Throw Pillows

Available to buy on…

I took my boys to the Toowoomba Japanese Gardens this morning for a beautiful walk.
As we were leaving I was pretty taken with these shadows cast on the wall, made all the more exciting by the fabulous orange/red door at the end.

The colour orange is said to stimulate enthusiasm and creativity….. it certainly did today :)

[canon 1000D, tamron 18-200, gorgeous winter daylight and fabulous company, processed in CS3 with not a single texture in sight! Those of you who know of my texture addiction should all be very proud of me for that ;-)]

    P.S. Thank you for adding this to Inspired by Miksang! :)

  • Thanks very much Trudi. I’m still getting my head around the concepts of Miksang, so you’ll hopefully see more from me there :)

    Beautiful. Just add sunlight and it’s double delight. Isn’t nature wonderful. That red door adds a lovely vibrant energy. Such a good find. xxx

  • Ohh, it was such a gorgeous day here today! Perfect for getting out into the park. I’ve never been to our Japanese gardens before – one of those things I always say I’m going to do.

    It was beautiful!! We’ll definitely be going again :))

    I love the dark shadow from the roof? that is across the top of the image too…it balances perfctly with the red/orange door on the right to frame the image :)

  • Thanks Carol, yes, that’s from the roof. It’s funny, I tried cropping it out and agreed that it made better sense to leave it there…… it seemed to balance well :))

    When I think of Japan, the colours that come to mind are always red, black and white. You’ve told a beautiful story of barrenness with hope attached at the end. :) The stark branches imply a death of sorts- but the shadows produce a sense of hope. The bright shot of colour: that beauty will return again- in time. :) (Darn- I’ve gone and waxed poetic again!) But this is the story this tells me..

  • That’s fabulous!! What a wonderful story you’ve told! Feel free to wax poetic any time you like my friend :)
