Shadowland

pattern-(1)

Sometimes it is not a plant itself that catches my eye, but the way the light falls on it casting shadows and patterns as in this delicate bamboo print.

Tremenheere Sculpture Garden. Near Gulval.

    Nice idea, Jude, and it worked well. (This would make a nice fabric pattern, or wallpaper)
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, I thought of that, lovely window blinds or cushions maybe.

  2. I love this. Can I take you as my inspiration for another way of seeing things? I need to be systematic about these things, rather than just opportunistic.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I don’t know Meg, opportunistic works pretty well. This did inspire me to visit a Japanese garden this week where I found more lovely patterns. I’m missing my camera now…

      1. I love the idea of a Japanese garden but I’ve never seen one. I was hoping my son would have photos when he visited Kyoto, but it was the morning after a very big night before!

    I agree, and this looks like a print I’d wear 🙂 Happy Weekend lovely girl!

      Thanks Gilly! Out in the garden again trying to contain the weeds. And wondering what on earth a rather large shrub is and whether I should prune it!

      1. Lucid Gypsy says:

        Oh dear, not identifiable? It’s overcast here again today and I haven’t been outside the door, good luck with the weeds, an invasion of chuggy-pigs are eating the strawberries 😦

        1. Heyjude says:

          Chuggy-pigs? The shrub flowered in winter with tiny white flowers – it might be a winter honeysuckle as they were definitely fragrant. It just seems to have exploded now and hiding some lovely geraniums underneath. Maybe I can clear the lower branched without causing too much harm?

  4. Love this one, Jude. Well captured.

  5. Great photo Jude. The school where my sister teaches has a themed photo competition every year and a couple of years ago the theme was lace. We went on a holiday to Sydney together and were madly taking photos of shadows like this everywhere because we thought they looked lacy. She didn’t win, but we had some fun.

    1. Heyjude says:

      That sounds like a lot of fun 🙂

    Oh, YES! I like Shadowland. 🙂

      Thought you might 🙂

  7. I was a bit shocked to realise I haven’t been here since the end of April so I’ve just binge-read all the posts I missed (and drowned your notifications list in Likes in the process). Your photos are as incredible as ever but I do love the harbour ones and the header shot of St Michael’s Mount was a definite winner. Congratulations on another grandson! My parents have a gross imbalance of 7 boys to 3 girls (mostly my fault. 😉 ).

    1. Heyjude says:

      ‘s all right H. I keep checking on you to see whether you have snucked a post in under the radar. I’m doing a lot of binge reading myself at the moment. Surprising amount to do in a new place, but everything is almost in its right location…

      1. Hoping to finally hit Publish on a post some time in the next hour or so. 🙂

    Quite an inspirational image Jude, it looks very oriental.

      It’s what struck me as I saw it, Japanese calligraphy!

I like a like, but I love a chat
