Light and shadows


I didn't have much time to get out and about in Berlin, but my MiL's garden offered some lovely shots. I like the way the light and shadows play on this wood bin.


I'd also like to dedicate this post to an old friend of mine, Nicole Dolci. I recently learned that she passed away after a lengthy struggle with colon cancer. My dear friend, you will be missed.

The light and the shadows of this bin speaks of life and loss - we are in the light for awhile and then fade into the shadows...some, unfortunately, before their time..

Jacob - I wasn't sure at first if this was the photo I really wanted to dedicate to my friend. But I thought the light and shadows were appropriate. You just said it alot better than I can!

Thanks for all the wishes. I'm still a little shocked. Death always makes you contemplate your own mortality - especially when the person is not far from you in age.

Always so sad to lose a friend, esp by such a difficult situation.

The photo you posted today looks like an entry for May's theme day!
