Debbie’s theme for One Word Sunday this week is Decline. And this week I have used an older photograph and tweaked it a little.

The path is actually sloping downwards, away from us, but at times it appears to be sloping downwards towards us. The only thing that corrects the view is the handrail on the second part of the path, after the turn.

Visit Debbie’s site to see more interpretations of the word ‘Decline’.

    1. It doesn’t appear so in the photo, Beverly, but the first slope is almost as steep!

    1. Oooh no, Prenin… definitely a no go area for roller skates, skateboards or even bicycles. It really is steep and that sharp turn is awful! Even on legs, going down, is tricky. And coming back up again? Even trickier!!! 😀

  4. Oh yes, that is fun Tom. If I only look at the top half of the image (roughly) it seems to slope away, if I look at it all it swings to slope toward me. So a double decline from you – top marks!

    1. Thank you, Debbie! I’d love to say it was deliberate, but I really can’t! 😀
