There is no sign of fall in here! So I had to rely on my archives..once again 🙁
The fall of the stone wall…
..when tsunami hit the subcontinent..
..which took around 290,000 lives from 11 countries! The US Geological Survey said the earthquake which resulted in tsunami measured 9.0 on the Richter scale, making it the largest quake in four decades, worldwide. The tsunami was just a reminder from the mother nature. We are really very close to the POINT OF NO RETURN!
Sorry folks, I’m a bit down in spirits this weekend! Maybe the ‘Signs of Fall’ is reminding me of something, which I lost long back! 🙁
More Signs of fall!
When I feel low, I like to..
go for a run
drink hot chocolate
visit an animal park
lie in the sun
read a book I’ve read before and loved
find a really old person to talk to
or bake peanut butter and choc chip biscuits.
Maybe they are all too girly occupations, but sunshine is so cheering, you could find something manly to do that takes you into it. 🙂
Hope tomorrow looks better for you.
Awww. Sorry to hear your in the dumps…things will be better in the morning. Just reflect on all that you have that is good and wonderful!
I grumbled a bit in my SS post this week too- but I’m certain it’s for an entirely different reason 😉
Great shots nonetheless.
Nice shots Hon, sorry you are in the dumps.
aww cheer up nivin 🙁
gorgeous photos, i like your newest design also
That second shot is amazing! Is that near your place? Looks like a great place when it is a little less windy ;-).
Now take your camera and go out to take some more really great pictures. Will cheer you up no end!
Very nice pics, now I feel bad for issuing this challenge..;-)
Very nice, a little windy for me but hey, I am used to wind! 🙂
lovely lovely lovely.
Hope Pooh Bear helps to pick you up!

Love the leaves. The second shot is interesting. Taking a quick look without the text, you’d think it was just another peaceful beach scene…and when you dig deeper, it changes everything. Perspective.
Wonderful, perfect pictures. I especially like the first one because my eye can’t stop moving around it.
As for the sad memory, darlin’….without the clouds we wouldn’t enjoy the sunshine, would we…
We often think of the beauty of nature during the fall, but it’s good to remember that it is a force to be reckoned with.
Beautiful first shot, it’s so breathtaking!
Chin up, Niven. Take your camera outside in the fresh air and focus on photography. Whenever I’m feeling sad that helps get my mind refocused on the beauty and miracles around me. You know how to make magic happen with your photography. Go do it now!
(Do you like how bossy I am? lol!)
Beautiful photos, of course. Creative borders, too.
Looks like I should get me some kind of photo-editing software to play with some day. Looks like fun!
I understand the dumps…memories and lost plans. Sometimes lost people and scenes of comfort and change.
I really like your captures and display of them inside the film slide.
Smile…you have lots of admiriers and tons of talent!
oh -that is soooo sweet…looked to see that I am on your blogroll. That gave me a bit of a blessing for my heart= coming from YOU!
Thanks for making my meloncoly day brighter!
This time of year is good for introspection, which can sometimes lead to sadness. But certainly most of us are daily moved by the struggles of Earth and all its inhabitants, as your second photo depicts, where weather becomes less predictable. Even my dry well, and the personal hardship I am experiencing from it has to do with climate change. Although painful, these things teach us we cannot control Nature, and the sooner we start working with her, the better!
The photos are lovely. Hope you feel more centered and cheerful soon!
Your photos are beautiful and gives food for thoughts. To be down, in spirit now and then is inevitable for a sensitive artist, not a plesant sentiment to be in, but often a way to get new ideas, and new hope.
The first one is beautful, and the second shot is so poignant.
I find I am more thoughtful and full or remembrance in the autumn than at any other time of year. Don’t know why.
Hey , Your leaves are beautiful!
Chocolate and a walk with my camera always makes me feel better:)
Well….to be ‘down in spirits’ is a sign of fall too…..!
Beautiful picture nr. 2, but the reason why the stones are there is of course very sad…
Tnx for your visit 🙂
I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling down, but I’m glad that you have channeled that sadness into such incredible works of art. That is true talent, my friend.
Great pics.I hope your spirits get picked up and soar.
great work , the second photo is simply superb dear. excellent combination………………
Look at it this way – you’ve got tons of friends. 🙂
