AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Lovely intricate shadows all captured at the same time. Well done.

The shadows of the hanging plant is big and filling. The ground plant shadows are intricate, like the quills on a porcupine. The garden may soon go into remission for the Oz winter (or maybe not :), so these captures allow us to feel as if we are still in the warmer season. Cool capture!

Love the shadows on brick supported by the green!

I love the filigree at the top of the photo! Great shot, love the color of the bricks and the larger, sharper shadow against them. Very nice.
Congrats for making Tracy's finest!

A Wild Thing@Sweet Repose said...

Oh dearest sister, I don't know which is more troublesome, having a very full time job and crazy schedule as you do or having to struggle every day trying to pull ends together to make them meet economically in this crazy economy, up, down, there's just no middle ground anymore, especially with just one income coming in. I was hoping to have my home paid for by now, but recession put a quick finish to well laid plans.

But I try to look at each day with a clear vision of what I strive for in my later years...peace and quiet, though not always easy living next to a 4-lane...but I continue to plant more trees to hide me away in my lil' homestead...and a smile always helps heal the ills!

I haven't taken much time to blog these days, as my veggie garden is ever-expanding and requires my constant attention, we must work diligently in the few months given for planting and harvesting...and believe me, after the winter, we are ever so anxious to do so!

My chickens are really growing now, though still languishing under their heat lamp, as mornings are still quite cold, you might say they're spoiled...but what pleasure they give as they pseudo-fly and frolic in their little pen. My main concern now is to get their permanent run built.

Ahhhh, a day in the life of A WILD THING, will continue to be my mantra for my lil' studio, which I'm working in all day today, organizing, as it will FINALLY be warm enough to work out there.Much to do in this one busy day that doesn't require 'a real job'...this is playtime for me!

Again, have a wonderful week dear sister and know that I think of you often...just breathe...cause it was a big ol' hug I just gave ya!!!

Those shadows across the top are really cool. I'd love to see what's making them :)

That IS like an intricate lace running across the top - gorgeous. Happy SSS!

Great shadows. I'm thinking and thinking about what it could be. :)

Kelly said...

I like trying to figure out what is making each shadow. My favorite part is the shadow running across the top.

EG Wow said...

The top shadows look very much like lace. Really nice, Gemma!
