Look Up! Look Down!






Hmmmm...maybe this one should be called the double cross shadow.

Sometimes I just photograph a whole bunch of leaves for as they present themselves in a myriad of ways! Witness the three images being posted today. These are all from my trip to the Northern California area to see the Redwood trees last month. I always take a lot of pictures, but this time, I'm determined to do a better job of sharing and not hoarding them.




A fern leaf acting as a 'safety net' for other leaves, cushioning, if not stopping their fall to the forest floor.


A trio that have found a permanent place to land.

Who knows? Maybe I'll have some of you looking down at the ground more often to notice the leaves that fall and how they present themselves. Would love to hear some reports back when you do!

In the meantime:

Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

Natural shadows are the best - not staged, they show up by themselves merely with a hint of sun. The top shadow is imaginative, looking to me like an umbrella and handle...our imaginations are always stimulated by shadows!

The little red leaves on the moss are just delectable!

dearest,
outside of haiku my heart, i have taken a year off from social media to practice silence, to take time to look deeply within. suddenly it is october and i feel myself resurfacing. what better way to return to the world of blogging then to share the art of remembering. i hope you will join me in this deeply meaning time of acknowledging our loved ones. i miss you. xo

The last photo says something to me deep inside.

This idea is right on. I rarely look at my immediate surroundings. This is why my husband says I have no situational awareness. He is, no doubt, right. But by looking outward, upward, and downward, I've looked into some great pictures.
