Shadow Shot Sunday

It`s that time of the week when shadow shots are shared here.  I`ve missed Shadow Shot Sunday for a couple of weeks now and I`m keen to get back.  September is sewing month and so I`ve hardly used my camera.  I miss that too.  During the summer months I did no sewing but snapped away continuously.  Now the tables have been turned,  I seem unable to do the two together.  It`s either or.

I took this photo at the Majorelle Gardens a year or so ago.  When you come to visit..and you must, I insist, you`ll love your trip to Yves. Saint Laurent`s gardens.  They are an oasis.

The shadows are subtle but they are there.  There may even be a frog...if you look carefully.

Oh, that's beautiful -- and I love the little frog!

I am a city girl BUT I have a soft spot for little frogs. A few years back we lived in an odd old house that had been relocated from one part of town to the other in the 1920s -- when a narrow river was rerouted and houses placed in the former edges of the riverbed. Our garden soil was gorgeous -- dark, rich river silt -- and a little frog lived in the shadow of our downspout. I guess his ancestors decided NOT to relocate.

I love your photo!

Hello Annabella

that is a pretty shot - I did find little mr frog!

oh I can so understand the either or - I really can!

maybe the lilly pads might be a great quilt pattern one day (when you have a a spare moment)

have a great day

Great shot! Sitting here at 0230 in the morning looking for a frog because I can't sleep. At least I am having fun.

You take beautiful pictures, I particularly love the shot of the sunset and the fishing man, it speaks of peace at the end of a working day.

I see him!
Lovely shot, and the new header is so peaceful too x

I really like your shot and I love that you have done it in black and white and I can see the frog.
I also like your main picture of the men fishing in the sunset.
It's a shame we can't do all that we want at the same time isn't it. If you ever understand how to do it please let me know :))

your photo is lovely. i used to be able to only do one or the other. but i'm able to fairly consistently do both now. i don't know when the shit happened, but i'm glad it did.

This is a beautiful shot, Annabella!! (Hello little frog!)
I'm the same way - have a hard time focusing on more than two activities at the same time, and I'm sewing, too. So, the camera has been left behind for a bit.

LOVE the new header!!

I love these lily pads and the way the light is shining in them, and a very cute little frog.

Indeed, there is a frog! Bless the shadowy little critter!


My shadow and I are very best friends;
We walk hand in hand, though the sidewalk ends.

No matter the time of day or of night,
My shadow and I will always stick tight.

We don’t even think of drifting apart,
For shadow and I are one soul and one heart.

To have such a friend is heaven, you see,
For I love my shadow, and shadow loves me.

what a great shot-we have a toad (I think) that lives under the decking: we dont have a pond, so rather worringly it must be really damp around my house, he has lived here for years
Love the new picture for your blog header, fantastic colours

ha! I squealed out loud when I spied the frog!!! I find much beauty in this photo, beginning with the light. some of the lily pads glow. but the tiny frog perched there? that's the icing. happy day to you Annabella.
