Shadow Shot Sunday



"Where there is much light, the shadow is deep." Goethe

How true! With the bright sun the shadows have been so dark and crisp. A field-day for shadow chasers!
This past week I was taking an art course at a lovely site. There were so many beautiful buildings and gardens. I spent a bit of time chasing shadows!





The basketball net made interesting shadows and I caught them at different times of the day.







I loved the sculpture of this post and the shadow was just as lovely.





Be sure to check out the other great shadow chasers at Hey Harriet!, a fabulous meme created by Tracy. Her mosaics of weekly shadows is worth the visit!

Anything that is fashioned from wrought iron makes spectacular shadows, that fence/gate looking nice on the ground.

The basketball hoop is distorted well under the angle of the sun. The sculpture in shadow is wonderful, I see a person sitting in a chair. Neat effects, great shadows!

An intriguing collection of shadow shapes! Especially love the cycle of the basketball hoop and its trappings! It looks so weird!

What an interesting exercise! My fave is the gate shadow. A few years ago I took pics of my shadow, but didn't think to do objects too. Great idea.

Ain't that fun chasing shadows. I do that too and I don't know if people wonder why I took a shot of the shadows around ^_^. If they only knew that we have fun here looking each others shadow shot. ^_^ Happy Sunday!
