Shadow memories of summer for Shadow Shot Sunday


I love Hollyhocks. While growing up on the farm, some of my earliest memories are of hollyhocks. They grew just ouside the back door by the side of our house. In the first picture above I am standing in front of hollyhocks on our old home. The cute little boy beside me is my husband David. Although I didn't meet David until I was 21 , through the magic of photo editing I have added him to the old picture.Today we have hollyhocks growing in a flower bed beside our garage and on any sunny day in winter I can see the shadow of one of their dry stalks with seed pods reflected in shadow against our garage. Also the shadow of a Juniper tree can be seen.. This shadow is a very pleasant reminder to me of what is to come with the return of summer and the changing of the seasons.

I'm impressed with your addition of David in our first photo and I love the shadows in your second. Have a great week Ann.

How clever you are to be able to put two photos together like that! I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't told us. Nice job!
