        The window above our kitchen sink faces west. On a sunny day, the light can nearly blind one working at the sink, and on hot summer days the room becomes unbearably hot, so we put up this reed shade. There are shelves in the window so you can see the shadows of some the things that collect there, even though you probably won't recognize them from the shadows.

Addendum added 4/27/09:
        For those who wondered what was behind the shade: On the bottom shelf, we keep odd cleaning items like a box of Brillo pads, bottle brushes and a spinning scrubber, also empty bottles. The top shelf is filled with cow creamers. The middle shelf also has cow creamers, plus two cow-shaped cutting boards. If you wonder why cows, see my previous post: The Bovine Comedy.

Oh I love this, CJ. It leaves me wanting more and I really want to see the things behind the shade! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I like the thought of the trees in black and white- I'll try that.

That's actually kind of a comforting and warm shot. I like it. :)

What a beautiful warm shadow! We are still trying to figure out what's on that shelf!!

Beautiful warm colours in this shadow shot. It's the start of a story in a single picture...one about a fascinating house perhaps.
