Welcome to my world...

Continuing with my series of light, shadow, shade and a mirror, I dedicate this one to my father, who was a USAF pilot who served his country for over 33 years and loved the country life. He was raised as a Georgia farm boy. For you my darlin' daddy. I still miss you very much! I know you loved this song... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_sU0pAE-fE
Nice

Stinking Bishops Cheesy pun time but thats tree-mendous, It really is, the composition in that mirror is sublime and add yo that the idea. I love mirrors in gardens.

This is so beautiful! I love the light. I love how it's all in the mirror, but the mirror only has a bit of light around it. What a lovely dedication to your father
posted May 4th, 2012  
Nice tribute to your father. I like the lighting in this.

My husband is from Georgia and has a huge line of ascendants who were Georgia farm boys (old Milton Co., Clarke Co. area). What a sweet tribute to your dad....I love it!!

posted May 4th, 2012  
I love this, Maggie. What a great photo. Love the light. Such a lovely tribute to your dad. (I couldn't help but wonder if he thought of that song as he "welcomed you to into his world".)
posted May 4th, 2012  
What a sweet tribute. My father is still with me, but it looks like we both had our dads in our hearts today! This is so awesome how you framed this shot and isolated that fantastic lighting. I'm so impressed!!!

posted May 4th, 2012  
oh, and nice use of the mirror to get a unique shot!
posted May 4th, 2012  
What a fabulous, magical reflection. I love how you've set up this shot. I like how the immediate environment where the mirror is, is dark. This is such a wonderful contrast to the bright, attractive image in the reflection. The trees, the plants, the greenery, the sunlight and the shadows... what a beautiful world you live in. And what a thoughtful, touching tribute to your father.
posted May 4th, 2012  
I love this idea of yours! Lovely garden, lovely world you have! Thanks for the taste of it!

posted May 4th, 2012  
I have loved the shot of yesterday, and still love it, but I prefer that one now, because of the impression of escaping and freedom, as if the mirror was a sort of gate to somewhere "better". Perfect for a tribute to your father !
