Shadow Shot Sunday/ Macro Flowers Saturday


One of my favourite memes is Shadow Shot Sunday. Shadows are usually disregarded, but they can be such fun to actually search out.

The flowers in our garden have made some interesting shadows over the past few weeks. They are also macro shots that fit in with Macro Flowers Saturday !


Here are several of them:

Have a wonderful Labour Day Weekend - even if the weather is not cooperative (hoping that Earl does not do much damage anywhere!)

The shadows that settle in each flower add a texture, a depth to all. Perhaps it is silk we see, but light and shadow add a true character to all!

Beautiful flowers doing double duty for Shadow Shot Sunday and Macro Flowers Saturday. You're right, we take shadows for granted and have to seek them out. In your photos, the shadows are subtle but oh so there!

All you have to do is post a photo of something that makes you happy, it's that simple. I'm trying to take over the blogosphere with happiness!
