Shadow Series IV - At the Gardens


SHADOW SERIES IV

The Birmingham Botanical Gardens is lovely every month of the year.  I especially like to stop by late in the afternoon when the setting sun casts that special light.  See for yourself.


Well my goodness, the Table /Chair series continues and today my dear, sweet friend Bibi in Belgrade has added a grand addition to the series. Thank you Bibi!!!

ombres magnifiques, je sais pas comment tu fais mais j'adore.
splendid shades, I know not how you make but I love.

I enjoy so much this series! And Bibi's photo is just great too.
Could the clematis on your header be a "Madame Lecoutre"?

Wildeve said...

I love these. I realy want to visit Birmingham soon!

Juergen Kuehn said...

Oh, the first one is so charming, Virginia.
Absolute geometry of the iron gate and the easiness of flora - great!

Rambling Round said...

Great light casting and I love the clematis on your header.

Jumping from light to shadows alternatly: beautiful picture.
Great addition by Bibi!
P.S. You had put a comment Virginia but Intermezzo blocks the comments from Friday to Sunday to let evryone say something without seing other ones' comments... Kind of a game for the mind.

Tables & Chairs from around the world: Coffee Table Book?

What a great idea - table/chairs from around the world! I'd love to visit the botanical gardens some day.

I like the shadow pattern on the stone ball. Real nice.

Marie-Noyale said...

I think you started something interesting with the Tables and chairs series...

The shadows studies continue and are delightful!

Peter said...

Shadows are nice when pictured like this! Perhaps even nicer and more welcome in a couple of weeks! A little bit of fresh champagne under a tree?

Virginia said...

Glad you all enjoyed Bibi's nice addition. AH, I'll have to think about that book. Could be fun!

WIldeve, I hope you'll visit !!!

Marley,
Love the new shot of you!

Peter,
Get it chillin'!!!!

Thérèrse,
Got it. I never dreamed that was a plastic bag!!! Amazing.

Olivier,
Hope to see you in Paris and we can discuss ( with Peter's help) how I did it! HA

Thanks everyone for your comments and your visits.

Very lovely. I like to see flower planters tucked away into out of the way spaces to add color and life to otherwise dreary spots. The iron gate adds a nice strong counterpoint to the softness of the flowers.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great week.

Jacob said...

Two superb photos. Love the shadows!

Ken Mac said...

the gentle light is so soothing...and reflective.

V, the Cheyenne is still here..all enclosed in green fence. Wonder what's up?

Chuckeroon said...

Hi, V. Just to say I've enjoyed my drop-in on the shadows series.

Things are a bit busy these days, so you'll have noticed a shortage of RuT output.

Bestest.....as ever. 'roony.

PJ said...

The dappling on the orb, in the enlargement, is pretty darn cool.

Cergie said...

AH ! Virginia ! Would you like I send to you a picture of a French garden table (or maybe a chair) in the shadow ?
