Stripes, Shadows, Light

“I asked the Zebra,
are you black with white stripes?
Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me,
Are you good with bad habits?
Or are you bad with good habits?”

~Shel Silverstein~

“Your identity is like your shadow: not always visible and yet always present.”

~Fausto Cercignani~

“I’ve earned my stripes; I don’t need to prove myself to anyone.”

~Stacey Dooley~

“The eye is always caught by light, but shadows have more to say.”

~Gregory Maguire~

“We all know the leopard can’t change his stripes.”

~Al Gore~

“Don’t be afraid of the shadows, it only means there’s a light nearby.”

~Amy Lee~

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”

~Desmond Tutu~


Thanks for stopping by friends. I love taking photos of Gibbs and Ziva with the morning sunrise, and the stripes, shadows and light it creates. The kids and I hope you have enjoyed the end results and connected quotes. Have an awesome sun-filled week!

    I love the photos, and you’ve given me a lot to think about.

    I hope you’re off to a wonderful week. Are you still in the home office?

      I used to chew Fruit Stripe gum, Lois. Forgot about that stuff! Nope, no gum for the cats. Gibbs would rather chew on a bird or a piece of bacon.

  3. Beautifully captured photos, Mary J. — and gorgeous subjects. 🐱 The pairing of quotes to photos is terrific.
    Sorry… Crystal has just killed her string (for the 10,000th time) and now demands praise. Loudly. Hugs on the wing!
