Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Silence
Today's Round Robin Photo Challenge theme is "Silence" -- surely a challenging subject. I don't believe there is a place where one can find complete silence on this planet. I believe it is all relative; at least, that's how I'm presenting it here.
In the picture below, taken outside my house on the road, it was almost totally silent with no cars traveling by and no machinery running on nearby farms. The only noise was the chirping of a few birds.
This picture shows how quiet my place is, out here in the country -- at least the day I took this picture, before the sanding for the painting started in.
Another source of silence is when my TV is turned off. There are still things running in the house, such as the air conditioners that are needed right now, but it is very quiet without the TV going.
Cats are the proverbial quiet animal. Here is Stevie, sleeping in her silent spot, the bathroom.
Then there is Silver, also a very silent guy unless he's meowing to go outside. Up here on the office bed, he is quietly enjoying the cool air from the air conditioner.
This wasn't an easy challenge and I don't know if I did it right. It will be interesting to see what the other bloggers who participated in the challenge came up with. Go to the link in the first sentence to find out! (BTW, I've learned you can click on the pictures to enlarge them.)
