Shadow Shot Sunday...delicious and decadent...

only slightly bemused
by this delicious decay
my inner Picasso
flips through
the layers of this
rustic studio capturing
keepsakes rich
with inspiration and
texture of the past
reminding me
to live in the now
and feel the rapture
in the decadent decay
of today

Yippee...it's Saturday, 'cept in Australia, where it's Sunday...so guess what, it's shadow time!
Go to Harriet's place, it's time to play with our camera and light!

The iron chair is shaped by heat, and it leaves a dramatic shadow. A change is in the air, but changes in weather can be welcomed. At least in Autumn with the southerly sun we have long and lovely shadows...

I like your use of the word "bemused". It's a common state of being for me.

Gorgeous, rich browns in your photo.

Beautiful, beautiful tones in this photo! Love the drizzle of shadow across it too!

And we have sun! At last! Spring sunshine! This is the third day!

The first day was on my birthday - 1st October! I'm not keen on big celebrations! I prefer to wander somewhere a little different! So we travelled to the Coolart wetlands and enjoyed watching black swans and the Australian white ibis doing their Spring nesting!

The second day, I wandered Dromana to see what spring flowers were finally out! It was so refreshing!

And today, I'm not sure where we are going yet! Just out! The weather is glorious!

I've enjoyed all your posts about your new venture! What excitement!

Hope your weekend is beautiful (including the weather!)

HUGS from your soul sister as always!
