Shadows Rose Above

Captured this photo in Dustin’s garden as the sun cast shadows on the roses. Always trying to get a different view of these roses. They are each one very special.

There are different types of shadows in life. Many things are more beautiful because of shadows cast around them, to illuminate perhaps. Others are kept in the shadows but should be brought to the forefront. This quote always comes to mind when I think about shadows…

We must bring the issue of mental illness out into the sunlight, out of the shadow, out of the closet, deal with it, treat people, have centers where people can get the necessary help. ~John Lewis

  1. I like the photo of this flower and the shadows on it. Yes, mental health is one that has needed to be out of the shadows for a long time.
    I have met some with mental health issues and their stories are real
    Even grateful to have made friends with some of these people.

    When you look at this world and the crazy things that leaders of some areas do, who is to say who is crazy or sane?
    We are all human and it is important that people are made to feel loved, and not alone.

  2. Each shadow has a different angle, view, and cast.

    I do love the concept, it is one I have studied for a long time. Thank you! Watching shadows is as fun as watching clouds!
