Edges and Ledges – #CFFC

After a long post from the bar, a couple hundred comments, and the official start of the Thursday Doors Writing Challenge, I think it’s time to sit back and look at some pictures. Fortunately, Cee has given us a nice prompt this week for her Fun Foto Challenge.

“This week our topic is celebrating Edges and Ledges. Anything with an edge, show it off. Any type of ledge or mantle show it off. Just make sure the edge or ledge is clearly visible in your photo. Have fun.”

I poked around, looking for the kinds of things that have edges and ledges. I’ve put them in the gallery, and I hope you enjoy them.

Note: The Thursday Doors Writing Challenge runs the entire month of May. Visit the TDWC page, choose a door image that inspires you. There are 21 doors to choose from, and you can write anything you like.


  1. Terns waiting at the edge and turtles and geese on a log made me smile on this dark, rainy Monday! You really went out on a ledge to give this post an edge Dan. 🤗 The penguins on the “sort of” ledge are just too cute for words. Great job satisfying the prompt.

    • I’m glad you liked this, Ginger. The penguins were diving off that ledge into their pool. I couldn’t leave them out. When I saw the prompt, I immediately remembered the terns and the turtles.

      We may squeeze a walk in before it rains here. I hope you have a good week.


  2. Wow. What a great take on edges and ledges. Much as I love words, I admit that a picture can be worth thousands of them. I enjoyed all the words these images conjured up; I think my favorite is the one of the canal in the winter. Not a bad idea to think of the edges and ledges in life. Thanks for a good start to the week!

    • Thanks! After all the reading on Saturday, I had to give it a rest. I was searching for all kinds of things that had edges and ledges. Having to have the edge/ledge be visible in the photo was tough (I didn’t always quite get that).

      I hope you have a great week.

  3. These are wonderful photo entries for edges and ledges, Dan. I guess I missed Saturday at the bar (how does the weekend go by so?), but I’ll try to read and catch up later. First, though, I need tea and breakfast and to pay attention to Mr. Needy Gibbs. Have a great Monday and week!

    • Thanks Mary. MS MuMu got me up at 5:45 – that’s her new time t want to be in the window over my head. Maddie and I squeezed in a walk before the rain, but we still need our toast. This is the way Mondays roll, I guess.

  4. You had a great Saturday so deserve a break today, Dan. The sunrise over the Riverside Park rails is a beauty! I thought those were contrails at first. Great shot. Oh, those penguins are adorable! Have a great week, Dan.

    • Sometimes you’re in the right place at the right time, Lois. The light on those rails was gone in seconds. Those penguins are so cute. We visit them almost every time we visit Pittsburgh.

  5. You’ve got some great photos in this collection, Dan. Thank you for sharing! The bridge leading to the city is most inviting–and mysterious. 😊

  6. There are so many favourites in that grouping for so many different reasons. If I had to choose only one I would take the reflection of the trees in the water of the dam. Water of the dam… HMMMMM….

  7. At first I thought you photographed those penguins at the river and I thought “what??” I have actually taken the train from Springfield to NYC. A long time ago but it is a sweet memory.

    • That’s the train I take, either to NYC or to Washington, DC. I prefer taking the train over driving or flying (to DC). The penguins are in Pittsburgh.


  8. Hi Dan – good selection … I could do with them in warmer times! Oh I agree take the train if one can … and you’ve an interesting selection of edges, ledges and not sure if I saw hedges or not … but the Penguins are special – there I agree with you. Cheers Hilary
