Under the white-hot sun?

Some of you have already written about cool nights and the need for warm blankets, but we're not there yet. Right now we just feel lucky that the temperature has dropped in the last week to a daily high of no more than 89-90 degrees.

I do know the season will change soon, though, and there's one more photo I want to show you before cool weather makes it untimely:

It's such a simple shot, really. The colors and the bleakness make me feel the kind of loneliness I experience when I look at Andrew Wyeth's Christina's World, but much warmer thoughts come to mind when I remember the day the photo was taken.

If you have the time and the inclination, tell me if the picture reminds you of anything or anywhere in particular. Then I'll come back in a day or two and give you the backstory.


  1. Oh yeah, I can see the bleakness and loneliness, it looks like a big hill of wheat.

    I'm guessing it's either Kadi walking past the camera or a finger over the lens.

  2. Janet, you have a good imagination.

  3. It could be a hillside here in Californina...or I'm with Janet on the finger on the lens... Interesting shot.

  4. It's little house on the prairie like for sure and yeah, it is a solemn picture. My first thought was the top of someone's head or a close up of the dog but the smoothness of the edges kind of makes me think it's not hair. I'd have to go with finger tip.

  5. Good guesses, everybody, but Little-Duck wins. The "wheat-covered hill" is the top of my grandson's head about a week after he'd had it shaved.
