    • Gracias Carlos!! Such a lovely compliment from you. I’ve not had any formal training in this art of mine…but I think it’s a form of meditation for me and thus, sometimes the outcomes do even surprise me. I love this shot, was surprised it even occurred. These shadows are never planned for as I can’t predict when they will present…but the universe is kind to me!! Sweet dreams your way too my friend!! 😉

    This is brilliantly beautiful…truly love it

    May 30, 2012 at 1:10 AM

    • Oh Lady Day – you are too wonderful to me. Thank you so much for loving this. It’s a favorite of mine as well… So appreciate!

      May 30, 2012 at 10:10 AM

      • ~Lady Day

        How could I not love this…you see beauty where I do, in the obvious and so often over looked and taken for granted…I loved this combination of your so very much. It was deep yet clean and simple…not an easy thing to pull off. xo

        May 30, 2012 at 10:15 AM

    • Lady Day – so appreciate and do love your insight… deep yet clean ~ that sounds pretty perfect for what I was after here. The photo was so telling in and of itself I didn’t want to distract from it a whole lot – but thought it deserved something powerful in a very short verse. This one unfolded with ease – so went with it. You are just such a joy to have around. Thank you warmly – and have a terrific day!! xo

  7. Fantastic photograph and brilliant word – had really got me thinking – thank you Robyn!

    May 30, 2012 at 4:00 AM

    • So grateful for that Julie. I’m just thrilled you enjoyed it. Have had this photo several weeks now…and just kept going back and staring at it. Feels special to me too. Tree as protector again … but in a dramatic way with such a clear shadow. I’m off to NYC to day for more medical ….pain mgt. consult this time ~ not usually a fan of this field but hoping some insight is gained as I need more options. Hoping my Tree will watch over me today too!! Sending Lovexo

      May 30, 2012 at 10:26 AM

  8. Yeah, the tree is watching like a safely shade – great shot… 😉

    May 30, 2012 at 5:30 AM

    • Thanks ledakenoir. Yes – this is all I could see was a tree protecting these innocent joyful children. So glad you liked the shot too!! Sending good thoughts your way today 🙂

      May 30, 2012 at 10:12 AM

  9. and he is a guardian….this is epic Robyn

    May 30, 2012 at 5:49 AM

    • Exactly David. Guardian Mystical Tree … it’s all I could envision when meditation on this one. Epic — love that word as descriptive for this shot. YES! Thank you kindly my friend… 🙂

      May 30, 2012 at 10:14 AM

      • EPIC:)))

    Perfect words for a great photo.
    Thanks for sharing.

    May 30, 2012 at 5:50 AM

    • Aww..thanks so much Victoria… I’m thrilled you liked it. Sending good thoughts your way — off to medical consult today (fyi) – specialist in pain mgt. 4:30 am bedtime – so not very together. Tend not to like this specialty, but running out of options. We shall see~~xo

      May 30, 2012 at 10:15 AM

  11. Yes, this shadow is provacative….like the way it stretches toward them…good eye here Robyn!!!!

    May 30, 2012 at 7:38 AM

    • Thanks so much Meryl. Yes — was entranced by the arms of this tree shadow! So unexpected and I looked down and there it was. I’m sure the people in the playground thought I was crazy shooting photos of the ground!! ~ New pain consult in NYC today, maybe the tree will protect me !! — will keep you posted. Need options… xxoo

      May 30, 2012 at 10:17 AM

  12. I didn’t even see the shadow of the tree at first. Very interesting.

    May 30, 2012 at 9:38 AM

    • So funny Renee…it’s HUGE!! That is the fun of these illusion shots…keeps you guessing and wondering what else is in the photo than initially meets the eye! Happy you found it interesting and fun!! 🙂

      May 30, 2012 at 10:18 AM

  13. I learned a new word for the day! Thanks for enlightening me! This has almost a nostalgic feel, which goes so wonderfully with your words! Enjoy your day!

    May 30, 2012 at 10:04 AM

    • 🙂 Yes Puerility – cool word ~ whimsical and childish… thought it fit this 🙂 There is such a wonderful thing about the child’s untainted spirit. Should be protected (as this wonderful tree seems to be doing). I am so glad you enjoyed… Yes, I agree, nostalgic in many ways… this one really unfolded so easily. I love when that happens. Sending Love your way today KT!!!

  14. Shadows are proof of light. They do not exist in the dark.
    I wonder if they show desire…this tree wants to support these children. All trees do I think. They are the scaffolds of our childhood. ~D

    May 30, 2012 at 2:58 PM

    • Ahhh.. yes – so true what you declare here Dan. Thank you so much. Will ponder this…shadows cannot exist in dark (thank goodness). And yes – this particular tree does show desire to protect and support the innocent little lives playing in it’s shadow. Trees are amazing to me…strong and rooted – centered and secure. So enchanted by your feedback, as always ~ RL
