Shadow Shot Sunday



The end of our week in the U.S. is the beginning of the week in Australia, which means, of course, Shadow Shot Sunday. That means that Tracey is going to host the meme on
Hey Harriet and we will all have fun searching for shadows.


It was a cool day last fall when my grandson was visiting, and despite the cool weather, a beach visit was called for. I enjoy the shadows in these pictures, especially the shadow of the sand, leaving his shovel.






My daughter, Rita, took these pictures.

Your grandson is adorable. All those curly locks. What a sweet shadow he makes!

That shot could have been taken where I live now. Most trips to the coast here involve a jacket. It never bothered my kids or now, my grandsons, but I grew up playing in the sand AND water!
