...a drop in the ocean....


we ourselves feel that
what we are doing
is just a drop in the ocean.
but the ocean
would be less
because of that missing drop.
~Mother Teresa

light + objects = shadows

may the sun shine upon you today.
just BE.

old door knob
waits for gnarled fingers
to turn it

Shadow shapes offer whimsical details to any object. I can't say why, but the weathered doors with the shadowy artistry looks stunning, a great backdrop...

Mother Teresa was very wise, wasn't she?

Lovely words. I needed to read those words today. Charmaine

Yes, there is a purpose for us all, we just need to find the right path and understand the meaning of the words written on the wall...right now mine keep shouting IS IT SPRING YET...as it's spitting freezing rain. Had to scrape my windows before I could drive home, however the roads were OK...whew!

You know, back in 93' when we had those horrible floods in Iowa, my yard had 18 inches of water in it all summer, so now I'm paranoid when I can't see the grass, even in snowfall...wonder what that means...more Earthbound than water girl I guess!

Don't know about you guys, but our rivers are bank full already...scary!

See ya tomorrow for the java time, though I may have to have a cup right now...mmmmm!!!

Hey Tilda...stayin' outta trouble(whatever)!!!

Love the quote you chose today! And your little birdy looks very happy swinging from the door handle. He casts a large shadow...almost dinosaur shaped! Enjoy the rest of your weekend Robin :)

Paula Scott said...

Another great quote! So true, too. I suppose our egos need to know that our efforts made a difference. Egos do tend to get in the way of things, don't they?

Millie Price said...

when i look at the muted earth-tones in your photo and read the quote you chose i feel 3 things...calm, peaceful & uplifted!

Alissa Nicolau said...

I love the grainy detail to the wood framework of the door. The subtle colors are also pleasing to the eye.

Beverley Baird said...

I love the Mother Teresa quote you used. Love the simple yet strong shadows as well.
have a great weekend!

sue said...

I like the shape of the doorhandle with the shadow of the string dropping down. The quote is a beautiful addition.

Great shot and I LOVE the quote by Mother Teresa. So true and so nicely stated. Mickie

Greyscale Territory said...

I think I am always saying that your photos are magical! And this one is no exception! A beautful sense of serenity gently suggesting that there is always a door somewhere waiting to be opened!

Patti said...

Neat shadow of the bird on the door knob.

Love the quote from Mother Teresa.

Enjoy your Sunday, robin. That mug of hot coffee sure looks good. ;-)

LauraX said...

a wonderful quote to sit with the simple moment of awareness you have expressed through your photo Robin.

gentle steps,
Laura

Joan said...

Cute!
Love your poem on the above post. Thought of my daughter. So true. Lovely.

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

I love how much sunshine it takes to make such distinct shadows! Great sunny shot!!
