Shadow Shot Sunday...Dead, but promising...

shadows of a win'try promise
as much as I defy
slip still
into my slumbering world
shadowy and stark
yet my heart dwells in the bits
of sun
that deftly shine
in muted minuets of mauve
and steely blue
I know what the promise brings
at the end of the long
cold death

life...




I was just sitting at my computer this AM,
thinking of something that was missing,
besides having to go into work early this AM...
OMG...

SSS...Tracy's gig...

Had my bestest friends here for a 4 day holiday,
yeah right, we worked our buttes off shopping...
hey, that's a lotta work in our world,
but now,
not only does the light glow on the outside of my lil' world,
it also glows on the inside!
my wonderful buds wired the inside, soooo...
let there be light in my lil' studio/workshop
I now have electricity...
plug-ins and a light switch...
AND
plug-ins on the outside for fountains,
how cool is that!!!

T & C...you kids is the bomb!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

I love the shadow shot. So many scenes like this around the house this time of year. Deep shadows as the sun is low in the sky. The dreams of life, as in rejuvenation of the old relics like that chair, keep spirits alive all Winter for me. Good stuff. Hope all is good with you.

peace.

I want that chair!! Lovely shadow shot. Thanks for the advice last week on camdles - i will pay more attention next time I buy some!!

Rusty said...

Perfect on that shadow - and capturing the pastel shade of the light - beautiful! ATB!

Ralph said...

The foliage may be dry and its growth long past, but it sits in a warm sun, the orange light leaving nice shadows. We may be heading for winter, but the glow feels so comfortable...

Quilt Works said...

Wonderful shadows in pink!

Alissa Nicolau said...

The warm sunshine and chair look to be an inviting spot! Such a nice scene to welcome your friends and visitors.

MyMaracas said...

Promising indeed. I want to sit in that chair - after I open that door. Beautiful shot!

Greyscale Territory said...

You sound so bubbly and happy! Love that glow of gentle sunlight between the shadows! And the tilt of the photo gives a whimsical yearning charm to the scene! Very beautiful!

Nearly at the end of report writing! It is such an endless, draining task but I should be finished tonight!

Weather outside is moody...To rain or not to rain...Warmish but a cool breeze...Grey clouds with patches of blue...Misty seas but no mist in the air...Aaahhhhhhh!

At least this is not exactly an inviting scenario for walking around with my camera! I am forced to do what I must do! Reports interspersed with visiting blogs! (Maybe a bit too much of the latter, but I need some escape!)

School closes on 10th December! I think I'll make it with a few threads of sanity!

O dear friend I always imagine how you walk/run through your world each day! If just for a brief window on time I would so love to be there - even in Winter!

Special hugs as always! Enjoy your week!

I like your world and love the mellow yellow accentuating your purple shadows as well as the distressed paint work.

I know how much it means to have electricity on tap particularly in a business like yours where light is part of the decor that illuminates objects to stop the roving eye and open the purse.

Catherine said...

love these shot - the colours and patterns are so melancholy and autumnal...

nana_ang_poppaphil said...

Love your shadow shot, it looks very cold over there now, and the light in your photo looks very subtle.

Glad to here you have had a fun break.

Paula Scott said...

Just in time for the season of light! Funny how we take for granted such things as having light. We assume we should have it at our beck and call.
Truly a gift.

I'm glad you took time out from shopping to post this lovely poem and photo. :)

Cassie said...

Great ShadowShot. Poem. The BeSt music to view by!!

Hey Harriet said...

haha! A four day shopping holiday! Sounds fun! The new studio sounds fab indeed! And I'm loving your new banner photo! Oh and your shadow shot is not too shabby either ;) Enjoy the rest of your weekend Sharon and may the sun continue to shine. If it shines long and hard enough it may melt the winter away. Wouldn't that be sweet!?! :D

Ha! I do miss Yah, specially when I see all the goodies in your shop. I hope I could dig in there & send all of them to Stockholm.

Oh ya! am very bz with all this crap at work & home. Never ending story.

B4 to say much, I love your shot. That spot looks my spot. A much vintage & shabby things are great. Seems like myself, as years goes by, am going vintage too.

Ahhh... luv the prose again.

Hope everything are in the best in your way.

Take care & lots of hugs to warm you UP.

The warm sunlight against the cool shadows really dress up the scene.

Sounds like you have a better set-up for your studio. Congratulations.

And a weekend filled with friends is always a great weekend.

Enjoy the sunny spots in each day:)

I love the soft, golden light; the shabby chic aura; the faded glory of old lawn furniture. The photo has such a nostalgia feel. Well done!

Still autumn over there.
I visited my friend's summer/winter house - it was beautiful even if it was grey, no sun...but the air was so fresh and it was quiet. Lovely.
Have a good week!
