55/365 After the Rain

Like many, I love being outside just after it rains.  Cash and I went for a walk this morning.  The leaves around here stay on the trees so long, but a few more came down with the rain this morning.  I had to get down low for this shot.  I should have gotten down lower, actually laid down, but I was being a weenie and didn't want to get the entire front side of me wet.  But as it was, I practically had my cheek on the walkway, with bottoms up (I know, not a pretty picture), on a deserted trail, and wouldn't you know it, a delivery truck came through the cul-de-sac behind me and could see me from afar.  I didn't hear the truck stop.  I just heard someone calling loudly, "ma'am... ma'am".  So up I came and let him know I was just taking a picture.  He had gotten out of his truck and was coming toward me.  He said he was worried I had fallen down.  I assured him I was fine and thanked him for stopping and checking on me.  So I guess if I'm going to be laying down on a trail, I probably should have someone other than my dog with me, to reassure the passersby.


  1. Beautiful image. It was nice that he stopped to check on you.

  2. What a great story. Gorgeous photo!

  3. Haha, Ellen I can soooo relate to this!! I keep joking that I need some knee pads and a blanket and then an assistant to carry everything.

    That was so nice of him to stop!! Great pic!
