Who's behind those Foster Grants?...

THIS is the morning light I wake up to.  Streaming through the window directly onto my face.  So brilliant and strong that even when I tightly squeeze  my eyes shut, I can still see the orange glow thru my eyelids.  Glowing eyelids...not EVERYONE can pull off that look.  So  "Who's behind those Foster Grants?" Moi, in bed, with the glowing eye lids.  I sound like a "Clue" character that could easily off Miss Scarlett, in the library, with the candlestick...and keep Colonel Mustard all for myself.

So, I knew right away where I could find some sun for My3boybarian's 52 week photo project's prompt this week...."Shadow".   Altho I EASILY cast a shadow in the Better Half in bed, due to the sun's direct hit on me, I opted to get OUT of bed and shoot something a bit less...yoga pants, tank top and funky morning bed hair-like.










Glorious, brilliant sunlight.  If only it didn't show off all the streaks, dirt and dog nose prints on my windows and doors so gloriously and brilliantly too.  Doesn't matter...THAT'S what Foster Grants are for!  I wonder if  Colonel Mustard does windows?

  14. haha!! If he does, send him over to my place...I haven't washed our (many...many) windows for YEARS! I'm silently rebelling at hubby for designing a house closely resembling an aquarium ;)

    Wonderful shadow shots...I love that first one, and the DoF with the white flower in the glass vase is stunning <3

  23. Such amazing captures!
    I doubt Capt. Mustard would be much help with the windows, but he sure could hire help :)
