August Theme Day - Postcard Worthy



This month's theme in the City Daily Photo community is "Postcard Worthy". I don't care for the title of the theme, sounds rather presumptuous to assume your photo is "postcard worthy" don't you think? But anyways, playing along with the theme, I wanted to chose a photo of a place that holds great memories for us and this would be the place. This is our little spot on Craig Creek where we have spent many weekends this summer to escape the heat. Yesterday we loaded the cooler with drinks and sandwiches and headed out. We were so lucky to have the whole creek to ourselves all day!

Being from SoCal we really appreciate places like this that are unspoiled by development and huge crowds of people!

  1. Looks pretty enticing to me. The aim of most postcards?

  3. That is such a beautifully peaceful scene. I agree with you re today's theme and it perhaps being perceived as being presumptuous. Pretty postcard scenes are really 'me' and that's why I did and perhaps didn't have my heart in it.

  4. maybe i put too much thought in the title of the theme rather than just focusing on places that are "postcard worthy" which pretty much covers everywhere i look here!

  10. Looks like a great place to canoe as well as to escape from social obligations, work, and myriad other details. Bet you had lots of fun in your "postcard" setting.

  11. Tranquility of a summer's day! Wish I was there, in a little row boat, with a bottle of wine, just cruising in the shade.

  12. Postcard worthy!
    I still think that the main idea of photography is to illustrate our memories of places, faces, situations, pages of our life.

  15. Hi.. I actually came here to apologize about clicking the "friend request" button on facebook without leaving an explanation. I was trying to find a way to send you a note just to thank you for the comment that you made on Wing-It Photos facebook page about Mark Hubbard because you saved me alot of time and perhaps by the way it sounds, headaches also. Well I tried to tell you this when my fingers got ahead of me and clicked onto the "friend request" instead :-( BUT all of this led me to here and I am REALLY glad it did because I love your blog. It's not only fun to read but I can really appreciate the wonderful photo work! Anyways, what a crazy way to thank you but hey.... whatever works, lol!
