Shadow Shot Sunday


Shadows are an interesting subject for photography. Each week many of us search them out - they lurk in unlikely spots. Many times you discover them after you check photos for the week.

I was looking back on our Mexico photos this week and found more shadows, so I decided to share these this week. On a dreary day, sun and warmth are appreciated!




(Yes, we did attend a bull fight and I did not last long! I was ready to boo the matadors but luckily my hubby restrained me!)

Be sure to visit other great shadow chasers here.

Tracey of Hey Harriet! does such a wonderful job creating mosaics of many of the shadows for the week! Thanks Tracey!

What terrific shadow shots from Mexico! At least the matadors do make great shadow shots! Hope you have a great weekend, Beverley!

The shadows accent your trip memories nicely. The flag us unfurled so the shadow is nice against the bold colors. The shade cools down the pool area, but who needs sunburn anyway?? I don't think I would enjoy the bullfight, but it is not my culture so won't comment any further except to say that in my mind, I would favor the bull in any or all of these 'contests'...

Beautiful shots and I'm with ya on the booing, to me it's a sport we can do without, right alongside cock fights and dog fights...this is no sport for civilized peoples!

Have a wonderful weekend!

That's a great shot of the matadors and their little shadows! I'd probably feel like booing them too! Have yourself a great week Bev!

I would boo too, but at least they cast good shadows!
