Shadow Shot Sunday, hosted by Brisbane artist Tracy, arrives in the midst of the shift to Spring in the northern climes. We look for more warmth, sun and the feeling that the gardens will soon need tending.
Of course, on the night of 25 March, the temperatures were to fall to 22°F (-5°C). That is not a springtime temperature!
Okay, our imaginations alone will have to compensate. Perhaps we can go back in time, perhaps 20 years ago to (later) Spring 1991 on our patio in the Ansonia Uplands. Two-year old Allegra is tending to the potted flowering plant, water a large part of its care and feeding, No doubt the daughter learned about tending flora from Mom, and the lessons were well learned.
The scanned old print has not aged well, the colors fading and amiss. Yet, although the photo has degraded in quality, our memories have not! See shadowy captures and memories at the always fun Hey Harriet!
