My Shadow And More Shadows

When i got married, thats when I always heard the saying: Me and my shadow. During the first year of our marriage, we decided to adopt a young puppy from the shelter and she definitely became a part of our family since then! Our dog is full of love, she love to be around us and play with us all the time. Most of the time, when we are around the house or in the yard, or dog follow us all around and checking us out what we are doing. When we go to the kitchen, she will be there. When we go to the bedroom, she will be there. That is why my husband always say: Me and my shadow, and refer our dog as his shadow.

Normally, a shadow is a silhouette reflection of you when a light particularly hit one side of you [or an object] and transmit your detailed figure on the opposite side of the lighting. Shadow is never constant, it keeps on changing depending on how you position yourself, the object, or the lighting. One of the most commonly used lighting for producing shadow is the sun, thats why shadow is pretty common especially outside. You can see shadows of people, trees, buildings, or pretty much anything!

There are times that i like to photograph shadows. I had photograph of my shadow in the sun and shadows of my hands and made some interesting figures out of my hands. There are some really interesting ways you can do very creative with shadows and make it an art form!

Unique Tree Arts

Many of us probably heard about Bonsai plants, a very popular way of re-shaping and training trees and let the plants grow in miniature versions. Bonsai plants were known to be originally popularized in Japanese cultures and now its been practice in different parts of the world specially to gardeners and planters.

Not until today, I never heard of anyone who does re-shaping and training of trees as they grow, and trained such trees to achieve certain figures like the form of a chair, a structure of a man or woman, etc. Can you imagine a tree that is alive that have trunks and braches shape like a chair or a person? Imagine no more, check out PookTre Garden where they have wide variety of amazing collection of living trees that are currently growing in all shapes and sizes!
