Day 86—Spanish Lace and Sepia

Yesterday’s challenge was shadows but there were no shadows yesterday, just high overcast and clouds. Today, there are still lots of clouds but there is an occasional shaft of sun, and when I returned home from picking Bobo up from the vet where she spent the weekend while I visited Santa Rosa, I noticed this interesting shadow of my wrought iron table on the patio. It reminds me of a fan made of Spanish lace.

Today’s challenge is anything ‘mono.’ When I was outside trying to find the elusive sun’s fleeting shadows, I focused on the dead basil stems in a pot and realized that with the brown fence behind them, the entire composition was monochromatic, almost sepia tone, and it intrigued me.
