The golden light of late afternoon casts lengthening shadows across the emerald-green grass.

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow.

The shadow is what we think of it;

the tree is the real thing.

I’m on the road a lot so when I get some time to relax

I definitely take advantage.

This is Jack, after 3 months on the road, relaxing in the shade of a tree in Townsville Botanic Garden.


There are more shadowy scenes and shady characters here…

  1. The shadow looks really cool!

  2. Molly is such a cutie. 🙂 Happy New Year pommepal. xxx

  3. he does look like he is saying come on now – and hurry up.. or he might be saying – really? Really?

  4. All fab shots, my favourite is the trees, but I also love Jack in his favourite trousers 😀

    • Oh yes, those “happy pants” pop up in a lot of photos. As you probably noticed he doesn’t trim his beard when we are travelling, it goes with the whole image… 🙂

  5. Beautiful photos. Life would be one dimensional without shadows. There’s a video floating around the internet of small children discovering their shadows. It’s delightful. Jung’s theories about our personal psychological shadows that we can’t see, but others can, is fascinating. He maintains that once we look closely and accept the reality of our shadows, we discover their gifts. A shame others can’t photograph those shadows so we can discover their beauty like these.
    Thanks for the delightful photos and glimpses of life across the world.

    • That is such an interesting comment Eileen. I hadn’t heard Jung’s theories about our shadows, I am going to check it out on Google. How lucky we are today to have so much information, literally at our finger-tips

  6. Jack looks VERY relaxed!! Lovely shadows
