Paying attention

I took the photographs in this post today, Friday, October 13th, 2017.
The reason to take the photo was that I was captivated by the effect of sunlight on the houseplant and the shadows cast.

After taking some photos, I combined a couple to make the one pictured below.
If you look at the rest of the photos in this post, you can easily figure out which photos went into the making of the collage first photo.

The careful eyed one will catch the kitty sleeping behind the plant, basking in warmth of the Fall sunlight. Some nice shadows cast by the window and the plants in this photo too.

Close-up of Rambo showing off his nice soft, luxurious tummy, enjoying the afternoon sun.
Last, but not the least, the houseplant's leaves and shadows they cast.

The things that we see when we pay attention. I mean exactly that. I am sure I have looked at these houseplants several times before, but didn't quite see them, if you know what I mean.

It helps to slow the unnecessarily hurried mind and go in the slow lane sometimes. Or even be still. Right here, right now.

Linking with Saturday's Critters and Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

Enjoy your weekend!

Peace :)


  1. It’s good to stop and really look at the “ordinary”. And I am all about the slow lane! Rambo looks like he is in relaxation mode after a Yoga session.

  5. Black and white certainly does justice to these intriguing shadows.

  6. The B&W helps us t slow down and look! ;-)
