Theme ~ Looking Down

Chosen by Tom.

I smiled when I read the theme for this week, because it reminded me of a line from the movie Winnie the Pooh.  Pooh is walking along with Piglet, explaining that "jag-u-lars call out 'Halloooooo!' and when you look up, they drop on you."  Piglet responds, "I'm looking d-down, P-p-p-pooh!"  Since our family is well-versed in movie lines, we are fond of often quoting Piglet's line.

Here is the image I chose for my header.  I took this just a couple days ago; I arranged everything on my pretty china and placed it on the floor.  I used my macro lens to capture the "looking down" shot.

Oolong tea, Irish soda bread, honey-cinnamon butter.

On to the rest of my picks for Looking Down!!

I've been traveling/working alongside Fernando for a few months, so I've had some great opportunities for taking interesting pictures outside my normal routine.  Some of them are featured below.  Enjoy!

End of February, Akron, OH hotel room, looking down out of the window.
I love the diagonal lines formed with the sidewalk and the cars.  I don't like the snow.

Looking down into the lobby from our hotel in Bowling Green, KY.

Early morning Bible reading, with a cup of English breakfast tea.

Looking down at my bowl of tortellini & spinach soup, a family favorite.

All the nature images were taken at the Morton Arboretum a few weeks ago on a very chilly afternoon.

Tree roots along Lake Marmo, at the Morton Arboretum.

Water drain hole on Lake Marmo.

I've been fermenting vegetables!

Forest floor, west side, Morton Arboretum.

Daffodils getting ready to bloom!

Scilla or other ground cover.

I saved my favorite image for last.  I was standing on a little footbridge, and shot down looking into the brook below.  There were little orange buds from the tree, plus a few leaves, floating on the water.  The reflection of the tree branches is there, too, making this a beautiful abstract image.  It looks autumn-like with the orange color.  I just love this shot!
