Shadow Shot Sunday:
for Brenda Wade

A shadow falls across the grass.

At the other end of the shadow there are branches and flowers that bloom.

Above the flowers are other shadows.

These three photographs are crops from one I took a few days ago of the flower beds across the road from The Christie in Manchester.

Below is the whole picture.

I didn't venture to The Christie last week with any intention other than taking some photographs in the area. It was only later that I decided this photograph was capable of providing some interesting shadow shots for today's post.

We went out as usual on Saturday and on our return were informed that our dear friend Brenda Wade had passed away in the night. We have known Brenda for just the last twelve months and were only speaking to her two days ago. It wasn't cancer that took her in the end, but nontheless I am dedicating this post to her.
