Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge (Day Three): House In The Country

Thanks to Helen over at HHC Blog asked me to join along in the fun of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge.  If you don’t know her you should check out her blog.

The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo (It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph) and then nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.

Today I would like to invite Soul N Spirit to play along in this fun challenge.  I have known her for a couple of years on the blog.  She is someone who participates from time to time in my challenges.  I have always adored the photo she has on the header of her blog.  I don’t know if she took that photo.  If you don’t know her you should check her out.  Her blog is full of wonderful energy.

Here is my photo for the today. Note that this photo is also a part of The Daily Post WPC Early Bird challenge.



Often times Chris and I will set out on a day trip early in the morning to arrive at our destination.  This photo was taken on October 31, 2009.  We were driving to down McDowell State Park which is almost a three hour drive south of where we live.  We were driving on a country and we spotted this yellow house on a hill.  Chris actually turned around so I could get some photos.  The long shadows on the fence with the fog rising on top of the hill was so very gorgeous.  This photo demonstrates Oregon countryside at its best.

We had a blast that day.  McDowell has waterfall, trails, rivers and tons of maple trees.  We had a lot of fun taking photos of the huge maple leaves.  This is a photo of Chris I took hiding behind one of the leaves.

  1. Omg ! I am so thrilled to be part of it. Yesterday I saw Marilyn’s post and loved the concept. I am humbled and honored the way you introduced my blog. The header photo is a Google pic, I added art effects to it. I loved the pic and so everyone who visited me blog so far. I don’t have plans to change it in near future. I will soon join you in this fun filled five days.


  2. You nabbed my next candidate, but I forgive you. I’ve been surprised at how many negative responses I’ve gotten. You’d think this would be easy since we all post photographs and write about them anyhow. People are weird. I’m having fun and I may keep doing it, because … why not? I post pictures and write about them every day, all year round. I’m not understanding the problem.


    • I hope you continue. Check our your most recent followers who are photographers. I usually get them to play along. Thanks for commenting.


  3. Great photos. Love the one with Chris and the leaf, or should it be the leaf and Chris.
    We all have a story to say about our photos. What the weather was like, early or late in the day or serendipitous finds. It is sharing a part of our lives.


  4. That leaf comes from a Big Leaf Maple, also called an Oregon maple. It has the largest leaves of any maple, typically 15–30 centimetres (5.9–11.8 in) across, with five deeply incised lobes, with the largest running to 61 centimetres (24 in). Perfect to hide behind!
