Excellent shot, clever idea. I confess I do not know this other blog of yours. I am now going to put that right!

I like the black and white interesting use of those moon pennies!

Thanks Dave, thanks for visiting over 40 Shades too!

Elizabeth - moon pennies, I've never heard that name for them before, it's lovely!

Chris said...

Honest plant? Tell me more about that....and don't lie about it either ;)

Seriously though, I've never heard about that. Clever shadow.

That plant gives a very delicate shadow on those curtains. Lovely photo!

Great photo. I've been enjoying my lunaria (honestly!) a lot this year.

Jasmine said...

Love the picture. Honesty is so beautiful. I used to stay in a flat on Leith Walk on my days off. Many moons ago. Good times!

this one is so very beautiful!

That is a lovely shot-I like the way you can see the seedheads through the fabric as well as their shadow. I love those seedheads-so beautiful and all for free!
The bunny has hopped off for the time being to be replaced by a giant cake! I get easily bored with my banner so change it a lot-in fact may change it now! Have a good week!

what a beautiful black and white photo you've created. I love that some people can create in black and white where I see color. Have a great night.

very pretty; you can see the heat of the summer and relief of shade in this photo; a very relaxing image.

Deb said...

Beautiful photo, amazing. I'd love to read a poem (or a few!) that were inspired by this. It's gorgeous.

I'm a fan of shadow images, and this is a great one. I like the way you can see the plant lit in white, almost like a negative shadow rather than the caster of the shadow.
