SHADOWS...

 I LOVE SHADOWS..
sooo, I decided to play in HARRIET'S
SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY...
Some of the photos are older...
some made TODAY...

A SELF-SHADOW on a quaint, wooden bridge over
the RIO GRANDE RIVER in FUN VALLEY, COLORADO...
A great-fun trip with cousins last summer.
Even MY shadow..taking a photo of....SHADOWS
This is a favorite shot in my SHADOWS FILE...


I fell totally in love forever with this adorable wooden sidewalk in CREEDE, COLORADO..
An olden truck..
much used...
much loved by it's owner, I'm sure.


No shadows...
I just love the old green, chipping paint along the bottom of this silvery ladder..
NO shadows here, either...
just a really cool photo.
I love this old truck..it's rust.. it's missing gas tank cover..the old rag used to stuff it with.
Think there's anything wrong with my LOVING OLD RUST ???
My shadowy house...

The shadow is what we think of it...the tree is the real thing."

Hi BJ!

The last photo was my favorite. The thing I like best about shadows is they make me look taller and thinner. :o)

Happy Saturday! La

Sometimes I like rust, too. I do not like rust on my beloved's well-loved truck. He does.

Your shadow is lovely, just like you...

I believe that sometimes we wee things in their silhouettes that we don't see when we're looking right at them - same with shadows.

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

Interesting. When I intently observe something it is usually something that is castng shadows. Love all of the pictures.

Love the Abe Lincoln quote. He is one of my favorite historical figures.

Love your shadows. My favorite shadows are when a young toddler sees/understands a shadow. Oh,those precious moments crossing their wee faces ... stymied. Some enjoy & others are terrified.

Have a great week ~

Love all of your shadow shots:-) One of my brothers, Claude, takes a picture of his shadow everywhere he goes to visit and has an album just for those pictures! lol It's something he started years ago and I thought was so awesome. Imagine showing the album to friends and say....here is my shadow in Hawaii...here is my shadow in Mexico...etc! hehe xoxo

So cooool a post!

Me too, I love shadows, as well. :-)

My Sat. post is not, not, not pretty. But we live next to it and... Well, I'm finally "hollering into the Net World," about it. Kinda'... ,-)

Amazing photography! I enjoyed your beautiful pictures, BJ...Christine

Ralph said...

Shadows are all about, and until this meme, I hadn't considered the artistic look they provide. So, you have nicely captured many excellent shadows in CO and TEX. The bridge leave a beauty of a shadow on the creek below - great! The old Chevy truck is much loved by its owner, no doubt starting when the key is turned - in any season. Plenty to love there!

Your homestead looks wonderful, brick facade and a bold shadow, too. Lets hope and pray for rain in the Lone Star, and soon...

Hi bj, your shots are interesting. You have inspired me to look through my photos for accidental shadow shots so I can join the party next time! I like the Lincoln quote, but I love the Russian proverb you have on the sidebar! Linda

Cassie said...

Shadows are so fascinating aren't they. I love the bridge and the wood sidewalk!
I played with some shadows at the end of my tablescape this week. I didn't even expect them but there they were. Beautiful post BJ!

Hi Lady Bj!

Wow! at last you found the coolest meme our dear T from the land down under.

I was not active in our blogysphere started March. Just too bz with all the activities I had, work & home.

I am back and hope I would be blogging the updates of my sorroundings, home, adventures etc etc.

Hope you're doing well in all endeavours in your great life. Enjoy to the max.

Happy SSS & have a blessing upcoming week.

My favorite is your shadow on the water from the bridge AND the ones where the shadows stretch across the road, especially the picket gate.

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi BJ...

What great photos, my friend! I didn't realize that there was a "photo shadow" party. I'll have to dig through a few of my old photos!

Girlfriend, don't you just love that old wooden sidewalk in Creede? It sooo reminds me of the olden towns of the wild west! Love that! I think my favorite "shadow" photo was the first...your shadow in the river! Sooo pretty! You caught a beauty there! Thanks so much for sharing this sweet post with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party this week, dear friend! I loved it!

Warmest Sunday wishes,
Chari
