If You Ain't Got Elegance...

"Elegance and Simplicity" © Paula Scott Molokai Girl Studio

"We got elegance
If you ain't got elegance
You can never ever carry it off

We got elegance
If you ain't got elegance
You can never ever carry it off
We got Elegance..."

(From "Hello Dolly" musical).

Elegance and simplicity. Simplicity and elegance. They go hand in hand, don't they? It's not that they always have to go hand in hand, but they do go together oh-so-well, I think.

I was at a seminar of some sort not too long ago and lunch was served to the group in a banquet room. And, yes, I could not resist this lovely trio all from one glass kind of shadow, and without skipping a beat in the conversation I was having with the person seated next to me, pulled out my cell phone (still maintaining eye contact and keeping the conversation going all the while), snapped a shot, and put the cell phone back in my purse without even offering explanation as to what it is that I took a picture of and why. You know how it goes. Too much information. And when you hear yourself try to explain it, you find that you have to explain what a meme is and maybe even what blogging is. And the fact that a bunch of us do this around the world once a week! Somewhere in the midst of the explanation, it does starts to sound a wee bit looney!

But, looney loves company, so:

Come join us every week, as a group 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!

Nothing can beat the elegance of those crystal glasses.


Happy w/end.

Elegance cannot be defined by the trappings of wealth and style - it is the total sum of the scene and setting. Here, the tablecloth and stemware are nice. But the liquid-y shadow adds an artistic dash of 'elegance' to the tablescape. The art here is far more than than the sum of the parts - the whole package here defines this term so well!
