Shadow and light, light and shadow.

I believe in the resistance as I believe there can be no light without shadow; or rather no shadow unless there is also light.

~ Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

Moon in the shadows.

Sometimes the moon is light and sometimes it’s in shadow, but you should always remember it’s the same moon.

~ Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

Today’s photos are in response to Susanna Conway’s December Reflections prompt for today:  Shadows.  Because today is cloudy and it’s difficult to find shadows, I’ve gone back to some older photos from this year that never made it to the blog.

Shadows on the dock.

Be good, be kind, be loving.  Just Be.  🙂


Robin is a photographer, artist, writer, yoga teacher, sometime poet, wife, mom, grandma, daughter, sister, friend, and occasional traveler currently living on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She shares her daily walks and meanders, a lot of quotes, some of her artwork, and a lot of her photography here on Ye Olde Blogge. Older posts can be found at Life in the Bogs, her previous blog. Robin and her husband are (still!) in the midst of renovating the house and cleaning up the property they refer to as the Wabi-Sabi Ranch, 35 acres that include marsh, a dock on a tidal creek, meadows, and woodlands. Every day brings new discoveries.
