Cobblestone, Shmobblestone...

Today is the first of the month, and that means it's Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. Today's theme is Cobblestones.

Well, everyone here knows that the San Gabriel Valley might not be awash in cobblestones but it is (literally) built on river rock! Here, we have a detail of my 112 year old home's original river rock foundation, built with stones dragged from the nearby Arroyo Seco.

The City Daily Photo website was hacked last month, and our wonderful hosts there are still trying to make their way through the mess left behind. Since participating bloggers can't post at the main site, we have brilliant Julie, all the way over at Sydney Eye, to thank for putting up this Theme Day blog to see the all the other Theme Day contributors.

Very interesting shot for Theme Day. Hard to believe those are part of an actual house.

You and Petrea think alike. Great minds, as they say... I've got a river rock wall in my backyard. Hadn't thought about its history until reading your post. Thanks for that.

This is a favorite today! Nice work.

Oooooh, pretty!

Laurie said...

Thanks, everyone!

Susan, I've become rather obsessed with river rock since moving to South Pas. It's everywhere!

Jilly said...

Oh yes, I do so love this photograph and of course that is exactly what cobblestones once were - small rocks or pebbles.

Thanks so much for your kind and generous comments today, dear creative talented Laurie xxx

You're a rebel LA.

It's interesting Laurie also because, as Jilly said, rocks are what cobblestones were. Of course, it was a bit difficult to walk over...

Petrea Burchard said...

I wouldn't want to walk on them but I do love them.

Thanks, everyone!
