Saturday, August 11, 2012 this moment...

this is the center of the universe
 at this moment
 unless you're looking in another direction
 or are thinking about something
 from a long time ago,
 in which case it will wait quietly 
right here until you return

a shadow.
is a shadow.
no matter how small.
i was walking up the yard.
when i spied.
this little fungi.
the sun was shining on it so nicely.
so off to get the camera.
and assume the position.
for a ground level view.
of course,
47 pictures later...
ya gotta love digital.
anything for a shadow shot.
just BE.

I'm sure the other 46 shots were just as wonderful :) What a great shadow...thanks for crawling around to pick out the perfect one for us this weekend!!

The quest for shadows is an endless one, and true, the digital world compels us to keep trying. To nice results like this...shadows inside and outside, small but noticeable. Little in size yet large in shadow - great!

Wonderful capture for the day, Robin, and yes, anything for a shadow shot!! Ah, but we do have fun, don't we? Enjoy your weekend!!

I applaud the effort-it was well worth it! Thank goodness for digital or we couldn't afford this SS luxury!

Smiled when I saw the 47 pictures comment and the ground level pose! I relate completely, especially as far as the odd position is concerned to get the best photo! And this one is a winner with enchanting softness and highlighting the interesting shape of the fungi!

Love the ground level shot of the fungi. 47 shots, that is quite a few, bound to get just the right lighting and angle with that many. Guess that is why your photos are always so Awesome!
Happy Sunday!

Ah yes, anything for a Shadow Shot!

And digital is the best. Remember the old days? Getting the prints back and half of them were not any good!
