Shadow Shot Sunday # 56

I have to admit to SSS withdrawal symptoms, as it has been some weeks since I last submitted an image. Mind you, while we were away in Sydney I kept up to date with Tracy's Shadow Shot Sunday posts and greatly admired the most beautiful shots that were collated from the four corners of the globe.

There we were last Saturday having a cup of coffee while waiting to see a movie when I noticed these wonderful transparent orange chairs basking in the winter sun. And where was my camera? Sitting on the dresser at home. I nearly cried with frustration when Hisself reminded me that we had our new you-beaut whizz-bang mobile phones which boasted having a reasonably decent camera. Good thinking, Mr Fudge.



I know the image is not top quality, but it's better by far than our old phone cameras.

It's back to Sydney in the morning (Sunday our time) to once again help out with child minding and driving duties. What a chore, having grandchildren to hug. And of course, it will be wonderful to see how our latest little arrival is coping now that he is out of his humidicrib.

Memo to self: take the camera!

I hope Mr Fudge got a kiss for his quick thinking. That's a great image, especially for a phone. Mine doesn't do anything half as wonderful.
