Shadow Shot #15

The Jan Power's market today at Blackwood St was a successful morning for me - lots of 'admirers', some customers and a great vibe. Hopefully I'll go back next month, that's if they don't up the stall fees again (not too happy with the lack of prior warning!). Anyway, it was fun - it's always nice when others like your handmade work enough to pay money for it! My picture of my market table is a bit hard to see because of the bright sun and the shadows ... could've been my shadow shot for this week!

My 'Little Jellies' loved their sunny outing, a couple even found new homes! Happy.

My Shadow Shot for this week is of my new market umbrella (pretty green, brown and blue stripes) with dappled leaves shadowed on it against the hot blue sky. (The light 'glare' on the brolly is actually a stripey glitch in the camera ... might have to invest in a new one!)

Happy Sunday!

Hey there Ali! Glad you had a good day at the markets! The stall set-up looks sweet! I was looking at the stall photo & wondering where your new umbrella was & was all ready to rant & rave in your comment box about not showing off your umbrella. And there it was a little further down. The shadow shot! That's great!

I wanted to visit that market this morning...but...er...I slept in :(
