Afternoon shadows



“Do not anticipate trouble or worry about what may never happen. 
Keep in the sunlight.”

~ Benjamin Franklin

Nice. Such stillness.

That quote is so good - I'm sending it to a gloomy friend right now!

Sweet Repose said...

Good ol' Ben, true words of wisdom though...and a comfy place to sit the afternoon away.

Ralph said...

The shadow is a nice warm accent to a wonderfully cozy and comfortable room. The table and leather sofa combine with the lighting to make a nice place to linger and converse...

Ben did have a way with words! Love your warm, comfortable looking shadow shot - a perfect match for Ben's words!

Enjoy your day!

I love the quote to do with the photo....

Dimple said...

Interesting shot. The shadows both emphasize and break the objects on which they fall...

Hot Fudge said...

Lovely, warm shot. By the way, I recently discovered that my great grandfather's name was Benjamin Franklin Hicks - strange name for an Australian. However, his father came from Tennessee during the gold rush, so I guess that explains it.

Love the light from the window, all it needs is a cat to soak up the sun. But then, you would have fur all over the lovely pillow.

Cozy, Where's my book?

wanderlust said...

Very nice photo, I really like the brightness of the light on the wall and pillow.

Greyscale Territory said...

Love how there are two gentle pools of light and the rest slips away into shadow! Beautiful!

Paula Scott said...

A very yummy shot you have here. It speaks of a wonderful afternoon nap to me!

littlebyrd said...

That is an awesome quote!

frayedattheedge said...

Can I come and sit there please? Lovely photo!

ewix said...

An apt quote!
I need to mediate on this since I do imagine awful things which may not happen at all.

I think I would love your house.
Hope all is well with you?

Merisi said...

Ah, to pick up a book and a cup of tea and curl up on that sofa, with my head on the sun-warmed pillow! :-)

(I saw you comment on Willow's - I enjoyed "finding" you again!)
