Stony River’s Microfiction Monday #6

Susan at Stony River hosts a fun little writing exercise each Monday that encourages a 140 (or less) character story triggered by a picture.  Be sure to drop by and check out the many thoughts on a single image. Join in and have some fun with the crowd that follows her around that weekly image ;-) Hope to see you there!

And the triggering town this week?

Kitchen Creek collected New –
and Old Age crazies from all around.
Feeling like I fit, I knew I was bound
to fit my VW in that Mystery Hole.

That one kicked my hooha! I’m really looking forward to dropping by everyone’s place to see their take on this photo. I wound up going with the stoner spot in the mountains… a place some high school kids back in the day… Well, they weren’t exactly flower children… 😉

The new header picture is courtesy my brother’s excellent photography up in the hills near Quartzville – after the fog had cleared, and nearer the source of the creek. If you’re ever of a mind to see some truly stunning photography, my brother goes by the moniker ClickClan over at JPG Magazine. For those of you who liked the previous post’s photo, my brother took one of same area of Green Peter Reservoir that is astonishingly beautiful. The man’s an artist – drop by some time! 😉 I promise you’ll enjoy his imagery!

Here are a few of mine (my brother talked me into photography, and I’ve been following him ever since) from the same trip up into the hills. The people on the trip… yes, Einstein is a people 😀  Please click on the photos for a full size view.

Cheers all!



Silly Puppy!

Dad, put the camera down...

Eric mulling over the optimal settings.

Yes, I am that cute.

    @quilly Thanks Quilly! She’s a great daughter – she doesn’t mind humoring her old man… because he takes her dog on the trips into the hills 😀

    @KB Einstein’s a lovely puppy! A bit eccentric, but a fine member of the family 😀 Kitchen Creek sort of collects the New Agers – and the old timers from another sort of era. Thanks for the comment KB.

    It’s a comforting feeling when you know you fit in! I smiled at your lovely daughter – could have been one of my daughters complaining to my husband.

    New and Old age — everything comes back around again, doesn’t it?

    And I LOVE the new header photo. Wow. And look at that gnome peering around the tree!

    @jabblog uk Thank you. It is a comfort when one fits with those one wants to fit with! And me girls? Aye, I want to fit in to their live any way I’m able!

    @southlakesmom ROFLMAO… I’m sure you knew, cause this had the girls laughing – yuppers, I’m the gnome 😀 We dressed up in renaissance garb and started shooting pictures in the green hills of home!

    On my next vacation, I’m going to have to find out where Kitchen Creek is.
    A VW brings special feelings out in all of us!
    Graet job!

    That header is AMAZING! I love love love it. You’re right, your brother has a gift, but you aren’t doing so bad yourself, and your family photos are great!

    It wasn’t until you mentioned “VW” that I realised we had a “VW in WV” but I’m not sure what you could do with that LOL I loved your story, and the idea of ‘fitting’: loved *that*.

    It never ceases to amaze me how many takes we all have on one photo! This was fun.

    @Peggy Southern California – halfway between San Diego and El Centro in the Laguna Mountains 😀 I often wonder what it looks like now. I’m hoping the geriatric hippies aren’t still skinny dipping lol

    @first50 😀 mmmhmmm.

    @Sylvia Kirkwood Thanks! & Einstein is happy to be included!

    @Susan at Stony River Thank you – I’m working on the photography because it’s so much fun. As it turns out, so’s this community writing! 😀

    @juliana The pup and cats would argue strenuously for people hood! It was a bit of a twisted *fit*

    @Jeff DUDE! Sweeeeeeet!! Close to what my daughter said while asking if I intended it to be taken more than one way… silly girl, I’m an old, old man.

    @hope Glad you dropped by, and glad you enjoy the writing fun 🙂

    That was too funny! Fit into that mystery hole! Loved it so much, and I have to say that your header photo is STUNNING! as are the photos you took of your puppy and daughter. What a talented pair of brothers 🙂
