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)

Scattered Shadow Markings

Shadow patterns on a door in my home

Like crazy etchings
Like fractured bits of branches
Like a troubled mind

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

The shadows have a brushed-on look, as if an Impressionist painter had been at work.

Ah, these shadows do look a bit like my mind these days -- it's been a busy week!! Great capture for the day, Gemma!

I love soft, delicate shadows like this.

Kelly said...

That's certainly a thought-provoking Haiku you included with this! I like both the Haiku and the photo.

Ralph said...

The speckled lighting adds shape and character to the interior white. It almost as a lacy appearance, adding a rich texture to the portal. Very nice effects!
