Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above


Not long ago I looked up in Boston.

Instead I’ve recently been looking for the view from above.  Above is one of my favorite photographs: the view from above a beloved beagle who in turn hovers above our puppy.  I challenge you not to at least think Awwwwwwwwwww. . . . .

From my own little vantage point here, with the Earth sometimes tenuously beneath my feet, I have a few sights to share (and, for especially tolerant readers, some more haiku).  I suggest for a soundtrack a little bit of John Hiatt, “Take it Down“:
