shadowed — a weekly photo challenge

I usually like to post only one picture to the Weekly Photo Challenge, but this week’s word, shadowed, inspired me to do something a little different. I try to make my challenge a verbal response to one picture I’ve taken. This time, though, I’m showing three pictures. I spun the copper sun catcher that’s on my porch and tried to get it in three different positions, depending on where I stood and how the sun was hitting it.

I have to say, the brightest one surprised me. I don’t see those colors with the naked eye. Or maybe, I just haven’t paid attention until I was looking through the camera lens.

I wonder how often I’m content with being in the shadows and miss something beautiful because I don’t take the effort to move, just a bit, and see the vibrancy and brilliance that was always there.
