A shadow of the real thing

.
.
All that's left at the end of the day, and after the day I've had, there's just nothing else left... We're having MAJOR school issues for the coming year. I'll fill you all in later, if I try to get into it now I'll just get myself all worked up again and I think if I did that my head would actually, physically, explode.


Visit Ruby Tuesday for more reds from around the world.

I hoppe your head doesn't explode yet. It's wonderfully evocative shot.

Mojo said...

Well if this is what you come up with when your head's exploding... wow! I hope whatever is creating the turmoil is resolved soon. Because you'd look kinda odd without a head. It'd be hard to shoot that way too and that would be a great loss to the world.

What a great pic. This is something I would have hanging in my home as a great piece of ART

A great picture. Shadow against folded paper?
Not to be mistaken.
Ever, in any part of the world.
I prefer chilled glass bottles.
Then it really lives up to the ad image.

Sad to learn about you have major school issues. I know them too well. The mere thought make my diaphragm curl in knots.

I'll say a prayer for you and the family just now.And I'm sending you my favorite psalm,the 121th.

Uh-oh.
Wishing you the best.

But the photo is great.

School issues? They DO take some of the fun out of being a parent!

Neat shadow!

Jen said...

No explodage. It hurts, plus because you're the mom, you'd have to clean up your own brain matter mess. ;) I'll be right there with you with the school issues very soon, I suspect. I'm letting it all just slide for another week and then I have to face it all for the upcoming year. We're still recovering from the spring. :( Hang in there sweetie!

Mimi said...

Sorry to hear about the school issues, I guessed from the twitter bits at the side that it was MAJOR. Can't imagine being in that position, not nice.
Great picture, Robin, hope things improve very soon.

I like it!
I have to say having visited here often when I first looked at it I imagined an old stone wall with an opening and the bottle shape etched in the stone. :)

Really cool shot.

Ralph said...

The bottle seems a bit shimmery - the moving shape gives our imaginations a workout. I see a large bottle of white vinegar, the ruby shapes very cool, indeed!

eden said...

Very nice. You are very creative, Robin. Love it.

nonizamboni said...

I couldn't take my eyes off the bottle and daydreamed about its size and venue. . .in the meantime, stay cool! Hope today is better.

gee said...

This is a perfect piece of art. Thumbs up!

Sheri said...

Great shot!! Now I want a coke!

Lesa said...

Wow! You should enter this in the Shadow Shot Sunday meme too.

charmie said...

wow, lovely shot!:)

angie said...

How exciting about your piece being auctioned off at blogHer!

Boo about the school stuff. Hope it all works out without too much headache.........

Meri said...

Love the shot, Robin! Hope the school problems resolve themselves quickly -- not worth having a cranial explosion over. My Ruby Tuesday shot is really different from yours (www.memeplay.blogspot.com). Mosey on over if you're not too stressed.

Marice said...

maryt/theteach said...

Robin, it's exraordinary!! Was it drawn there on the wall/sidewalk? It isn't a shadow is it! G-D you sure know how to take a pic! :)

maryt/theteach said...

Robin, how about putting this one in your Etsy shop?

Minnesota Mamaleh said...
