Great shadows from the cupola in the library at Cotesworth Plantation.Lot's of late afternoon shadows outside the library too.If you remember I posted about Cotesworth as one of the homes in the movie The Help.Wouldn't it be lovely to have your own library on the grounds of your property-I am afraid I would move a bed in in the winter and stay there by the fire reading until it turned warm again! I am joining for Shadow Shot Sunday.

Such a pretty little house!!! Neat to have a separate building for it. Looking up at the cupola, reminds me of Old Waverly near West Point/Columbus, MS.

I love to look up, up, up and discover shadows!


If I were a shadow,
I would seek the light;
There I would glow sleekly,
Black and shiny bright!

Neat little library. Sounds like you have a good plan when you get yours. Peace

I am in love with anything Plantation. I know it was not the best of times for the slaves, but the whole, self contained life style has me in Ahl. I think this little darling building is just divine. I have a library room, but could only dream to have a whole library building, especially if it looked like this. Thanks for the tour. I love seeing these things always.

What a darling little library. Your pictures with the shadows are great. I haven't seen the movie help, but I have read the book and listened to it on tape. As soon as it comes out on DVD I am going to see it.

Wonderful shadows, both inside and out.

Oh wow! That's lovely and I wish I had my own little library like that one. I'll just have to make do with my rickety old bookcase in the living room :)

Thanks so much for all of your wonderful contributions to SSS over the years! Great news is that a little team has formed to continue on with SSS. Woohoo! I'll be posting the details on my blog next Sunday :)

So pretty! I love shadow shots. FUnny thing is I never noticed them until I started to blog. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

How very lovely---sleek and elegant. And of course, knowing the light and shadow are playing down on BOOKS---that only adds to the charm. Libraries are just magical, and I've counted up my "cards" just now---I've had fourteen (counting only one for HERE, with all the branches there for the enjoying).

I love your eye for atmosphere and shadings.

Stay well and warm this most wonderful of Seasons!

I basically stayed in bed and read all weekend. Our horseshow was cancelled and I was kinda glad cause even though they said the temps would be better it was still too cold for me outside.
