AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

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)

Shadowy Corner

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Almost drowning in reports and exam marking at the moment, so I thought it was appropriate to have a shadow shot from school.
My corner of the school is upstairs in the senior students' building.
This is one of the small windows near the stairway captured in early morning sunlight and shadow.
Shadow Shot Sunday #106

A frame of colour
Some corrugated shadows
An eerie corner

Lovely, shadowy capture, Gemma, as always. It somehow looks very mysterious and intriguing! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Simple & beautiful, the shadow draws one to the frame and the life within it.

It looks like an old film projector on the screen, the film reel about to move as we await the moving picture to start. Neat!

Beverley Baird said...

Great shadow - even if it is at school! lol
I am into the gr. 3 assessment this week - 3 days of our provincial assessment for all grades 3 and 6. Ugh. Then report cards!
Only 4 weeks to go. How about you?

What a great shadow shot.

Birgitta said...

Like your shadow shot! Beautiful!

Hey Harriet said...

The window looks like an odd little piece of artwork hanging on the wall. With the subject matter being an airconditioning unit makes it all the more unusual! An intriguing photo!

All the best with your heavy workload at the moment Gemma!
