Sunday is here again. This time last week was Resurrection Sunday.
We had lunch at Peter’s sister’s house and dinner at my parents’ house. It was a busy day and so wonderful to catch up with so many members of our families. This included my old church family. We went to church with Mum; the church where I grew up and then moved away from. I love going back from time to time. Some of my old school friends’ mothers still go, just like mine and it is so reassuring and comforting being around people I have known most of my life. Even though it meant missing the morning at our own church, it was worth it, just to be around my Mum and share that special celebration with her. She is the one who taught me about Jesus, after all!
So here we are a week later and another Shadow Shot Sunday hosted by Hey Harriet.
Autumn is upon us now and being in Western Australia, that means we still have lots of sun. I don’t know why though, but I haven’t felt in a photographic mood lately. I’ve been leaving it up to Peter to capture those special moments, so my shadow shot was taken some weeks ago, when it was still Summer, I think. I do remember it was incredibly hot that day. So hot the little wasps were soaking up the refreshments, along with their little wing shadows, from one of our many bird baths at our country(ish) abode.
I’ll say sorry now to anyone who is freaked out by insect photos. Sorry!!
I hope I haven’t caused any adverse reactions, heart palpitations, sweats or panic. Honestly, I know how it feels. That’s what happens to me when I chance upon a clever close up of some slimy thing with a shell perched on its back, if you could call it a back, when there is no backbone present.
I have tried to be sensitive to any phobias you may have and will definitely never post any of my spider shots. Or, if I do, I will issue a warning that some readers may be horrified or traumatised by photos OF SPIDERS!! that will follow (so DO NOT scroll down). Not today though.
I just wish people would demonstrate the same sensitivity when it comes to photos of slimy grey things with shells that they live in when they’re not out terrorising! Just terrorising; me, leafy green things, letters left in letterboxes overnight, anything that stops still for more than ten minutes on a cool, moist evening, you name it! Better still, please never photograph those creatures. They are ugly and not photogenic and should never ever appear on a screen which enlarges them ten times the size they actually are. NEVER!
Goodnight and may God bless you and keep you.
