Shadow Shot Sunday

Time to share shadows once again. With bright sun this week, shadows were easy to find. With this heat, I didn't get much further than my own garden!

Here is an update on our robins - the eggs hatched earlier in the week and they are beak, being fed by both parents.

Be sure to check out Hey Harriet! the super fun meme created by Tracy. You'll see shadows from all over the world!

Delightful, colorful shadow shots for the day, Bev! Wish I could send you some of our cool air! Hard to believe, but here in Seattle it has been one of the coolest summers so far on record!???? Who knows??? Hope you have a great weekend! Stay cool!

Very pretty! I love the pink watering can and it's shadows too. Glad the babies are doing well, and I sure hope that you guys get a break in the weather soon.

Happy SSS,

Just like babies of any species, they are hungry and squawk until there hunger is satisfied!

Simple yard shadows are delicate or bold based on our perspective. And they are everywhere, make sure we have our cameras for the shortest stroll, no telling what we may find!

this is a fun series of shots. I especially like the baby robins. I'm surprised that they are still hatching, it seems late in the summer for that. it's going to be fun watching them. happy SSS.

This must be your second hatching of robins this year. What fun for you.
Your garden shadows are wonderful. Your pretty pink watering can reminds me my pretty burgundy watering can is covered in dirt. I wonder how that happens in a garden.

How wonderful to have this active little nest nearby! This must be their second batch this year. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, those babies are delightful! (They're probably noisy when they're hungry too!)


Hello, there, I’m your shadow,
I tag after you;
Whatever you are doing,
That is what I do.

If you should fling a football
Forty yards or more,
I’ll be right beside you,
Evening the score.

If you should flick a booger
From your stuffy nose,
I will surely do the same—
Watch how far it goes!

So, friend, be very careful
What you say and do—
Whatever you are doing,
I’ll do just as you!

The shadows on the beige wall were my favorite - such an essential image. And, of course, those little chicks, birdlets... whatever they are called, so sweet!

We once had birds nesting inside our apartment in Puerto Rico. They all learned to fly and went on their merry way!

Nice work, Bev. You have a good eye. Thanks again for stopping by, Amy
