...afternoon delight...


happiness is the harvest of a quiet eye.
~ Austin O'Malley
it is with a quiet eye
that i chase shadows.
this is the afternoon-
early evening sun
on the young budding tulip.
showing off it's silhouette
could not be helped.
it surrenders to the sun's rays
and my lens.
catch more shadows there
with tracy and the rest of the chasers.
just BE.

Tulips looks very elegant and contented in the sun.

U always share those artistry shots of urs which I appreciate & love then.

Happy Day, dear R!

Even though the bulb hasn't yet opened, we feel the strength of nature, which will convince the flower to bloom at the right time. The shadow is equally strong as it accents the shape of the bloom to be. This is a nice take!
