Six Words and Shadowy Shots June 14-15, 2014

Once snapped the image is trapped.

"The creative act lasts but a brief moment, 
a lightning instant of give and take,
just long enough for you to level the camera
 and trap the fleeting prey in your box."

 Early Morning Shower June 12, 2014 

Garlic Harvest  June 14, 2014

Go here and here for more words and shadows!
Have a great week!


  1. The shower shot is really clever.
    Garlic is awesome. You can never have too much garlic.

  2. Great juxtaposition in your pictures.

  3. Nice shadows and a very nice quote.

    Have a fabulous weekend my friend. :)

  4. You mean those garlics will have to live with their shadows forever?

    Six Words and Shadows

  5. Love, love, love that shower shot! Very geometrically shaped shadow. Time to make something with all that garlic, huh?

  6. Don't you love it when an unusual photo presents itself to you, Kathe? You've done a great job with it.

  7. The first photo is amazing.

  8. I see a shower of light falling nicely outside shower. A great and stylish way to wake up! Lots of fresh garlic in a bowl - I am picturing it all roasted and spread over a slice of grilled bread - delicious! I wish we had CA fresh garlic back east, it is often way old by the time it arrives back East...

  9. The shadow of the shower curtain looks very impressive, and a bid ominous.

  10. I like that first one.
    I've thought about trying to grow my own garlic. Yours looks good

  11. I love those beautiful words of this great photographer! Exquisite beauty full photos!

  12. Wonderful shadow shots.

  13. Yes — that's why I always take lots of shots in the hope that something will turn out. But you look as if you might have mastered the art! :)

  14. A moody, mysterious atmosphere in that first shadowy scene. And garlic is a mean health energiser.

  15. You make everyday shower look like piece of art!
    And garlic...I looooove garlic!

  16. Very good shot of the shower! It's true that the creative moment of a photo is only a moment, but lives on. Now if only a clean house could be a moment's work and then last!

  17. gotta grab the shadow moments when you can!! love the garlic shot!!

  18. Very elegant photo Kathe.

  19. shadow is visible because there is light. Love your shadow. :)

  20. Pretty cool prost and beautiful shots?

    Perfect combo Kathe...

    TY for sharing.
