...- 4 degrees-but sun...

grand moments are nice,
the smaller gems
that create the most exquisite beauty,
the tiny jewels
that adorn our lives
~christine mason miller
light + objects=shadows
to find them around the world,
shadows that is...
i will be inside today
snuggled up in a sunbeam.
just BE.
i have included a close up photo
of the corned beef box.
derby foods
is in chicago.
made in uruguay.
this box has sat
on this chair for
quite some time...
i don't know the story
behind it.

AMEN lil' sista...I'll be on the road North(The Junk Asylum)...that is if my truck will start! We got the same temps here...dreamin' of springtime fills my space...

Have a great weekend(inside)...hey Tilda, I heart my wool socks, how 'bout you!!!

I like the shadows - but what totally blew me away is your opening banner with an iscle! The colors are magnificent!

Paula Scott said...

Always a treat to stop by here-yes that icicle is something else on the banner!
I love the snow shot here with the shadows of plants long done for the year.
But, what got me excited was the corned beef box! Where the heck did that come from? Is it from Argentina? We grew up eating this stuff in Hawaii.

Hope you enjoy your sunbeam today as much as I am enjoying your photos and words.

Shalom from Jerusalem.

The shadows are lovely. We can be blinded by the sunlit snow, so the dazzling brilliance is muted nicely by the shadows. The changes in lighting in addition to the textural changes on the ground give Winter a light and artistic feel...

Marvelous, snowy shadow shot and I love the corned beef box, too! Definitely adds a character to the shot! And lovely words, too! Have a great weekend!

What a lovely shadow - it could be a Christmas card!
Enjoy your sunbeam today :)

Hot Fudge said...

Ooo ... that looks good enough to EAT! I know, that's all very well for me sitting here in the glorious morning summer sun, but from a distance I could almost envy you ... almost.

Martha Z said...

Ah, wonderful shot from a wintery world. Not white or quite so cold in my part of the world but still gray and gloomy.

Hey Harriet said...

The little plants in the background look like snow poppies! There's so much to adore in this photo! That old box/crate thingie is cool. Enjoy being snuggled up in your sunbeam today. Sounds sweet!

Love the graphic shapes of all the objects, transformed.

Beverley Baird said...

Carin said...

Ah that's a good idea, appealing too, but lots of snow outside but no sunbeam to be seen!

Very lovely snowy SSS picture!
