Shadow Shot Sunday

A perfect day today to wander around St. Jacob's Market. We bought corn and had fun just looking and watching. The only thing missing was my camera. Gorgeous weather and perfect for shadows!

Here are a few I haven't shared from the past few weeks:

This is the horse statue in front of the Museum of Racing in Saratoga Springs. hard to believe - it is made of driftwood!

A few weeks ago we had visited the Blues Festival in Kitchener and here are a couple of shots from there:

(This is a concrete guitar box by the water and gardens)

The last photos are from the flood at our school yesterday! A pipe burst in the girl's washroom upstairs during afternoon recess and no one knew where the shutoff valve was (the regular custodian was absent). There was water cascading down the stairs into the front hall.
By the time the fire dept. and the board office sent someone to turn off the water, we had evacuated the school. It could have been a lot worse (as maintenance said), but there was still some damage. What an exciting way to end the first week back at school!

We were outside with over 300 kids for over an hour and a half! We were allowed in to get kids ready for home time and send them on their way.

(I noticed shadows and reflections when I was showing my husband last night - perfect for SSS!)

Be sure to stop by Hey Harriet for more wonderful shadows!

A terrible way to find the bathroom, but it did provide a shadow for you.

Is there a concrete guitar with concrete strings too? :-)


Bits of shadow and blasts of light,
Morning and evening, noon and night;

Days of darkness, gloomy and drear;
Sometimes bright ones, bringing good cheer;

Spring or winter, summer or fall,
Light or shadow—embrace them all!

I'm sorry about the damage in your school.
Nice shadow shots, especially I like photos with guitar and bike.
