ve done with this. It’s got that ‘not quite real postcardy’ feel along with a sense of being taken back in time… When I was a kid we had to write a short story, just a few hundred words probably, I can’t remember. I wrote 18 pages (9 binder pages, double-sided). About a girl named Emily who visits her grandparents and the horse she meet down the lane. Riveting stuff, as you can imagine. This is pretty much where it takes place… (:

    “the horse she meets down the lane.” Will I ever proofread BEFORE sending??

  5. Christine Barbetta says:

    Gorgeous shot! I love the rich saturated colours that anchor this photo giving it a resin-like effect. And of course the symmetry of the tree branches lift our view. Beautiful S curve – I want to follow it.

  6. Cheryl Andrews says:

    Ummm … a dreamy, country road on a lovely Fall day.
