Shadow Shot Sunday #28



Hello Australia, and the rest of the world. It's Shadow Shot Sunday, hosted by Tracey at Hey Harriet. Please drop by there to view beautiful pictures of shadows.


My friend, Lisa, from Villas Girl Photos took two beautiful photos while she was visiting Historic Cold Spring Village in Lower Township, NJ. I have been begging her to submit them to Shadow Shots, but she is involved with other memes, and does not want to add another to her list. She told me to feel free to include them with my submission, and since I think they are exceptional pictures, that is what I am doing.


Historic Cold Spring Village advertises itself as "an Early American open-air living history museum". It holds many buildings from the South Jersey area which have been moved there, making up a charming village on a 22 acre plot. The Village Print Shop, built in 1790, is the subject of the photos.




In this picture you cannot see the wrought iron sign, which extends out from the building toward the camera. You can just make out the shadow of the sign on the building. The second picture is a close up of the shadow.




Thank you Lisa. Your photos are wonderful. I hope one of these days you will decide to join us at Shadow Shot Sunday.

Bobbie, This is a very good shadow shot. I like how the letters show up on the clapboards! (Is this you, by the way? I see you've added some team members to your blog.)

Oh, I see the shadow now! At first I didn't but thought some one perhaps had written on the picture; but I finally got it; its the shadow of the sign. Very neat. I love old historical settings and buildings.

Such beautiful shots. They brought back such nostalgic memories of when my husband and I took our three (then) young children around the States back in the Eighties. We made a point of visiting as many historic villages as we could fit in.

Thanks for your visit, bobbie, to It Strikes, and for explaining how the print shop shadow was made. I was looking at it closely before I read the explanation and wasn't 'getting it.'

I hope you enjoyed a peaceful Thanksgiving.

cheers,

Agree with you totally, what great photos and the shadow of the sign is perfect, well done to you both. :0) I haven't seen the critter photo challenge around before, your turtle is very cute!!

Tessa said...

Lovely! You really capture the ambience of this little clapboard building. I love the contrast between the leafy shadows and the sharp, clear lines of the shadow from the sign.
