CDP Theme.. Shadow & Light!



It's officially the first day of winter in Australia and it's getting a wee bit nippy early morning and as the sun goes down, I like it a lot! June 1st theme for CDP bloggers is 'Shadow & Light'.  Couldn't decide and as I'm heading over to Sydney for the next week I'll leave you with four to check out. Above the early morning sun rising up behind the pinnacles of St. Mary's Cathedral. Aimee is the perfect 'muse', she's extremely patient but throws me shade, below right, when she's had enough :)


Below 'garden-nymph' Aimee! It's so much fun playing around with double exposures. I enjoyed the contrast between 'happy to help Mum' to 'enough already Mum' in both shots :)


I took the shot below back in April before the sun came up as we arrived in Kings Park for the Anzac Day Dawn Service. Although this is my last post for ten days I'm definitely stopping by at CDP headquarters tomorrow to check out your take on the theme. When I return I will be 'Gigi' to a second grandchild, how exciting is that right! Happy next ten days, take care and most of all stay safe.. à bientôt! p.s. did you notice I didn't mention how terrified I am about flying... oops just did :)

  1. Your choices are exceptional, Grace! The last one's my favourite.

    Safe journey to you. Think good thoughts on the plane. Don't watch Alive as the in-flight movie.

  7. Magical play of light in these images. Aimee is a grand subject. She looks so beautiful. And adore the mystery of light and shadow in the last scene.

    Still looks like there plenty of leaves on the tree. Do the tree loose there leaves there?

  25. When I saw the thumbnail of the top photo I thought you'd been over to Thailand and shot some wats. How much more European in close-up. Can't have more contrast than this.

  26. As you go into winter ... we go into summer!
    Great photo's Grace!

    All the best Jan

  27. How clever, Grace, all of them. I could not choose between your top and bottom photos for the highlight and shadow theme . . . both are excellent. And, look at you learning how to superimpose one image over another! You are altogether too clever.

    And, becoming grandmother a second time? I'm jealous. Congratulations. I hope all goes well.

  30. Love the photos Grace! How exciting about grandchild...I'll be thinking about you as you fly...as you may remember I HATE flying too and refuse to ever do so again. Another of the many reason I live only a few blocks away from my son and his family :D :D :D
