Shadow Shot Sunday

Finding shadows offers an interesting challenge when days are cloudy and we have had a few of those days this past week. But the challenge of the hunt is always there and I found a few shadows this week.

Yesterday I took my class to Westfield Heritage Park as part of our pioneer unit. I always enjoy that trip into the past. Here are a few photos I took:

Be sure to visit Tracy's blog "Hey Harriet" and check out the great shadow-chasers there.

You found shadows everywhere! I especially like the ones along the base of that railing.


A shadow, a shadow, a shadow you say?
A shadow is coming to dinner today?

Oh, what shall we feed it, and what will it eat?
Just toss down a few rays of light at its feet,

And watch its dark mouth gobble up every ray,
But be sure, my friend, you don’t get in its way;

Keep out of the light so it won’t gobble you.
(If I were the hostess, that’s just what I’d do.)

A shadow is easy to feed, so they say,
So welcome your shadow to dinner today.

Shadows here and there

Lovely shadows and it does indeed look like a great place to visit, Bev! Marvelous captures for the day! Enjoy your weekend!!

Beautiful shadows! Please come see my Shadow shots

This is a nice place to visit - although to live in it 'in the day' would be a hardship. I'm thinking of central fireplaces for uneven heat in the winter, for instance. So as a restored homestead, it is quite beautiful and well detailed. The four post bed and ruby chaise are beautiful and perhaps even comfortable!

I have never been to that park. Hmmm. Neat shadows you found there.

I love that first photo. All shadow with just enough sun for the railing shadows to fill. Perfect!
And the shadows of days gone by...someone (my grandmother? one of her sisters?) had a little drawer table like that, and someone else a rocking chair...

Love the perspective in the first shot, and the soft subtle shadows in the second! Looks like a nice place to visit.

Love the boardwalk and railing, but there are so many shadows playing in that shot of the bed. Dark and light, sharp and blurred. Good stuff!

Good shadows, and a little peek into the past.
