Inner quietness

Weekend is here. Time for Hey Harriet's Shadow Shots.


Porch shadows from the living room

"...there was quiet solitude. Just to sit and look at the landscape. An inner quietness. After dinner, to sit on the back porch and look at the light. No need for talking. For any kind of communication."

~ Lee Krasner

Lovely shot! It makes you feel like a voyeur (in the broadest sense of the word :-D)!
