The Daily Post’s photo challenge on WordPress this week is Depth.

Pondering Depth


Many years back, we brought our dog for an autumn walk in the park. He loved to run through the fallen leaves and once we had him safely inside the gates we took him off the lead. Big mistake. When he saw a treasure trove of leaves floating on the large pond in the center of the park he took off before we could stop him. As he sailed over the edge and pounced on top of his bounty we held our breath – for about as long as he did under the water. It was as if we were watching in slow motion, as he resurfaced with a look of shock on his face. Not once on the walk back home did he dive on even the most tempting pile of leaves. We called this his ‘in-depth’ lesson on how appearances can be deceiving.
