This week’s photo challenge is to post a picture of a good match. I will admit that I cheated again and went to an old picture because what else could a Kentucky boy post for this than RC Cola and a Moon Pie. My family laughed at me when we stopped to buy snacks for vacation one year and I was excited to find Moon Pies. I still love them.

So, the photo challenge that I found on Friday moved to Wednesday. I think they are trying to avoid me. Now that I am following them and will see when the challenge is posted I will try to take a new photo that fits the theme. Since I’m a day behind I decided to use an old photo again. The theme this week is Shadow. I had several pictures that I considered. Some from the mountains, some in the city, but I decided on my “cellfie” from Alcatraz. When The picture was first taken, I was disappointed that it was so dark, but thinking about it I think it fits. Alcatraz is not a bright, fun place. The picture fits what I’m sure the mood would be if I was incarcerated there.
So, I stumbled upon a weekly photo challenge which is perfect because I have been struggling with the writing process recently(some readers would say this I always struggle). This week’s prompt was solitude and the photo they used reminded me of some shots I’ve taken of my kids while we are on vacation. It’s weird that I am not a big fan of the beach and water, but I always feel at peace when I have a nice empty view of the water. This photo of my son captures the beauty of the solitude of an empty beach.
