Gone fishing

Pixels and Paper is a new challenge blog that has posted its first challenge this month. 

Our July challenge ...

When I look at this photograph I see many different things:-
 A child (girl) alone or a child (girl) and her dog (pet),
Someone fishing,
A bridge,
A river or lake on a sunny day,
Hair in plaits,
Rolled up jeans and sneakers,
If I look more closely I might see ..
A hand knitted cardigan/sweater (made for love or necessity?),
Intense concentration,
Companionship and/or love,
You may well see other things. What story do you wish to tell using this inspiration piece as your starting point?  Please explain this link when you submit your entry.

Pretty neat huh!

So here is my take on this inspiration piece.

Gone fishing
We went to northern Georgia and rented a house on the lake for a week with my sister and her hubby.  I am more of a city girl but my hubby loves his fishing and even took our little girl out in the boat with him to fish.  So, from the inspiration piece I see companionship with a faithful friend.  I see solitude and reflection.  I see peace.  

I hope you find your way over to this new site and enjoy the inspiration!

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to see what the papers are saying today.
