Shadow Shot Sunday ~ on the Green


This is part of the Green in Derby, Ct.
I took this on Thursday, a beautiful sunny day, as I stood in front of the stately Sterling Opera House on Elizabeth Street.

Immanuel-St. James Episcopal Church, built in 1843, is one of three historic churches that surround the Green. The other two are the Methodist Church, and the Second Congregational Church.
They are all beautiful in their own ways. 

Join the fun and see lots of shadows captured around the world at Shadow Shot Sunday 2.





P.S. Here's a poem that popped out of my keyboard this morning. Let's just say it's a true story.



The tree isn't up.
The gifts aren't bought.


Going shopping today?
I'm giving it a thought.


The cards they're not sent.
Don't know where the time went.

 
But I have time today 

for what needs to be.

To the stores I will go

And won't think 'poor me'
 
As I join the crowd
No whining allowed!


For it's the Yuletide season 

And that's the reason
 
I'm sending this today.
And may Santa to your house find his way!

We've given up all the xmas hassle many years ago. Good food and wine in a candle light is our way of enjoy this darkest period of the year.
Happy holidays to you and your family,
all the best for a new year 2013!
