Park Life

What a glorious day! I just got back from a run around in the park with my daughter and we did our utmost to soak up as much warmth as we could while it lasts.

 

 

I had my camera with me - as I often do - so I had a little fun with light, shade and shadow.

 

 

I was drawn, moth-like, to the tableaux above. I love all the contrasts at play here: weathered wood against metal, the dark grit within the vibrant turquoise and the red - one minute deep and glossy and the next, faded to blush and flaking.

 

 

I do hope today's belated summer lasts until after Father's Day, at the very least . A picnic in the sunshine would be absolute heaven.

What are you up to this weekend? Anything fun?

Chi, I Love Love Love each photo here. Firstly, of course, seeing snippets of L is wonderful and secondly, there is so much mystery that I want to know and see more... I can see the reflection of her hair... and those little footsies???

Happy mum and daughter are well and enjoying some sun rays.

Love those photographs Chi - the way you've put them together and they're so graphic. Catch every ray you can girl.. x

Gorgeous photos, Chi! Just love them. (Except the "no doggies!" even though I totally get it, although the shadow of your dear girl is stunning!). I love how they say "park" implicitly without screaming it. But oh dear...I hope you're feeling better. :(

Hi Chi - very nice to meet you :)
I love your new bio photo, it makes me happy to be visiting.
Your park photos are great too - I also have a bit of a thing about photographing shadows!
Look forward to reading more

I love seeing these little snippets of you and your sweet daughter, Chi! I love how you compose each photo, giving us just enough so our imagination must fill in the rest. The shadow of your daughter and her little feet are my favorite. Of course. ;) Hope your weather held up and you had a wonderful weekend, plus father's day.

Wow what great photos Chi. My favourite is the sillhouette of your daughter, so cute with the shape of her hair!
You have a great eye xx

Those itty bitty little feet and her little tiny hands just about killed me. So adorable! I love all your pictures, Chi! I'm so happy you and little Miss L got to play, it must mean you're both feeling better (hopefully!). What a sunny day to capture, too. Gah, I'm just squealing with delight over here! This was such a cheery and happy post. What a lovely way to start my week! xoxo

Lovely photos Chi, your daughter is a beaut, in her little red pumps. The red and blue contrasting photos I love so much, it's brilliant that your little'un is colour coordinated too :-) I never noticed the shadow of her hair, thanks Annie! Its a shame the sun isn't a little more consistent, however, we wouldn't get to see the grass so green if that was the case. Have a lovely day x

Oh, BTW, I love your new about page and your photo is brilliant, so much more you. Thanks for your nice comment on mine too x
