Photos of the Week: July 24th

 Another week of challenging prompts!  I really struggled with strip, road sign, and even backyard as our yard is looking really awful after all the rainstorms have repeatedly washed away our beach. 



– backyard (Summer) – A photo of our backyard taken from the side yard. 


– road sign-- Loved how this road sign looked when seen through a nearby clump of shrubs. 



– strip -- Seeing a strip of blue sky through the trees overhead




– lazy day-- We spent a lazy day kayaking around the lake.




– Your Choice-- The rains continue with huge amounts of water coming over the damn under the covered bridge.

    1. Yep, I couldn't get it to show in the photo but the water was so high a jet ski fell over the upper damn and got lodged under that covered bridge! It was crazy.

    1. Some of them are really challenging or I get stuck on an idea that would be perfect but not something we see or do that week. I do like the challenge of it though.

  6. Those are challenging prompts! Road sign is hard because the only time I see road signs is when I'm driving! And I'm certainly not going to be taking pictures then! Strip is hard also, but I really like the picture you chose! That photo would make a good book cover!

    1. Yes! I don't see many road signs unless I'm driving and it's impossible to take photos then.

  7. Holy frijoles, that is a crazy amount of water pouring under the bridge. I would be worried about the bridge!! Gosh your lake water is like a mirror. Just beautiful. I am so behind on my iSpy photos. Need to get a post published.

    1. There actually was a good amount of space between the water and the bridge; though other roads and bridges haven't been so lucky.

  9. I love that you have a lake in your backyard - what a treat! The lazy day photo is lovely too. But wow!! on the water pouring over the dam!! We've had less problem than usual with flooding in our local area this year, thankfully.

    1. Yep! It finally seems to be slowing down and receding now. It helps that we've had a few warm days without rain.

  14. I hope it has settled somewhat and you are not inundated with more water...yikes.


    Thank you for being part of this week's Life This Week link up. I enjoy seeing the posts linked by the community of friendly bloggers every Monday ...and you are one of those. Next week's optional prompt is Question. I hope to see you then. Denyse.

    1. We seem to get at least a bit of rain each day this summer; even if it sometimes comes in the middle of the night like last night.
