winter sun

January 11, 2012

funny how a little weak, winter sun can brighten the day

I’ve been cleaning the house, banishing last year’s dust, making room for new  

couldn’t resist a walk around the neighbourhood

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

even the birds seem  more cheerful

    I really like the way you have featured the shadows in some of your pictures.

    That’s the balance of things; light and shadow, positive, negative…

      Ruth – without the sun there are no shadows. there is a Madri proverb that says “turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”

    You’re so right about the difference that sunshine makes. I love the photographs you have shared, especially those silver birch trees. It’s not at all sunny here so I’m just settling down with my new copy of Blue and White Japan 😉

      Lis – enjoy! my Blue and White is almost worn out.

    every morning at 9.05 the sun hits a window and it reflcts the light in my bedroom. if i’m still in bed i relish on it.

    Isn’t it funny how the sun seems to bring a hint of Spring as soon as January starts?
    It has been quite cold here, yet I can already feel the change of season.
