Shadow Shot Sunday #44


It's Sunday in Australia, and time for Shadow Shots, hosted by Tracey, at Hey Harriet.

Today I have pictures of a very old chair that was my mother's It was made by hand by an unknown ancestor of mine. Sorry that it is sitting on a terrible old carpet. Not the prettiest setting.





................................................

Let's all of us, wherever we are in this world, take a note from Australia and celebrate HARMONY DAY. All we have to do is remember that all of us on this planet should be treated with respect and kindness. We are all members of the only race - The Human Race. As Australia's motto for the day tells us - EVERYONE BELONGS.



Everyone truly does belong in the Family of Man.

The picture of your Mother's chair and it's history, made me smile inside. I have a table from my Mother and a tea pot from Grandmother. These two items are dear to my heart. Thanks for sharing this lovely picture.

So funny - just moments ago I took a photo of a chair shadow in our dining room, looks very similar! I'll probably post mine next week, since I've already posted something else.

That's a beautiful chair, I love the lines.

That's a wonderfully made chair and the shadows are quite artistic. The color of the carpet is nice and netral, you did good. Happy SSS!

The great lines of that chair throw equally great shadows.

What a wonderful piece of family history, the last shot is my fave, beautiful workmanship and shadowshot!

Catherine said...

chairs always make wonderful subjects for great shadow shots... why is that compared to other pieces of furniture??

Pagan Sphinx said...

The shadow does justice to the chair. Or is it the other way around? :-)

Happy SSS, Bobbie!
