Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Through and Behind

Shades and shadows . . . tantalisingly clear, yet remote.

  1. What a great shadow shot, beautiful lines and colour. It took me a moment, but is it a vase of flowers past there prime?

  3. Hi Purple Dreamchaser,

    You guessed it. A late afternoon sunbeam caught the last of my wilting yellow tulips on the windowsill, throwing their shadow and colour!!! onto the solid but translucent drawn curtain.
    Amazing the photos one can get even from a convalescent bed when you keep your camera handy.
    I've always been a photo-opportunist.

  24. Thank you to all of you for leaving me signs your much appreciated messages. They really make my day.

    Bella my Dear,

    it was one of those magical moments when God gives us a present, it only lasts the life of a sun beam but when you see it you are entranced. Luckily I still had the presence of mind to grab my camera.

    It really was one of those pictures and experiences one does not forget.

    Thank you for tuning in to my wavelength.

    Love & XXX
