I opened my front door yesterday morning and discovered these shadows. The wrought iron railing at just the right moment of early sunshine!! I love it when that happens!! Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!!

Enthusiasm is the best protection in any situation. Wholeheartedness is contagious. Give yourself, if you wish to get others.

Good shadows

Happy birthday - have you seen 1000 moons? We hope so! Wrought iron can e formed into intricate shapes - that nicely allow for equally intricate shadows. Nicely capture in the Portland sun!

You've outdone yourself here! I love the swirl and twirl and the suggested help of a railing.

I hope all those folks in Mumbai gave you a celebration worth remembering! :)

Thanks, as always, for your shadowy shots. You seem to keep your eyes open for them "around the homestead."

Sylvia girl !
Many HAPPY MOON returns on your birthday (you certainly are far younger than any count of years, in spirit, heart and manner!)
Thank you for your welcome back to me .. gardening has taken so much of my time I had to let go of a few other things for a while)
Your shadows appeared just in the nick of time for you !
I'm looking forward to many more!
Joy : )

Being at the right place at the right time is the name of the shadow game, that's for sure! And, you were there at the right place at the right time!
Late in making the rounds this weekend-was at Picurus Pueblo yesterday for their Feast day and heart-stopping pole climbing and dances. I wish I could’ve taken pictures, but none were allowed of course.

These are wonderful pictures, the shadows are beautiful, very artistic compositions!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
