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)

Everyday Shadows

Shadows around the entrance to the Dromana Hub shopping centre

No one seems to know
Each one locked in their own light
Young boy seeks shadows

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is hosted by Magical Mystical Teacher, Chubskulit + Gemma Wiseman

Gemma I think you are very right .. they are all locked in their own light some how .. but the little boy in the shadows .. well I think he is a bit more open to his surroundings isn't he ? LOL

The ordinary can always provide extraordinary shadows. We don't often notice as we amble about, so here is a reminder that we ought to look a little closer at our surroundings on occasion to notice the surrounding shadows!

Happy SSS! Let's have a blast during this beautiful day!!!

The little boy looks content with his spot in the shade. Interesting shot!

Nice! Perfect words for this shot.
I am thinking...when we were young, what did we do when we were out and about waiting for the adults to finish their shopping!?

Rajesh said...

Great capture of the moment.

I always love photos where the subjects aren't aware of it.

You're right - they're all organized very nicely in their little boxes of shadow :)
Nice capture!

Love your haiku that defines the shot and the shadow shot itself. Strong lines, light to dark is stunning. Another fine job.

I like how the eye is drawn out to the sunny scene from the shadows.

Not an "everyday" post at all -- extraordinary, as your poems and pictures always are!
