An early fall afternoon with the golden afternoon sun on a Sunday afternoon in Balboa Park, San Diego...
The reason for the trip last month was sad (my mother in law's funeral), but getting to San Diego for us as a family is a rare thing. We did get ourselves over to Balboa Park to enjoy the wonderful architecture and gardens. And, as you can see, we are never without shadows that delight. I thought these were particularly scrumptious. I feel like I could just close my eyes and picture myself wearing a long, slender, black evening gown as I do slow, luxurious, waltzing turns down through these shadowy arches. And the music? One of my most favorite waltz pieces is the "Appalachia Waltz" written and performed by Mark O'Connor, along with Yo Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer. My most all time favorite trio in the world.
So, close your eyes. Join me in a waltz through these arches to this incredibly beautiful music:
"Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see." (Martin Luther King)
Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Hey Harriet. Entertain your muse waltz on over and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2010 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account. Click here to view them.
