Shadow Shot Sunday 10 (#53)

Some ‘home views’ from a rural village in Maharashtra, India this week. The low, slanting roofs keep the house in cool shadows in the hot summer months.

    Congrats on your prize…I love these shots, it’s so fun to see other worlds in shadows. Have a great weekend, enjoy your winnings!

  5. Love your shadow shots this week of the rural village. It reminds me of my trip to one of the smaller cook islands where nearly every house had a goat and a grave in their front yard. They all had TVs too, which took me by surprise. A big congrats on winning the Hey Harriet prize, I’m oh so jealous 😉

  6. Harriet says:

    I love these sweet glimpses into your part of the world. Lucky there’s plenty of shade because I imagine the temps would get very hot there!

    I’m so happy that you are so happy about winning the prize pack. Thanks heaps for including the giveaway collage and all the Etsy shop links here. They were all such nice Etsy folk to deal with, so it’s great that you’ve mentioned them on your blog 🙂
