Gilded cage

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Couldn't resist capturing this rusty cage and it's shadow yesterday afternoon while visiting Rob. He has a lovely room with a view into a pretty courtyard garden. This cage is in the one corner and stands about 90 cm high. I didn't have my camera with me so I used my I phone 5S ... and framed on my IPad.
Rob is doing well, walking up and down and giving everyone a hard time, hoping to get him home on Monday... Can do better things with the 5 hours spent visiting him everyday.
Have a nice day

The bird has flown Colleen. I'm sure your husband would love to fly with you as well.

A great shadow image,but where's the bird gone.
Glad to hear that Rob is getting better and will be home soonSmile

You reminded me of the joke about the wife reading a "Get Well" card and remarking to her husband that the whole hospital, doctors to orderlies had signed it. Grin I hope poor Rob will be able to get home very quickly for everyone's sake, espcially his.

Cricket has been a touchy subject since the Aussies were sent home in the T20 WC...especially as SA went on to the Semi finals...a lot better now that SA out as well...Grin

Very good job done of a surprisingly difficult photo! I marginally prefer v2, as the slghtly slanting shadow in the angle of the corner is an eye puller. Regards Martin

At least you made good use of your visit and I'm sure Rob appreciates it!

5 Apr 2014 8:11PM
So different to your usual work Colleen. Love both but V2 is my favourite.
