Light and Dark

 Light and Dark


This will be the final time I am hosting the Scavenger Photo Hunt and it seems only right that I use my hairy side kick - Moss.


Two images - one the original photograph, the other a drawing done by a precious friend. 


We had been camping during one of those precious short breaks when we could escape in between lockdowns and after a day's walking in hot sunshine, we returned to the van for the evening. Moss had been fed and was lying on the grass while we quietly drank tea and chatted about our day. The sun was lowering and when I took the photograph, the sun was reflecting off the back of the van and Moss' fur shone out brilliantly against the darkness of the wall.  Light and dark.

  1. How apt that you should end your stint at hosting this link with a gorgeous picture of Moss - your constant companion and our Grand dog. Thank you for giving us hours of fun delving into long forgotten archives. Best wishes for all your new projects. With love from a very proud mother. πŸ§‘πŸ˜€xx

  2. I like the drawing, it's very well done and an excellent likeness - Moss makes a great subject for light and dark but nothing can beat the photos, especially the second one :)

  5. Moss is so gorgeous and the light on her coat is just a perfect dark and light.
    Thank you so much Kate for all the inspiration and I'm looking forward to seeing your new projects. The time feels right at the minute for letting go of things to allow something new in.

    1. Astrid - you are very welcome and thank you for taking it over, you will be fine - my only suggestion is to keep a list of the words you use (I didn't and occasionally repeated them and I was always (very gently) told off by the hunters!!) But it is a lovely way of connecting and meeting new blogging friends xx
