...august break-day twenty-seven...

“ maybe some things need to be seen
before you know that they're there.
but once seen,
they are felt.
and once felt,
you are changed forever. ”
~terri st. cloud

At first glance I thought of a crock, with perhaps the bottom gone, as many of mine have...but you put me in a quandary...it doesn't take much these days...do tell!

The shot of you and pops is fabulous, aren't dads just the greatest!!!

Hey Tilda...why is it my feet are dirtier after I put on my garden crocs than before...only a gardener knows fer sure!!!

Thanks for the coffee and have a grand weekend, good luck with the new job...back to the paint roller...ewwwww!!!

your first glance was right..it is a crock, sitting on a crock. light on the outside...contrast shadows within...

can't wait to see your new paint rolling creations!!

Ooh, I really like this one. I love the balance of light and dark, and the texture, and the curve up the middle. Nice!

Perhaps we see things in our thoughts first, guessing about hat we feel we need to witness but only 'see' what we think it is. And we feel validated when we see it for real - our thoughts were on the money, in our imaginations we can guess what is and what can be,,,

cradle gifts of light,
burnished by the dark, in your
eager outstretched hands

Perfectly lovely!

I love your photo-more because I can't make out what it is. I like the mystery.

Greyscale Territory said...

Another enigmatic shape and shadow! Love these imaginative glimpses! Very beautiful!

Hey Harriet said...

I don't mind that I can't tell what it is as I love the image regardless. And I also love the photo of you and your dad. What a gorgeous post below. I hope your dad had a super birthday :)

Never would have guessed a crock...but now we see it! Love the shadows it creates - very cool. Birthday wishes to your dad as well!!

Paula Scott said...

Very nice composition-much like an abstract. So graceful. Love it!
And, I always enjoy reading your invitation to slow down and am amazed at the infinite ways you have of presenting that idea.

So glad you cleared up what this ShadowShot is before I fried my brain trying to figure it out! Now when I go back & look it makes sense. :0) Happy SSS to you.
