The Backyard...

...was always the perfect place to enjoy a BBQ with friends...

...display some vintage iron furniture....

and cool off in a hot Summer afternoon...

Now its all that, plus the perfect place to find some interesting shadows!

Each backyard shadow
whispers secrets that vanish

what a great idea for having a blog party...shadow shots...i love it...i often get shadows when i am taking pics...but mine are usually not wanted...maybe i should just go with it...yes, i DID see that dress...i have been sighing over that for a while...it would require constant attention in my house what with all the cat hair flying around...otherwise, i would have snatched it up some time ago:)
