Shadow of the Reality

“When we are unhurried and wise, 
we perceive that only great and worthy things
 have any permanent and absolute existence, 
that petty fears and petty pleasures
 are but the shadow of the reality” 
 Henry -David Thoreau

How true is this ... in seconds our lives can change drastically .. in seconds that pause and switch to intense awareness of our surroundings can impact us in ways we could not think ..
Great shadow shot and Thoreau quote !
Joy : )

Chess pieces? Is that what those mysterious shadows are of? Very intriguing.
I also love today's quote-it (for the most part) is alignment with what I wrote about.

as ever, I enjoy visiting here and contributing to the fun of shadows!
I especially like the bend of the shadows.
Thoreau was quite a wise man; I almost said guy, but that changes the meaning quite a bit, yes?

@Paula, those are actually shadows of religious figurines.

Happy Shadow Shot Sunday! We've been away for a bit, but happy to be back with today's shot of the sun behind and on the face of one of our Huskies, casting her lower body and back in the shadow. We, too, have a Henry David Thoreau quote!

Love the shadow pictures! Looks like a happy crowd!

Such a pretty shot and wonderful poem to go with it. I am so behind. I babysat for 7 grands this weekend and could not open my lap top till now as three were babies. lol
