...of making choices...

I HAVE not so much emulated the birds that musically sing,
I have abandon'd myself to flights,
broad circles.
The hawk, the seagull, have far more possess'd me than the
canary or mocking-bird,
I have not felt to warble and trill,
however sweetly,
I have felt to soar in freedom and in the fullness of
power,
joy,
volition.
~walt whitman
light + objects = shadows
another day of shadow seeking.
and you can find some amazing ones
just BE.

what a beautiful shadow shot - so subtle and delicate

The shadows fall upon the utilitarian basin as it sits upside down and in disuse. This tub however can now be turned upright and filled with life-giving water to the odd animal that stumbles upon it. Or even a bird or two, as well. A wonderful poem and capture!

A sliver of light—
enough to peer deep into
the heart of darkness…

Lovely words and beautiful golden sunlight peeping through!

Dina said...

Good choices here--what Whitman chose and what you found for a photo subject.
Thanks for the beauty.

So beautiful!! That little shadow on the bottom look lie a mini praying mantis of sorts.
I took a similar shot today of what you have up on your banner. It truly is spring!

to find that bit of perfect light and shoot it so flawlessly is wonderful

Hot Fudge said...

I love the warmth of your shot - was it early morning or late afternoon? Whichever it was, it's just lovely.

Love your shadow - love that bit of light - it gets your imagination going picking out what that shadow looks like...a face, a mountain, oh the possibilities (better than shapes in clouds!!)
Happy week to you!
