Dog Shadows

First light: My dog and a tree make shadows on the bedroom wall…

Ethereal , ephemeral, shifting light. The tree outside my bedroom window filters the first rays of the day.

It lasts for a very short time , perhaps ten minutes or so and only during winter- such is the angle of the sun.

It also reminds me of images made by a pinhole camera- the fixing of the shadows without overt detail .

Sometimes too much detail is unnecessary …just like my charcoal drawings ‘Full Moon Illawarra’
