Through the window

"Character is like a tree and
reputation like a shadow.
The shadow is what we think of it;
the tree is the real thing."

~ Abraham Lincoln

Terrific shadow shot and I love the quote! How true! Hope your new year is off to a great start! Enjoy!

Lovely shadows ... perfect quote! Love the fireworks in the previous post and am sorry about your husband's accident in the snowy conditions. That would be a heart-stopper for me too! I'm relieved to know he's fine but I suspect I'd be holding my breath for a while at least in similar circumstances.
Hugs and blessings,

Nice stripey shadows!

After reading storyteller's comment, I, too, read your post about your husband's accident. I'm glad he is OK. That would definitely make a person nervous!
My husband works for the county road department, running the equipment that keeps the roads clear. I understand your concern!

Very cool striped shadows you took through the window. When it's cold out I like to take pix through the window as well.
After reading Storyteller's comment, I also went to read about your husband's accident. What a harrowing experience. I am so glad he is fine.

I like the vintage New Year postcard. I used a vintage greeting myself yesterday.

I enjoyed reading the quotes here.

Happy New Year!

The zebra styled shadows are great, the diagonal look distinctive. The tree shadows look elegant on the snowy canvas. Winter in Oregon looks so nice, extreme cold or not!

Great quote - Lincoln was really onto something. It is also said that character is what you do when no one is looking.

Sweet Repose said...

It looks as cold there as it is here...my deck popped so loud this AM, it scared all the birds out of the trees, sounded like gunshot!

Cool shot!

I just scrolled down and read about the accident. I'm so sorry that happened! What a relief that Mark is ok though! I hope you guys have a great new year. A safe one please! xo
